What is summer without a little sand, water, and of course ice cream? Frozen treats on a hot day that cool you down and feed the soul. However, the truth is dairy is not everyone’s friend. There have been many summer lake days that my child would say they felt sick and needed to lay down after enjoying a big ice cream cone at the beach. As a mom, I wanted to find a way for him to enjoy the frozen treats of summer without feeling sick and ruining his day after. Food should energize you and make you feel amazing, not laying in bed sick.
I began to play around with a few recipes in the kitchen. There were many “failed” attempts that my kids would take one bite and say they did not like it (my toughest critiques always!). However, after some trial and error I began to produce frozen desserts without dairy and with minimal to no added sugar that not only made them happy but I too enjoyed them so much more than conventional desserts. I am sharing with you 7 frozen treat recipes I love to make for my family on a hot day. Enjoy!
