An Ode to Frozen Desserts

June 21, 2013

We've scoured the web, found our favorite food blog posts, and now we're bringing them right to your desktop. It’s hard work, but someone has to do it.

After waiting patiently for months on end, it's time to bring your popsicle molds out of storage. With today being the summer solstice and all, we wholeheartedly support the return of frozen treats on a stick. We're still recovering from testing recipes for our frozen desserts contest (vote now!), but that won't stop us from making these icy sweets over the weekend.


  • And for the big kids, a spicy twist on the traditional popsicle. (The Year in Food.)
  • Or if ice cream is more your style, how about Roasted Apricot Buttermilk Ice Cream with Almond Streusel? (Reclaiming Provincial.)


  • Roasted strawberries and toasted coconut make their way into this frozen treat. (Joy the Baker.)
  • If you prefer your roasted strawberries served in a glass -- instead of on a stick -- try Ashley’s milkshakes. (Not Without Salt.)
  • Is moving onto pie after all of those popsicles inappropriate? We're going for it. (Amateur Gourmet.)
  • And to balance out all that sugar, here’s a beautiful veggie-laden dish. (The Forest Feast.)

The grocery store is my happy place.

Apologies for the shameless self-promotion, but my post this morning is quite apt! Triple Midnight Chocolate Ice Cream + Market Strawberry Sorbet: I really think they came out well!
