Fabulous Frozen Desserts to Beat the Heat

June 1, 2014

The summer is all about backyard barbecues, pool parties and frozen treats.  Ice cream is usually my go to but there are some many fabulous frozen desserts that also deserve a shout out.  Depending on the occasion, I'll whip up a quick batch of blackberry paletas for the kids (and a boozy batch for the adults) or spend several hours creating a decadent chocolate semifreddo.  These delicious recipes will help you beat the heat all summer long.
