dessertSummer is here, and there is no better time than now to pick up your ice cream spoons and dig in! It is no secret that Americans love this frozen dessert, and considering that June is the month where most ice cream is produced in the entire country, this is the best time to get a fresh scoop!

Ice cream changes every year, and 2017 isn't that different. Here are some of the best ice cream dessert trends to try out during the hot summer months!

More texture than ever before
We all know the typical ice cream toppings of sprinkles, crushed cookies, and hot fudge, but this year the trends are changing. Be prepared to find cotton candy, matcha, cheesecake bites, and cereal popping up at ice cream and frozen yogurt shops everywhere.

Savory flavors
Just because it is ice cream, doesn't mean that it has to be sweet! There are some new flavors on the horizon that give a whole new definition to ice cream like green tea, honey, strawberry and balsamic, and even red bean custard.

A whole new cone
Cones are getting a makeover, from small changes such as being dipped in chocolate, caramel, and strawberry sauce, to puffy waffle cones making an appearance. There are even cones shaped like fish out there, and some are even made from donuts and other delectable treats!

Milkshakes becoming bigger and better
Need some ice cream party supplies for your next shindig? Don't overlook the classic milkshake, which are getting bigger and more impressive. Milkshakes are being blended with cookies, brownies, and candies, and their glasses are coated with ice cream sandwiches, s'mores, lollipops, churros -- anything and everything! Even though these milkshakes may have had their start in gourmet restaurants, they are easy to make at home. All you need is a little creativity and an appetite to really make a magical milkshake.

What flavor are you most excited to try? From savory gelato to milkshakes that will give you the best sugar rush you've ever had, there are so many things to try this summer! So go out, and try all the desserts you can, because summer only comes once a year!
