Hot summer days call for delicious, cold, and refreshing desserts. Here at Cabot we like to think outside the icebox and beyond the expected summer desserts. Some of our recipes, when using Cabot’s Greek-style yogurt, become not-so-guilty pleasures. And some of our desserts even use our award-winning cheddar! Cheddar in dessert you say?

Of course, hot summer days are just begging for ice cream recipes. We’ve got two amazing recipes that go beyond the same old chocolate and vanilla. Try our Caramel Apple Cheddar Ice Cream. Featuring Sharp Cheddar and caramel apple chunks, this ice cream is a cold refreshing twist on what is typically a fall comfort treat.
Here’s another cold version of a traditional summer fireside dessert. Cheddar S’mores Ice Cream. This decadent dessert includes graham crackers, chocolate and yes, cheddar. Trust us, we promise you’ll be asking for s’more.
If you don’t have an ice cream maker, or simply want a quick dessert, try our Apple Pie in a Bowl. Easy to prepare with ingredients you likely already have on-hand, this yummy treat uses our Greek-style yogurt for a lighter dessert but with all the flavor you crave.
The neighborhood kids will all be passing up the Ice Cream Truck once they get a taste of this next dessert. Creamy Frozen Fruit Snacks can be made with any frozen (or fresh) berries you have on-hand and sneak in a few grams of protein thanks to our Greek-style yogurt. And with only 36 calories each, we won’t tell if you have more than one.
This next cold dessert whips up in seconds and satisfies that sweet tooth without all the guilt. Our Cabot Greek Yogurt Chocolate Pudding is creamy, smooth and simply delicious. Use it as a dip for fresh fruit, pretzels, or just enjoy with a spoon.
Enjoy this next treat anytime of the day and feel good about it too! This Chocolate Peanut Butter Banana Smoothie features a wonderful blend of banana and Greek-style yogurt with a splash of chocolate and peanut butter. It’s a perfect poolside treat, or even an on-the-go cold breakfast.
So this summer, kick back and relax with some cold and delicious treats from Cabot! Impress your friends with some creative recipes, treat the kids to refreshing frozen desserts, and indulge in some lighter options too.
