With summer well under way I thought it was appropriate to put together these 21 Awesome Frozen Desserts you could make for your family and friends. These will help cool everyone off in the summer heat! Homemade treats are always preferred to store bought in our house. The freshness of the ingredients makes all the difference.
The other plus is that you can make them as healthy as you like and it’s easy. Everyone is going to love any of these out of the park home run desserts. Whether it’s for game day, or any day!
These dessert recipes are simple to prepare but are not going to last long in your freezer. The benefits of making desserts yourself are clear. You control the amount of sugar, you can chose dairy or non-dairy milk, the options are up to you.
We love desserts in our home, and hey, what’s not to love! A little bit of sweetness brightens anyone’s day.

Lesson from the Past
I remember in grade school I was told by one of my teachers how to remember the spelling of dessert. I would get it confused with desert, which if you are writing a story can result in quite a bit of confusion!
He said that dessert has two “ss” and desert only has one “s”. That was because you always want 2 desserts, but you only ever want to cross the desert once! Great spelling tip that I have never forgotten!
Although we often think of frozen treats in the summer they certainly are not only a summer treat! There is nothing better than presenting a beautiful homemade frozen dessert after a wonderful dinner.
Even though we might be inside during the fall or winter that is still a great time to serve up some frozen treats. No only are they delicious but it just might remind everyone that summer is coming around again! It will be here again before you know it.
So make sure you bookmark this amazing collection of frozen recipes because you can create them year-round!
Ice Creams & Sorbet
Don’t be discouraged if you don’t have an ice cream maker. Although they are great units and we use ours all the time, you actually don’t need to churn your ice cream or sorbet.
In fact it is much easier to make a no churn version. You don’t have to make a custard like in the conventional method, you just put the ingredients together and pour it into a container and freeze. It’s really that simple!

In this collection of 21 Awesome Frozen Desserts we have included popsicles too! As a kid I was crazy for popsicles, or ice pops! It didn’t matter what kind or what flavor.
Even today I find myself reaching for an icy cool popsicle treat on a hot day. Not only does it help cool you down it, for me it brings back all those great memories of summers past!
I remember my mom making popsicles for us when I was growing up. The ones we had were usually very simple, made from fruit juice or even Kool-Aid.
As I have grown up I have found that my taste for popsicles has become just a little more refined. Don’t get me wrong I still love them as much as ever; I just realize that there is so much more you can do to a homemade popsicle!
Simply by adding fruit for example bumps the taste up. The best popsicles are the ones you make, with love and care. Your family, and especially your kids will love them! Start making wonderful memories for your children (adults too!) with these special ice treats!

Great list! Thanks for including my slushie!

So many great recipes. I love the mango one the best.
My fridge is full of rhubarb. I have never though to make ice cream with it. Great idea! It sounds heavenly.
You have so many good suggestions on this list I don’t know where I’d start! They all look good but I think it would be one of the ice cream pies.
