Sweet Summer Treats

Summer may feel a little different this year. While large gatherings with friends and loved ones may have to be put on the back burner, we can all still indulge in the sweetness of the season. Here are a few fabulous chilled dessert recipes to help you and your family savour the true flavour of summer.

Pickled Gingery Plums and Oranges

Take your taste buds on a summer adventure with these Pickled Gingery Plums and Oranges. It's an incredible balance of bold flavours in perfect harmony. The refreshing sweetness of the chilled plums and tart oranges, the warm spiciness of ginger rounded out by the cold, creamy sweetness of vanilla ice cream. It's all here

Strawberry Pretzel Pie

Is there anything that screams 'summertime' more than the flavour of fresh strawberries?! You can enjoy them all on their own, but when you're looking to celebrate and elevate the taste of the season, you can't go wrong with this Strawberry Pretzel Pie. It's perfectly sweet and a little bit salty. A cool and creamy no-bake summer treat that won't heat things up in your kitchen. It is also super easy to make. The hardest part is waiting for it to chill in the refrigerator for 4 to 6 hours. 

Roasted Berry and Honey Yogurt Popsicles

These Roasted Berry and Honey Yogurt Popsicles make a perfect summer treat that is almost too pretty to eat! The smooth, sweet and creamy base of Greek yogurt and honey is complemented perfectly by roasted summer berries like raspberries, blueberries and blackberries. 

Amaretto Peach Cobbler 

The short and sweet peach season is as fleeting and precious as summer itself. There may be nothing better than biting into a perfectly ripe peach and letting the juices drip down your chin -- unless you have perfectly ripe peaches soaked in their own juices with a splash of amaretto liqueur! This recipe is easy for anyone to enjoy as it can be made vegan and grain-free. Don't forget the vegan ice cream!

We hope these refreshing treats help to make your summer as sweet as can be.
