Let's take a look at these 12 oven free ways to beat the heat this summer, shall we?
Homemade Blueberry Buttermilk Popsicle // These babies are refined sugar free, use simple ingredients and are packed with vitamins and good for ya stuff. All you need is a popsicle maker!
Eggless Coconut Ice Cream // Just like the title says, this stuff is egg free but just as tasty as the custard-based stuff. All you need is some heavy whipping cream, coconut milk, sugar and a dash of vanilla and coconut extract.
Oreo Tiramisu // If ever there were a dessert baby made out of the marriage of my husband and I- this would be it. He loves Oreos and I just adore tiramisu. So, it's no surprise this happened. Put it all together and let it sit in the fridge for a bit. Then, serve cold. MmMmm.
Nutella Chip Ice Milk // This Nutella chip ice milk is much lighter than ice cream but still creamy and sweet. It's incredibly refreshing on a hot day or night. The Nutella freezes into little chips which harden a bit more than the base, so you're left with slight crunches of chocolate hazelnutty bits mixed throughout. Yum!
Vegan Chocolate Milk // This drink almost reminds me of Yoohoo, but with waaaaay better ingredients. Remember that stuff?
Spicy + Salted Coconut Milk Mango Popsicles // This is beyond easy! You basically blend coconut milk, mango, sea salt, honey, greek yogurt, lemon juice and a dash of cayenne pepper together, pour into your popsicle mold, and BOOM you're done.
Organic Green Tea Ice Cream // Let's boost that oh-so-good ice cream with some green tea antioxidants, shall we? Dessert with benefits? Yes please!
Coconut Ice Cream // This is the old school, custard-based ice cream we all know and love. But coconut-a-fied. Because, coconut.
Lavender Vanilla Lemonade // Surprisingly refreshing during a heat wave- vanilla, lemon and lavender were born to play together. Vamp up your summer drink staple, stat!
Sweet Corn Ice Cream // Summer always means corn on the cob; whether it's at a picnic or grilled during a BBQ. Why not take the beloved summer veggie and turn it into a dessert? Super delicious!
Peppermint Vanilla Bean Ice Cream // I know peppermint is usually reserved for the Christmas season, but it shouldn't! Peppermint adds that extra chill and coolness this ice cream needs to really cool you off after a hot one!
Whipped Coconut Cream // Whether you're topping a store bought pie or angel food cake, making as a filling for pre baked cookies, or placing a dollop on freshly made milkshakes, this stuff is a delicious and non-dairy way to take you straight to Flavor Town.
