45 Savory Frozen Desserts

From Hot Sauce Ice Cream to Chocolate Jalapeno Milkshakes

— August 19, 2015 — Lifestyle
Adventurous dessert eaters will be glad to know that there's a whole world of savory hot sauce ice cream, tempura shrimp parfaits and bacon-laden popsicles waiting for them.

Frozen desserts aren't just about sugar and spice anymore. Confectionery chefs and ice cream parlors all over the world are getting wildly imaginative, serving up delicious cold creations with ingredients like bone marrow, balsamic vinegar and basil. Because of its mild flavor and creamy texture, avocado is one of the most popular bases for unusual ice creams, popsicles and milk shakes. Asian-inspired flavors are also plentiful, with ginger, wasabi, soy sauce and miso providing alternatives to vanilla and chocolate.

For those who are ready for an entirely different dessert experience, there's only one question left: does hot sauce ice cream burn and freeze at the same time?
