When you’ve got friends and family coming over for a
summer gathering, don’t slave over a hot pudding – make one of our
frozen desserts like ice cream cake, parfait or even a chilled tiramisu,
instead. Planning a morning in the kitchen with the kids? Why not make
lollies, frozen yogurt or even fruits-on-a-stick together? Healthy and
delicious – as well as fun to make.
If you’re an ice cream or lolly fan, you’re going to love our collection of frozen treats. Click through to see them all…First on the list is this easy lemon ice cream cake. Cake AND ice cream in one dessert – what’s not too love? This heavenly pud has a crumbly biscuit base and a lemony top. Make it ahead of time.
Frozen yogurt is lower in cals, fat and sugar than most ice creams, plus the probiotics in natural yogurt make it really good for you. Learn how to make your own with our handy recipe for strawberry fro-yo.
This cake has certainly got the ‘wow’ factor. Made with raspberry, chocolate and vanilla ice cream, this ice box cake is sure to impress your friends and family in the summer months.
Got some chocolate biscuits? Got some ice cream? Then you’re ready to make an ice cream sarnie. Make this ultra-easy dessert fancy enough for dinner with friends by sprinkling coconut over the top.
Our mummy blogger Anneliese created these delicious banana pops and they’ve been a big hit with goodtoknow users! You don’t even need lolly makers, just little yogurt pots and lolly sticks.
These chocolates conceal a hidden ice cream centre. Serve them up at your next family party – everyone will love them, and they’re easier to make than you might think.
Making lollies with the kids is an ideal school holiday activity – it’s cheap, fun and you don’t have to go anywhere further than the garden to eat them! Our cherry lollies make the most of the summer fruit.
Parfaits are an elegant ice cream dessert which you chill in a tin so you can cut it into neat slices. They’re also ideal for making ahead of time, so make our forest fruits parfait the night before you have friends over.
This elegant pud is perfect for family gatherings and special meals together. Serve scoops of homemade coffee ice cream on top of individual pavlovas. (Or you can cheat and use meringue nests and bought ice cream – we won’t tell!)
This has to be the healthiest frozen treat going – fruit on sticks! These tropical fruit rockets are made with different types of melon but you could also try grapes or mango chunks.
We love milky lollies – they’re almost like ice cream but not quite as naughty. Try making your own – all you need is yogurt, strawberries and lolly moulds.

Sweet watermelon and tart lime make a winning flavour combination. They’re a little tricker than some lolly recipes so if you’re making them with the kids, you can make the sugar syrup and get them to help straining the fruit pulp and pouring it into the lolly moulds.
Celeb chef Bill Granger is known for his simple but delicious recipes. We love his idea for a cheat’s tiramisu which layers up vanilla ice cream with sponge fingers, dark chocolate, coffee and Kahlua.
This naughty sundae is definitely one for special occasions rather than every day. Phil’s riff on banoffee pie features ice cream, caramel sauce, bananas, nuts, biscuit bits AND cream.

The only word for this dessert is… wow! Scoops of choc-chip, peanut butter and praline ice cream are served up with – wait for it – pretzel pieces, peanut butter cups, peanuts, marshmallows and chocolate fudge sauce. One for special occasions!
