Planning to invite some of your closest friends for a simple get-together? Instead of a simple barbecue party, why not satisfy your cravings with some frozen desserts? If you’re tired of the usual, simple ice cream flavours, you can give a new twist to some old favourites you can easily make at home.
GMR.com.au says bring your Aqua cooler in your backyard and treat yourself, your friends and your family with these three sinfully delicious treats!
The best way to achieve the right balance of taste is to mix sweet flavours with the tangy ones from fruit desserts. To get the most satisfying taste, double the sweetness by combining strawberries and mangoes, like in this crumble recipe. The interesting contrast between the fruits’ colours and textures makes this dish even more vibrant and indulgent. Here’s what you’ll need: pitted, peeled and sliced large mangoes, strawberries, nutmeg, granulated sugar, lemon juice, Minute Tapioca, ground cinnamon and kosher salt.
Frozen Yogurt Cocout Pops
These striped treats are made with a mixture of coconut-infused yogurt and in-season fruits like peaches and strawberries. To add a final tropical touch and an interesting texture, top them with coconut flakes. You’ll need fruits such as peaches, blueberries and strawberries, sugar and lemon for the fruit puree. For the coconut yogurt, prepare one cup of think plain yogurt, powdered sugar, coconut extract and unsweetened coconut flakes for garnish.
Grilled Banana Bread Ice Cream Sandwiches
Give these favourite baked goodies a makeover by grilling buttermilk-based banana bread and then filling the halves with your chosen ice cream flavour. This banana bread recipe is extremely flavourful, especially because the bananas have first been roasted to enhance their natural sweetness. To make these, you’ll need unpeeled bananas, all-purpose flour, baking soda, table salt, eggs, sugar, unsalted butter, canola oil, whole buttermilk, vanilla bean paste, toasted walnuts and your favorite flavour of ice cream.
Prepare these simple treats and have fun with your family and friends.
