Ice Cream Madness: Creative Ways to Elevate the Classic Summer Treat


June 27, 2023

Ice cream is the absolute best summer treat. It cools you down, and is also really flavorful!

Let me ask you, have you ever looked at your store-bought goodness and thought of ways to "fancy it up?" Like that moment when you think your plain vanilla ice cream is just not worth it. So tag along to explore these 6 awesome ways to elevate your ice cream!


Enhance the flavor of your ice cream with tropical coconut goodness! ๐Ÿˆ How? Well, you could dip your popsicle or cone of ice cream into some scraped coconut, or even sprinkle some on top of it. It depends on how strong you want the flavor to be!

P.S. You could add some coconut to your ordinary vanilla, and make a one-of-a-kind coconut ice cream. How cool is that? Just grab your recipe from a random website, and you're good to go!


This might sound basic and ordinary. Like, everyone adds sprinkles to their ice cream, right? ๐Ÿง But no matter how simple it may sound or be, it's fun! Remember playing with them when you were younger?

And don't just go for the "normal" rainbow sprinkles— go for something unique, or maybe try making your ice cream sprinkles at home. It's worth the try!

Hot tip: combine a mix of chocolate or rainbow sprinkles, nonpareils, and colorful sanding sugar to make your dessert look extra special!

Peanut Butter

Try leveling up your classic treat with your favorite peanut butter.

First thinking of it, I admittedly found it quite weird, but it seems to be a heavenly snack for a hot summer or for dessert after dinner. Vanilla ice cream is thought to be the best, but who cares? Experiment and find your one! Peanut butter adds a beautiful nutty flavor to your ice cream, enhancing the flavor by the levels. Also, melt it for an even better experience. ๐Ÿ˜‰


Adding fresh fruit to your ice cream is super common and popular. And this makes your cooling snack healthier and also more tempting. Strawberries ๐Ÿ“ or just berries are considered to be the best and are a stereotypical image of ice cream with fruit, but it's your choice! For more ideas: kiwi, pineapple ๐Ÿ, orange ๐ŸŠ, lemon, coconuts, cherries, bananas ๐ŸŒ, and so on.

Barbecue Chips

Although this sounds weird, it's actually a really good combination. ๐Ÿ˜Œ Especially if you're someone who likes a combo of salt and sugar, this is heaven. They make an awesome topping thanks to their texture. Let the impulsive thoughts take over, and enjoy an unusual treat this summer! โ˜€


Nuts on your ice cream are the best hit. They're pretty popular, and I'm sure they're the perfect fit for any ice cream lover. Almonds, pistachios, and walnuts are definitely top-tier.

P.S. If you are allergic to any type of nut or, on the whole, allergic to nuts, you can substitute them with sunflower seeds flavored with salt or sugar!

Make sure to try these toppings and "elevators" out on your ice cream. Enjoy your summer! And props to the peeps who aren't on break right now, which includes me! ๐Ÿ˜ค๐Ÿ˜‹
