Summer Cool Down Desserts

Summer Desserts

Hot Weather Dessert Recipes You’ll Love

Can you say “mmmm….?” Then get ready to yum it up with a hot weather dessert to cool down the summer. Rather than just naked ice cream, we dessert lovers at Taylor Morrison found some incredible recipes that can help bring down the hot temps. You can even recruit the kids to pitch in.

Easy As Pie

For something a bit adventurous, consider creating an ice cream pie. Start with a Frozen Malt Shop Ice Cream Pie and its super special ingredient: Whoppers malted milk candy. After that, try an equally simple Cookies and Cream Ice Cream Pie. Or, instead of pie go for cake with an irresistible Homemade Snickers Ice Cream Cake.


Which ‘Wich?

What’s not to love about an ice cream sandwich? The folks in Texas have some of the best ice cream sandwiches around, so for folks with homes in Austin or Houston, you know what we’re talking about.  Give these yummy creations a try: Mini Ice Cream Sandwiches, using your favorite cookies, and homemade Churro Ice Cream Sandwiches.


Float Your Boat

Treat your taste buds to a frosty float. If you own a new home in Sacramento, you may be aware that the famous A&W Root Beer float began right down the road in Lodi. But if you’re looking to go beyond the usual favorites, try out this simple Orange Creamsicle Float recipe that takes it up a notch with coffee creamer.


Drink Up

When you want something else to drink that’s ice-creamy and cool, try one of the recipes from 19 Delicious Drink Recipes, which offers up recipes for everything from Old Fashioned Mint Limeade and Watermelon Lemonade, to kid faves like Glow in the Dark Drinks to Frozen Hot Chocolate.

Party On

What is summer without at least one ice cream party? Put out some toppings, like sprinkles, marshmallows, fresh fruit, chopped nuts, you name it, and have a do-it-yourself sundae fest. Have a fun-in-the-sun pool party, complete with ice cream.


We couldn’t have come up with these deliciously cool ideas without our friend Stephanie from SomeWhatSimple. Follow along on her social media pages below, or with hastags #SomewhatSimpleHome and #SSBuildsWithTM.
