Summer is all about refreshing and bright flavors to combat warmer weather. While Canada and specifically the Greater Toronto Area isn’t considered to have a tropical summer we imagine, it is relatively warmer than the rest of the year. This means that it is time for some fresh, fruity treats to ensure we stay cool throughout summer. What better way to stay refreshed than indulging in berry-flavored desserts that are both delicious and refreshing?
While refreshing, berries are known to be high in antioxidants, vitamin C, and other elements, important to sustain a healthy immune system. Here are some of the best berry desserts you should try during the relatively warm summers in the GTA.
Strawberry Cracker Waffle
Many have heard by now that strawberries aren’t really “berries” and are actually considered a “false fruit”. Regardless, it is still a popular flavor and must not be ignored. Strawberries are perfect for a warm, sunny day – it is sweet and tangy, which makes for a refreshing treat. A great dessert would be a strawberry cracker waffle. Strawberries and crackers, topped on a waffle are a great way to enjoy a warmer day. While this dessert is refreshing, it is also filling to keep your energies up for a great day.
A milkshake on a warm, sunny day? Yes, please! Milkshakes are definitely a great summertime treat, regardless of flavor. It is refreshing, delicious, and also filling. The cold ice cream blended with berries and topped with fruits and whipped cream is just what is needed. The berries make for a tangy, refreshing flavor and are perfect to cool off in the sun.
Strawberry Eggless Cheesecake
While again, not a berry, it just had to make the list. A strawberry eggless cheesecake is another delicious and refreshing treat for a warm day. If you like cheesecakes and cannot have eggs for any reason, this is also a perfect option. The decadent cheesecake, its textural crust, and the strawberry flavor and topping are a great way to enjoy a summer day.
Blue Blizzard Rolled Ice Cream
A blue blizzard rolled ice cream is the ultimate summertime, berry-flavored dessert. Packed with blueberries – a true botanical berry – this treat is refreshing. The rolled ice cream begins as an ice cream base, poured onto a cold metal flat plate. Blueberries and other ingredients are then added to the ice cream base and then blended and mixed using spatulas. After a couple of blends and mixes, you’re left with a creamy, refreshing delicious treat that is flattened and rolled out, ready to serve.
This berry-flavored dessert isn’t just refreshing, it is also a fun experience as the ice cream maker prepares and serves this in front of you. A fun and refreshing treat for the summer!
