We’re in PEAK summer mode around here! That means we’re doing all we can to stay cool – starting with some of our favorite ice cream desserts. If you have as much trouble as we do justifying turning on the oven or slaving over a hot stove, we must suggest a lot of grilling out, followed by a smattering of one of these sweet treats.

Chocolate Cheesecake No-Churn Ice Cream

It’s a thick, cream cheese batter that is laced with Rodelle Gourmet Baking Cocoa and then layered with chocolate sauce and salty graham cracker crumbs.The first thing we do is make a chocolate base out of high-fat cocoa powder. Rodelle Organic Cocoa Powder is Dutch-processed and makes this recipe as creamy as ever without having to make a traditional ganache. The sauce is equal parts cocoa powder and coconut oil with a dash of honey for sweetness. Have you ever heard of such a thing? Cocoa powder chocolate sauce? Well, you have now. We then whip, whip, whip the cream cheese and the whipped cream together until we reach suuuuuper fluffy, stiff peaks. We then fold in the sweetened condensed milk and half of the prepared chocolate sauce.Honestly, how easy was that? It doesn’t get much better. We toss the graham cracker crumbs with coconut oil and a little bit of salt to bring out the flavor, and there we have it, all three components make this fun, no-churn sensation.Make Chocolate Cheesecake No-Churn Ice Cream! >

Vegan Peanut Butter Fudgesicles

Chocolate peanut butter lovers rejoice! This vegan fudgesicle recipe takes just a few healthyish ingredients: coconut milk, peanut butter, maple syrup, cocoa powder, and vanilla. A hit of salt and chopped peanut butter cups take them over the top.

These fudgesicles come together quickly and easily if you have a blender and a popsicle mold. Despite being made with vegan ingredients and natural sweetener, these fudgesicles still taste rich and decadent. The flavors of maple and coconut take a backseat to rich cocoa, peanut butter, vanilla, and a nice edge of salt. No one will ever guess that they’re made with nourishing ingredients.
