10 Ice Cold Recipes for Instant Cool

Keep cool and carry on with 10 ice cold recipes that will quench any thirst and keep the sweat away

Whether you are a believer or denier of climate change, you have got to admit - it’s getting pretty warm these days, and there is only so much ice-cream and popsicle sticks one can take! Don’t sweat it because we're coming to your rescue with 10 easy ice cold recipes that will quench any thirst and keep you cool. 

1. One-Pot Apple, Osmanthus, and Cranberry Dessert Soup

Off to a sweet start. This one's a refreshing dessert soup for anytime. Chock full of apples and dried cranberries for a plump pink sparkle, the good fruit adds tartness and texture to an otherwise feather-like soup. But that's not all. Mellow yellow osmanthus leaves a lingering floral scent in this super easy one-pot boil of Apple, Osmanthus and Cranberries. Chill the bowl and after the soup's done, chill it too for a wonderful cool dessert. 

2. Avocado Gula Melaka Shake

Avocado is the fruit of the health-conscious millennials and it’s easy to see why - ounce for ounce, it is the richest in fiber, folate, potassium, vitamin E, and magnesium among all fruits. Not to mention the subtle flavours - soft and creamy, with a pleasant aftertaste - that goes quite perfectly on its own with some salt, smashed on toast or as part of a salad. Here we have an option with an Avocado Shake with an Asian twist, perfect for a warm sunny day. We do warn you - this is highly addictive so you might find yourselves slurping your first glass fast and asking for seconds.

3. Coconut Milk and Corn Boba

A versatile dessert that can be served hot and cold; drank from a cup or sipped from a bowl, the Coconut Milk with Corn and Boba is a tasty treat for the young and old. Enjoy the creaminess of the coconut with the delightful sweetness of corn and sago pearls. Best served with a touch of mint leaves and sesame seeds!

4. Es Teler

As easy as it looks. Just slice and stack- a refreshing icy cocktail of avocado, jackfruit and coconut for a hot day. The Indonesian classic dessert is easily made with a variety of sliced fruit, including Southeast Asia's many tropical fruits like papaya and mangoes for sweetness and colour. Want it colder for longer? Chill the glasses ahead. 

5. Matcha Tiramisu

The East meets West in a lovely marriage with this tasty dessert - the Matcha Tiramisu! This recipe gives you the creamy and richness of tiramisu with a burst of bold matcha flavour. You will be hard-pressed to miss the subtle sweetness of red bean and the milk-soaked ladyfingers. Best served in individual glasses, cold!

6. Honeydew Sago Pomelo

There’s nothing quite as satisfying as an ice-cold bowl of Honeydew Sago Pomelo on a hot summer’s day, and you will see why! Balls of cold melon, sago and pomelo floating in a cooled mixture of honeydew and evaporated milk that is both sweet yet incredibly refreshing. Not into Honeydew? It can be replaced with durian, jackfruit or mango.

7. One-Bowl No-Churn Five Spice and Orange Ice Cream

One can never resist dessert and definitely not ice cream. Try making your own ice cream, but this time, try using our One-Bowl No-Churn Five Spice and Orange Ice Cream recipe. It's a unique Asian dessert that is especially suitable for those who don't have a sweet tooth. The addition of five-spice powder balances out the sweetness, yet at the same time, it is not overpowering. Given that this entire recipe can be completed with the help of one bowl, it is perfect for everyone!

8. Sago Pudding with Gula Melaka

Here’s a dessert that is not only interesting in taste and texture, but so easy to make that you can make it your go-to dessert every week. Four ingredients are all you need (and that includes water!) and most of the work is delegated to the stove and refrigerator. The key ingredient for this recipe is the gula melaka - cubes of palm sugar melted into a sticky dark brown sauce.

9. Thai Iced Tea

Creamy and sweet with a tinge of bitterness and spice, the Thai Iced Tea is a delicious and refreshing drink that is popular in its motherland (Thailand) and neighbouring countries in Southeast Asia. Its interesting flavor is created from steeping a variety of spices that one wouldn’t normally put in tea – star anise, cardamom, clove and cinnamon stick. P.S. Don’t worry if you do not have all the spices, it will still turn out quite delicious!

10. Ube Mochi

As with most things Japanese, this dish has the cutest of names - Mochi! Mochi is a traditional rice cake that is typically steamed and pounded intensively to give a sticky consistency. Make this chewy delight with a sweet purple yam twist, all ready to impress your family and friends! Put in the chiller first to sink your teeth into a cool soft, chewy ball.
