Mint and chocolate cheese icecream lollies are excellent and unusual dessert ideal for serving to the guests. It could be a great dessert surprise. The frozen whipped topping and cream cheese allow the lollies to maintain a slight softness – almost like a fudgesicle. Combine that winning texture with the crunch of Magic Shell and the cool from chopped up mint chocolate cookies and you have a dessert to remember!

Jasmine ice cream

Jasmine ice cream

This jasmine ice cream will surprise everyone with its distinctive flavour. If you want the taste of your ice cream to be stronger feel free to add a few drops of jasmine syrup (if available in your shops). Widely cultivated for its flowers, jasmine is enjoyed in the garden, as a house plant, and as cut flowers. The flowers are worn by women in their hair in southern and southeast Asia. The delicate jasmine flower opens only at night and may be plucked in the morning when the tiny petals are tightly closed, then stored in a cool place until night. The petals begin to open between six and eight in the evening, as the temperature lowers.

Snowman ice cream

Snowman ice cream is a great winter fun – imagine your child’s friends around for the afternoon play, or a New Year’s Eve  or birthday party, and you serve the beautiful shots of ice cream decorated as a snowman.  You can feel free to decorate your snowmen as ever you want (maybe to personalize each of them). This is an easy-making dessert which is more than anything a great fun, so there are no rules. 

Strawberry and peach popsicle

Strawberry and peach popsicle

Popsicle is a popular brand of ice pop in the United States and Canada and became a genericized trademark for any type of ice pop due to its popularity. The first ice pop was created by accident in 1905 when 11-year-old Frank Epperson left a glass of homemade soda on his porch on a very cold San Francisco night. The next morning he went to go get the soda and it was frozen. Using the stirring stick that he had also left in the glass, he pulled it out and tried it. “Popsicle” is a trademark held by Unilever. Also it is very easy to find different popsicle molds. Strawberries and peaches are amazing out of hand. They taste even better with a splash of coconut milk.

Cardamom and coffee ice-cream

Coffee beans grow on small evergreen tropical trees. The two main types of bean are Arabica and Robusta. Arabica grows at high altitudes and generally makes the best coffee; Robusta is much hardier, grows at lower altitudes and produces greater quantities of lower-grade coffee that are much used in coffee blends and instant coffee. Coffee beans have particular characteristics depending on their country of origin. Brazil is the world’s largest producer and exporter of coffee, but more than 40 countries export coffee beans. Broadly speaking, coffee production divides into three areas. The Caribbean, Central and South America produce coffees with good balance and a smooth, elegant taste. East Africa and Arabia produce coffees with a more pronounced acidity and fruitiness. Coffee from South-East Asia, India and the Pacific tends to be full-bodied and rich with a relatively low acidity.
