When it comes to summer desserts, there’s only a few options in my household 1.) Ice Cream, 2.) Another Flavor of Ice Cream, 3.) Third Time’s The Charm For This Ice Cream Idea, or 4.) Something Grilled. Our obsession with an all-foods-must-be-grilled lifestyle in the summer means that if we want a sweet treat that’s NOT ice cream, grilled fruit is likely what we’re going to choose. Stone fruits like peaches and plums are a few of my favorites.
While grilled peaches are nice topped with even more ice cream, another option is to make a quick glaze akin to what you would top a cinnamon roll with. If you have some fresh mint around, even better.
Speaking of that glaze: If you’re using “vanilla” as a synonym for “boring,” you’re using it wrong. In fact, vanilla is a classic flavor with over 170 notes, so it’s anything but boring to me! It’s time to take back vanilla with Coffee-mate Classic Vanilla and French Vanilla. The subtle flavors and aromas are, of course, the perfect complement to the boldness of coffee. They’re also convenient for quick and easy summer dessert recipes like this one. Click here to locate Coffee-mate in a store near you, and visit Coffee-mate for more delicious recipes!
