Keeping cool on a hot day can be a bit of a challenge. Everyone wants to spend time outside when the weather is nice, but once you come back it’s nice to have a fun way to cool down with some cold desserts. Keeping the AC on all day can get expensive, so we’ve created a list of alternatives. Whether you’re trying to keep your whole family cool or you’re looking for self-help, here are a couple of fun cold dessert recipes to keep cool in the summer!
Malts: The classic cold dessert
Let’s start with the most basic of chilled desserts. The quickest way to get a cold sweet treat is a few scoops of your favorite ice cream. But that’s a little bit boring, so let’s spruce it up with malt recipes!
Malts are a super easy and delicious cold dessert that is easily customized to your preferences. All you need is vanilla ice cream, milk, your favorite toppings, and a few heaping spoonfuls of Soda Fountain Malted Milk Powder.
Whether you’re a chocolate fanatic or like fruity ice cream, you can adapt your malt to suit your tastes. Below are a few recipes from CLT Foods that are certified tasty.
Peanut Butter Chocolate Malt Bars
The next cold dessert recipe is a little less conventional, but it is definitely a delicious way to cool down. This recipe combines everyone’s favorite rich dessert flavors: chocolate and peanut butter. The Peanut Butter Chocolate Malt Bars are a cold dessert after everyone’s heart. With the added flavor of Soda Fountain Malted Mike Powder, this dessert is a decadent and refrigerated dessert that everyone in your family will be wanting more of.
While you can make malts right before enjoying them, these malt bars need a little bit of prep time. They need about 2 hours in the fridge, so make sure you make them before you head out into the hot sun.
Grasshoppers and Pink Squirrels
It’s not just kids that need to keep cool! Adults can enjoy a fun malty and cold dessert that has an added boost. CTL Foods’ Grasshopper Malt and Pink Malty Squirrel cold dessert recipes are a great treat for any sunny gathering or just a casual weekend afternoon.
For the Grasshopper, you’ll need Crème de Menth, white crème de cacao, ice cream, and Soda Fountain Malted Milk Powder. The pink squirrel is equally easy with just white crème de cacao, cream de noyaux, ice cream, and malt powder.
Having a way to cool down is an important part of the summer months, so make sure you’re prepared with some cold dessert recipes before the hot months arrive. If you have any awesome additions to this list, let us know!
