Well, so it hasn't been THAT hot this summer. It's almost the middle of summer and we have barely cracked 90 degrees. Maybe once the whole summer. It doesn't matter, cool summer treats can be enjoyed no matter what the temperature!

According the the Old Farmers' Almanac and the McCormick spice people, "this summer will be a scorcher, with highest temperatures expected to hit in early- to mid- July through early-August." So maybe a hot summer WILL happen!

If it does, you will be ready! Here's some great treats to keep the whole family cool!

"No-Bake Cookie Dough Ice Cream Sandwich – Are you a cookie dough lover? Instead of using baked chocolate chip cookies to sandwich ice cream, this frozen treat is prepared with egg-free chocolate chip cookie dough."

"Pina Colada Spiced Mousse Minis – Layered with pineapple, toasted macadamia nuts, coconut milk mousse and crushed shortbread, this small-bite dessert has a tropical twist."


"Easy Fruity Shaved Ice – Color and flavor your homemade simple syrup to create fun frosty treats, perfect for beating the summer heat."

Thanks to the McCormick people for the great ideas! That Cookie Dough ice cream sandwich looks awesome!
