Non-Dairy Peach Frozen Dessert from Everyday Good Thinking makes for a perfect healthy vegan treat! @hamiltonbeach

It’s August and chances are it’s hot where you are. Ice cream, sorbet, gelato, sherbet or frozen yogurt are churning in ice cream makers across the country, because nothing says late summer refreshment like a frozen dessert. But if you’re trying to stay beach-ready or have to deal with certain dietary restrictions, you might want to steer clear of fatty, sugary desserts and opt for something a little lighter. That’s where this dairy-free peach frozen “yogurt” comes in.

Luckily, peaches are plentiful this time of year, and they add a lot of natural sweetness to the fro-yo. You’ll only need to add a little bit of sugar.

All of these light, fresh ingredients mean the natural flavor of the peach can really shine through in this non-dairy peach frozen yogurt. You’ll want to come back to it again and again all summer – and if you freeze your peach slices, you can come back to it all year long!

Strawberry Cheesecake Ice Cream from Everyday Good Thinking, the official blog of @hamiltonbeach

When you have a little extra time to make ice cream from scratch and the kids want to help out, this is your go-to recipe for that special treat. This rich and creamy ice cream is reminiscent of custard and tastes like a decadent strawberry cheesecake. Despite its sinfully delicious disguise, this ice cream is easy to pull together and looks beautiful presented on a cone or in a bowl. You could even spoon it into a graham cracker crust and freeze it to make an ice cream pie for a unique birthday cake or party dessert.

Perfect for summer! Watermelon Lime Mint Sorbet from Everyday Good Thinking, the official blog of @hamiltonbeach

Before seedless watermelons were as popular as they are now, kids used to stand in the backyard behind an imaginary line spitting watermelon seeds as far as they could. I was never a seed-spitting contest winner, but I enjoyed the summer ritual nonetheless. Sometimes I wonder if kids still have these little competitions, or if it will forever be just a fond memory.

Watermelon has always been a summer fruit that carries feelings of nostalgia. There’s always a wedge of bright red watermelon in the smiling face of a child during the humid months of late summer, and there’s always leftovers being bundled in plastic wrap and shoved in the fridge next to leftover potato salad from the last picnic.

But what about us? What about the adults? Sure, we all love a juicy watermelon wedge from time to time, but many of us would rather enjoy the ripe summer fruit in a way that didn’t stain our favorite tank tops with pink drippings.

I love making watermelon sorbet because it celebrates seasonal ingredients in an unexpected way. Most people have tried berry or mango versions, so using watermelon gives sorbet an updated twist. It’s perfect for an afternoon snack, a cool after-lunch treat or a refreshing after-dinner dessert for a party.

In the recipe below, we added mint and lime to the watermelon to give it a vibrant and refreshing punch. We also tried substituting other herbs (like rosemary, thyme and basil) and other citrus juices (like lemon and orange) to create interesting layers of flavor. Everyone had a different favorite, but the rosemary-mint-lemon combination was very popular.

Strawberry Lemon Frozen Yogurt - perfect healthy sweet treats for summer! from Everyday Good Thinking, the official blog of @hamiltonbeach

When I was six years old, I thought ice cream was a magical thing only to be found in curved containers from the store or huge buckets at ice cream shops. I had no idea there was a difference between frozen yogurt, sorbet, sherbet and ice cream – and I didn’t even know gelato existed. The only thing I knew or cared about was that ice cream was delicious and I wanted to eat as much of it as possible. Fortunately, my parents had similar views on ice cream, so we had it after dinner almost every night.

Fast forward to today, and I’ll tell you a very different story. I know a lot about ice cream, frozen yogurt and all those other frozen treats. I’ve learned how to make it, I own an ice cream maker and I am lucky enough to work with the test kitchen and sample new recipe ideas. (Tough life, right?)

Strawberry Lemon Frozen Yogurt - perfect healthy sweet treats for summer! from Everyday Good Thinking, the official blog of @hamiltonbeach

What I’ve learned is I really love frozen yogurt, often more than ice cream, and this particular frozen yogurt is fantastic. Especially in the summer, the tangy brightness of “fro-yo” keeps me feeling refreshed and my sweet tooth feeling satisfied. Greek yogurt is thick and creamy as is, so adding sugar, strawberries, and the zest and juice of a lemon only makes it better. And that’s all the ingredients you need. It almost seems too simple, right? Don’t be fooled into thinking (as I was) that this awesome dessert can only be found in a market or a shop, when it’s as easy as a handful of fresh ingredients and an ice cream maker.

Happy National Ice Cream Soda Day!

 

We posted recently about the Black Cow, an ice cream soda made with vanilla ice cream and root beer, but we don’t want to stop there. Today is National Ice Cream Soda Day in the United States, a day that brings back happy memories from our teenage years at the soda fountain or diner. To honor this beloved pastime of combining ice cream with soda water and syrup, we pulled together these fantastic recipes from around the web that are sure to make you smile.

Test Kitchen Tip: The classic recipe for ice cream soda is soda water, flavored syrup and vanilla ice cream, but feel free to switch it up and go wild. Kids love the Purple Cow, which is made with grape soda instead of soda water. Sometimes, we even top it with whipped cream!
