Summer’s here! (Well, almost.) We’ve been waiting months and months for this – sunshine, shorts, sandals, backyard barbecues…and, of course, the most perfectest time of year to enjoy your favorite Ben & Jerry’s flavors.
Don’t get us wrong, there’s no bad time to dive headfirst into a bowl of The Tonight Dough. But there’s something extra special about enjoying a cold bowl of ice cream when it’s a cool retreat from the summer heat. This season, we’ll be staying cool with a few extra special ice cream recipes created by our Flavor Gurus – and by “extra special”, we mean just for grown-ups*.
Cold Brew Coffee Soda Float
We’ve always said that coffee and ice cream are a match made in heaven. Perfect for an after dinner pick-me-up, this treat combines all the fun of a float with all the pizzazz of coffee and Kahlua. Recipe here.
Coconuts for Caramel Shake
Looking for a tropical vacation in a glass? This shake has it all: coconut, rum, caramel, and a stunning beachside sunset. Except not that last one, that would be impossible. Recipe here.
Brownie Batter Mudslide
For brownie lovers, this drink is the pinnacle of chocolate brownie euphoria. Go for it: climb to the pinnacle, take in the view. We guarantee it’s nothing but brownies as far as the eye can see. Recipe here.
Blondie Brown-ie Ale Pour-Over
Not to brag, but here in Vermont, we have more craft breweries per capita than any other state. That means that we take our brews pretty seriously. Sometimes we even pair them with our other favorite thing: ice cream (duh). Recipe here.
Orange Dream Beer Milkshake
Light, citrusy, and perfect for warm summer nights, this milkshake is tailor-made for watching the sunset with your special someone. After all, you’ll need someone there to hold your hand if you get an ice cream headache. Recipe here.
Cherry Cola Float
We like to think even the rock legend himself would think this is a pretty groovy way to enjoy Cherry Garcia. Pop on your favorite record, and float away down the golden road. Recipe here.
Buzzed Cinnamon Buns
Cinnamon Buns is always the flavor we turn to when we need comfort food. Sweet and cinnamon-y, it’s just like Mom’s fresh-out-of-the-oven version. Blend it up with your favorite spiced rum and you’ve got the perfect summer comfort shake. Recipe here.
