15 Cold Summer Treats

15 cold summer treats, from popsicles to cocktails to ice cream! Get the recipes at cookieandkate.com

First things first! Cookie and Kate is hiring a local kitchen assistant. We’re in Kansas City. After five years of doing it all myself, I’m so excited to bring on some help. Details here! Also on that front, if you’ve noticed the site loading slowly lately, it should be fixed now. Growing pains. 🙂

As the temperatures near 100, I thought I’d share a few of my favorite cold treats. Cocktails , ice cream , frozen yogurt and popsicles galore! Most are fresh, fruity and naturally sweetened, too. What are you craving?
