It’s getting hot out there. What’s the best way to beat the heat? With frozen desserts, of course! Whether you choose frozen yogurt, ice cream or even non-dairy “nice” cream, it’s the toppings that can really make your treat stand out. But candies won’t cut it—you need ingredients that do your body good. Here are ten simple, delicious and healthy ice cream and frozen yogurt toppings.
1. Banana, almond butter and cinnamon
A classic yogurt combination that also works great on frozen yogurt and ice cream. You can substitute any type of nut butter or even crushed nuts!
2. Mango and chili powder
This combo uses the kick of the chili powder to bring out the tropical sweetness of the mango.
3. Cinnamon-sautéed apple and granola
Cooking your apple with a bit of cinnamon and combining it with granola turns ice cream into an instant apple streusel.
4. Dark chocolate chips and peanut butter
For a decadent and rich flavor, combine these two classic ingredients.
5. Raspberries, ricotta cheese and honey
Take the creamy flavors of a cheesecake and put them right on top of plain yogurt!
6. Pineapple and shredded coconut
Bring the tropics to your bowl with tangy pineapple and nutty coconut.
7. Pistachios and honey
If you like the flavors of Greek baklava, or pistachio flavored ice cream, you’re sure to love this combo.
8. Cacao powder, maca powder and cacao nibs
These three superfoods come together to make a triple chocolate and antioxidant-packed dessert.
9. Maple syrup, granola and banana
These toppings are sure to remind you of your favorite Sunday morning banana pancakes!
10. Graham crackers and cacao nibs
This healthier take on s’mores goes great on top of a scoop of vanilla frozen yogurt.
