  • Rainbow sherbert is not only delicious, but it is fun to serve and eat because of the swirl of colors in each scoop. Baked by Rachel made Homemade Rainbow Sherbert using fresh which captures the colors and the flavors of the store-bought version perfectly. The DIY version uses fresh orange juice , lime juice and whole raspberries to capture the flavors traditionally found in rainbow sherbert. Although not required, a few drops of food coloring can ensure that the colors look picture perfect.
  • Another colorful frozen dessert comes in the form of Matcha, Strawberry and Coconut Popsicles from Alyssa and Carla. These popsicles – which also happen to be dairy free – are made with three equally delicious and colorful layers that come together into one delicious treat. The The strawberry layer uses a fresh strawberry sorbet as the base, while the matcha and coconut layers use rich coconut cream to give some contrast to the pops. Freeze each layer in sequence for perfectly layered pops.
  • The Gluten Free Alchemist made a gluten free version of a classic dessert in this Boozy Orange Strawberry Trifle. Trifles are wonderful entertaining desserts because they can be prepared well in advance, and this version is divided into individual jars for easy preparation and serving. The trifles are made with orange sponge cake that is laced with orange liqueur and layered together with orange curd, fresh berries and white chocolate custard cream. It’s colorful and seasonal, a great choice for summer dinner party.
  • A batch of Mocha Cream Popsicles from the Cookie Rookie are a good alternative to a blended coffee drink on a hot afternoon. These popsicles are easy to make because they cleverly combine ingredients that you probably already have in your freezer. Start with hoemmade or premade iced mocha and pour some into several popsicle molds. Freeze the coffee layer until it is just starting to firm up, then add a layer of chocolate chip-studded frozen yogurt and a bit more of the mocha mix. This gives your popsicles a wonderfully layered look anda great combination of chocolate, coffee and cream.
  • If plain old mocha coffee drinks are getting a bit boring, mix things up by making the Iced Salted Caramel Mocha from Brewed Daily. This cool coffee drink combines rich chocolate and savory-sweet salted caramel in a mouth-wateringly good drink. You can easily make salted caramel sauce for this drink by adding a pinch of flaky Kosher salt to premade caramel sauce (taste to make sure you have just the right amount), but you can also purchase salted caramel sauce to streamline the process. The indulgent drink is perfect on a hot afternoon, but you can also treat yourself to one on a warm summer morning if you want to treat yourself!
