16 Summertime Frozen Dessert Recipes

Gelato & mud pie to granita & popsicles, there’s a delectable frozen treat from everyone!

Summertime Frozen DessertsI don’t complain about too many things — but, I totally own that I complain about my discomfort when I’m too hot.  And my idea about what’s “too hot”, might be about 10 degrees cooler than yours.  (It’s about 20 degrees cooler than what my husband considers too hot.  He wears a ski hat and jacket in the house when I have the air on. No joke!)  Don’t get me wrong, I love a bright sunny day.  Who doesn’t!?  It’s just that when it’s quite hot, I prefer to be by a large body of water.  In a bathing suit and ready to enter to cool off at any given moment.  😉

(If my husband is reading this, he’s definitely thinking, “wait, she complains about way more than the heat!”)

There’s nothing I love more than cooling off with a frozen dessert on a hot  — or warmish — summer night.  So since I know I’m not the only one who feels this way, and I know it’s a whole lot hotter in many other parts of the country, I’m super happy to share some of my favorites with you.
