Who doesn’t like ice cream? Nothing can quite compare to the feeling of cold gentleness melting in your mouth on a hot summer day. Some people like to eat it all year round and we can’t blame them! Chefs all over the world come up with new bizarre ice cream recipes every day, trying to improve the already perfect dessert. Some of them are more successful, others are less so, but in the end we, mere consumers, have a unique ability to try some of the yummiest ice creams that have ever existed. Here are 10 delicious new trends you should definitely try this summer.
Ice Cream Tacos
Taco lovers will definitely appreciate this new ice cream invention. Sweet Cup, a Californian ice cream shop, has come up with a nifty idea to mimic the beloved taco look, but use ice cream instead. Don’t worry, your dessert won’t have minced beef all over it, but what you will have is ice cream with unique flavors packed into rounded waffle cones. Chocolate syrup, sprinkles, fizzy sweets and edible gold embellishments only add to the taste.
This traditional Japanese dessert is more than 100 years old. It was first served in Kanagawa prefecture back in 1869 and has remained one of the most popular summer treats since then. Kakigori is made with shaved ice and various syrups. It can taste like cherry, strawberry, green tea, melon, grape, sweet plum, or simply sweet without any flavor at all. Sometimes condensed milk is used to make it a bit sweeter.
i-Creamy Artisan Gelato is one of those companies that aren’t afraid to experiment with Asian flavors or create crazy new recipes. Yet it is not their award-winning flavors that set i-Creamy apart from the rest of ice cream shops – it’s their beautiful gelato flowers! Ice cream has never looked so gorgeous and while taste is definitely important, this artsy form definitely makes i-Creamy desserts even more impressive.
Macaroon Ice Cream Sandwiches
The classic macaroon recipe is kind of perfect on its own, but Bay Area coffee shops went even further and added ice cream to it. Does it taste good? You bet! According to Jessica Yadegaran, a food journalist, it tastes like heaven on earth. Creamy dairy makes the traditional macaroon dessert even gentler and goes really well with a hot cup of coffee.
