Enjoying Frozen Treats in the Colder Months

Electro Freeze soft serve ice cream machine

Who says you can’t enjoy an ice cream in the winter? For too long, we’ve been told that you should only enjoy frozen treats when the weather is warm. With that claim, we limit favorite ice creams, slushies, shakes and frozen yogurts to a mere 5 months of enjoyment.

While there is something to be said about enjoying frozen treats when it’s warm out, we do not have to stash these goodies away during the colder months. Frozen treats act as a perfect side for some of fall and winter’s most popular desserts. Traditional holiday pies can be complimented with ice cream or frozen yogurt.  The combination of the warm pie and the cold treat is delicious and creates a nostalgia for holidays past.

Frozen treats can be a great way to upgrade your winter menu as well. Incorporate winter favorites like pumpkin and peppermint into your frozen treats to add variety and interest to your dessert menu.

If you take a little more convincing to enjoy your frozen treats in the winter, doctors even recommend it! Winter usually means cold and flu season in many areas of the country. While symptoms of the cold and flu vary, it’s not uncommon for one to suffer from a sore throat. A study by the University of Michigan found that a great way to relieve a sore throat is through enjoying ice cream and other cold snacks. The cold and soft nature of the treat can provide a soothing sensation to the throat, providing comfort in the recovery process.

Whatever your reason for enjoying frozen treats in the colder months, our Electro Freeze machines can provide your business with these goodies year-round. Contact us today, and our team will answer any questions you may have.
