These Two-Ingredient Frozen Desserts Are the Simplest Treats Ever
When the weather gets hot, there’s nothing that sounds better than a decadent scoop of ice cream or a refreshing ice pop. But running out to the store for ingredients can spoil the fun of summertime plans. Instead, try one of these super simple two-ingredient frozen desserts. From fruity sorbet to irresistibly rich ice cream, you're sure to cool down with one of these tasty treats.
2-Ingredient Ice Cream
Heavy whipping cream and sweetened condensed milk make the creamy base for this ice cream. If you're craving a certain flavor, feel free to throw extra ingredients — such as sliced strawberries or chocolate chips — into the mix.
Nutella®-Coconut Fudge Pops
Nutty, chocolatey, and oh so decadent, you'll never go back to store-bought fudge pops again after making this recipe. Creamy Nutella is blended with canned coconut cream before getting poured into ice-pop molds. The hardest part of this recipe is being patient enough for them to freeze solid.
Easy Pineapple Sorbet
Orange juice and frozen pineapple magically transform into a tropical sorbet when blended together. "This was wonderful and so fast and easy," says reviewer Bren. "The flavors blended nicely and neither overpowered the other."
Peanut Butter Banana Ice Cream
Finally, a use for frozen bananas besides smoothies! Tuck a few away in your freezer so they'll always be ready to get blended up with peanut butter for a cool treat. And since this ice cream is only made with fruit and nut butter, it's a relatively healthy recipe to satisfy your sweet tooth.
Frozen fruit is transformed into a sweet sorbet with the help of a food processor or blender. This recipe suggests using strawberries and bananas, but you can get creative with choices like blueberries, pineapple, mango, and more.
Cotton Candy® Grape Lemonade Ice Pops
Fast and Easy Creamy Ice Cream
Who knew that half-and-half and instant pudding mix were key to making rich ice cream at home? "Using only two ingredients, this ice cream recipe consistently produces thick, creamy ice cream," says recipe creator Andi. "It can be made fat-free or sugar free in any flavor available in a pudding mix."
Chocolate Banana Pops
There's no need for ice-pop molds with this easy recipe. Simply halve a few bananas, stick them in the freezer, and coat each with a dreamy layer of dark chocolate. If you’ve got extra ingredients on hand, consider rolling the banana pops in nuts, seeds, or shredded coconut for more texture.
2-Ingredient Strawberry Sorbet
Just creamy enough to straddle the line between ice cream and sorbet, this delicious dessert is begging to be served up in waffle cones. Frozen strawberries are blended together with sweetened condensed milk, then placed in the freezer to set for a few hours.
