We love summer in our house. Sunbathing on the beach, mini golfing, exploring nature, and the list goes on. One of our favorite things to do is have all of our friends and family over for a big old-fashioned cookout. Of course, you can’t have a summer cookout without the ultimate summer dessert: sundaes. And what’s better than a sundae? A dairy-free sundae bar!
My friends over at friends at Evite®, in partnership with So Delicious® Dairy Free, are sponsoring this post to share fun ways to create the perfect dairy-free sundae bar for your next summer cookout. From drool-worthy flavors, to sweet finishing touches, we’ve got everything you need to knock your guests’ socks off.
We go through quite a bit of So Delicious® Dairy Free Frozen Dessert in our house, and for good reason. This stuff is delicious. Creamy and flavorful, these frozen desserts impress even the greatest of dairy lovers. They’re the perfect base for sundaes, and have plenty of flavors to choose from. Offer one or two of the basic flavors in your sundae bar, such as chocolate, vanilla, or strawberry, in addition to a few of the more “grown-up” flavors. Salted Caramel Cluster, Cappuccino, and Dark Chocolate Truffle are personal favorites, and are guaranteed to wow your guests.
When assembling your sundae bar, be sure to include bowls, spoons, cones, ice cream scoops, serving spoons for toppings, and napkins. Disposable items are perfectly acceptable, and you can dress them up by choosing fun, summer patterns and colors. Present your spoons in something fun, like these cute little mason jars with a simple tied bow:
Toppings are a necessity, and you’ll want to offer a variety of them. Be sure to include allergy friendly, gluten-free, and vegan options for your guests. My little guy loves topping his sundaes with fresh fruit, crushed cookies, and a big, soft dollop of So Delicious® Dairy Free CocoWhip. The adults will love nuts, dairy-free chocolate chips, and vegan chocolate, caramel, or peanut butter sauce.
Good gluten-free options to include are brownies and big, chewy cookies. You’ll also want to have gluten-free cones on hand to offer to your guests. Of course, don’t forget the cherries!
With these few tips and a variety of bowls, cones, and cookies, your guests will have some pretty amazing options to create their own special treat. You’ll satisfy the cone lover:
The banana split / sundae lover:
The cookie sandwich lover:
There’s something for everyone’s sweet tooth, and this dairy-free sundae bar is guaranteed to be a great hit.
