3 Cold Treats I Wish I Were Enjoying Right Now

It’s been a while since my last post here.  That is partially due to the mighty bitch slap that temperatures near and above 100 degrees have spent the past couple of weeks laying down upon my neck of the woods (it’s been too hot to do much of anything around the home, much less venture outside in search of decent eats).  It is also partially due to family issues that are resolving themselves as I type.  At any rate, I thought I’d devote this post to three cold treats I’d rather be enjoying right now instead of this jug of chilled white wine (Hey, a man’s gotta stay cool by any means necessary, right?)

Creme De Gelo Do Abacate This frozen dessert of Brazilian origin uses sweetened avocado as its basis and looks simple for anyone to prepare at home.  Recipes4us.co.uk shares a how-to that offers up ingredient measurements by weight as well as volume.  Can’t wait to try it and if it tastes as good as I think it will, I’ll probably write it a flowery sonnet afterward.

Frrrozen Hot Chocolate  For decades, New York City restaurant Serendipity 3 has served up this bit of tasty divinity that is exactly what it sounds like: a cold, frothy dessert made using chilled hot chocolate and topped with shaved chocolate and whipped cream.  I won’t go into detail about exactly what I’d be willing to do in exchange for having an extra large serving of this magically materialize before me right now, but suffice it to say, it’s a lot, and some of it, I’m less than proud of.

Dolido Ice Bars TheRobotChef.com says of these milky frozen treats that one is never enough.  Never having tasted this brand myself, I was doubly pleased to learn that Dolido pops can be found at Korean supermarkets like H-Mart. Available in flavors like melon, red bean, and green tea among others, they look and sound worth braving the heat for, and will likely draw me to my local Korean grocer’s freezer aisle before I post again.

All right. I’ve talked myself into it; I’m off to the supermarket.
