Freezer Desserts: Seven Healthy Recipes to Try Out This Summer
Nothing is better than enjoying a bowl of cold ice cream on a hot summer day, and if ice cream just doesn’t seem to hit the spot, then consider one of the many other frozen summer desserts that are a little more filling. These freezer desserts don’t require a lot of preparation or attention, just a bit of frozen magic to make them happen.
Popsicle in Paper
This is an easy treat that kids can get involved with making. Dump a large container of vanilla or chocolate ice cream into a bowl. Crush your favorite cookie or cereal in a Ziploc bag before adding it to the ice cream. Stir all of the ingredients together then spoon the mixture into a paper cup. Add a Popsicle stick before putting the cups in the freezer. Unwrap the paper cup a little later for a colorful treat.
Key Lime Pie
For a green treat that matches the new leaves and grass of the outdoors, create a key lime pie with graham cracker crust. Use juice from limes instead of juice from a bottle for a more authentic taste. Top the pie with meringue before placing in the freezer.
Ice Box Cake
If you’re looking for a healthy cake similar to a fruit cake, then this is a dessert you should try. All of the ingredients are combined in one bowl, but you will pour the ingredients into the side of an empty cereal box before putting the cake in the freezer. Start by combining a yellow cake mix with maraschino cherries, raisins, and fruits that are typically used in a fruit cake. Add walnuts and a bit of cinnamon. Marshmallows can also be added for a bit of soft texture.
Frozen Strawberry Cake
Combine a cheesecake mix with strawberry ice cream and add to a crust of crushed graham crackers. Top with fresh strawberries and drizzle chocolate syrup on top before you put the cake in the freezer.
These are a simple treat to make that most children will enjoy. Melt baking chocolate and dip either whole or sliced bananas in. Place them on a piece of wax paper before putting them in the freezer so the chocolate can harden.
Ice Cream Sandwiches
This is a homemade spin on the traditional ice cream sandwich. You can use a store-bought cake that is sliced or make your own cake to slice. Add your favorite ice cream between the cake slices, cover in fresh fruit, and freeze the sandwich until the cake is slightly hard.
Slice your favorite kind of apple and drizzle the slices with either caramel or chocolate. You can add a Popsicle stick before freezing to make them easier to hold. Create a yogurt dipping sauce with your favorite kind of yogurt for another fun summer treat.
Summer is a time when you usually want something cold after a long, hot day. These are just a few simple treats that are easy to make, though some might take a little more time to prepare.
