6 Cool Treats to Beat the Heat

Categories: Recipe Roundup, Summer

When the summer heat is fierce, there’s nothing like chilled, delicious treats to help you keep your cool! Give one of these a try the next time you craving something sweet and refreshing! 

1. A Stacked Sundae 

Treats: Ice Cream Sundae

Sundaes are fun to build and the best part about them is they’re completely customizable! Pick up some Farm Boy Ice Cream or Farm Boy™ Gelato and top them with everything your heart desires (Psst – crumbled Farm Boy™ Crispy Cookies are amazing on ice cream).

Try this: For your next celebration, try putting together a build-your-own sundae bar! Keep one or a few ice cream flavours in your freezer and set out some bowls with different toppings (peanuts, cookie, sprinkles, gummies, fresh fruit, etc.). Line up some Farm Boy™ Dessert Sauces and spoons and ta-da! They’re treats guests can tailor to their liking and be creative with! 

2. A Fresh Cocktail or Mocktail 

Fresh Fruit Mocktail

In a glass, pour some of our Sparkling Beverage over ice, add muddled fresh fruit and mint, and top with our Organic Flavoured Sparkling Water for a mojito-inspired mocktail. Add a splash of your favourite spirit to turn it into the real thing!

3. A Classic Ice Cream Float

Treats: Ice Cream Floats

This fun diner classic is underrated! Load a glass with a few scoops of vanilla ice cream and pour root beer over top for a classic root beer float. Or, try our Chef’s recipe for a Sparkling Strawberry Ice Cream Float.

4. A Sweet Popsicle

Popsicle Treats

Make your own homemade popsicles by blending frozen fruit, honey or your sugar of choice, Farm Boy™ Organic Coconut Cream, and one of our Organic Juices. Fill some homemade popsicle moulds with your fruity base and insert your popsicle sticks into each mould. Freeze for a yummy treat the whole family will enjoy! This is a fun summer activity for kiddos, too! 

For quick and easy popsicles, try Farm Boy™ Sorbet (like Watermelon, Lemon Basil, or Strawberry Lemonade) as your base! 

5. A Thick Ice Cream Sandwich

Ice cream sandwiches

Make your own by sandwiching some slightly thawed Farm Boy™ Ice Cream between two Farm Boy™ Chocolate Chip Cookies. Then place them on a baking sheet and stick them in the freezer until the ice cream is firm. 

Or, try an Italian-inspired version with our Farm Boy™ Gelato! Slice a warm brioche bun (or try a Croissant Bun from our Bake Shop) down the center, stopping about 3/4 of the way through so that the two halves are still attached. Fill with some scoops of your favourite gelato flavour and enjoy!

If you’re looking for a quick and easy option, pick up some of our Farm Boy™ Chocolate Chip Ice Cream Sandwiches – they come in gluten-free, too! 

6. A Cold & Fruity Smoothie

How ’bout an ice-cold, fruity smoothie to start your morning? Smoothies are a great, tasty way to pack in nutrients that will help fuel you during your day! Choose from our frozen fruit varieties like Mango, Berry Blend, and Pineapple Chunks for the base of your smoothie. Then, blend with other ingredients like milk or our fresh Organic Orange Juice, a scoop of Farm Boy™ Vanilla Nutritional Shake, nut butter, or even a handful of spinach! 

Pro Tip: Add 1/4 – 1/2 an avocado to your smoothie for some healthy fat and to make your smoothie ultra creamy!
