Our Ultimate Guide to Refreshing Treats in Brisbane
February 12, 2018
With vanilla custard ice cream, lemon curd, raspberries, cheesecake and graham crumble, it’s zingy, refreshing and downright yum.
Brisbane has seen some absolute scorchers over the past few days. And knowing the Sunshine State, we’re probably in for at least another month of boiling hot weather. If you’re stuck in the heat, head to the air con at Westfield Chermside and get your hands on one of these icy, refreshing treats.
Sundaes at Savour
Savour is our resident patisserie serving up modern takes on French classics. Most recently, they’ve turned their attention to making the most decadent éclair sundaes. With silky smooth soft serve, an entire éclair and an elaborate selection of toppings, these sundaes mean business. They’re the perfect sweet treats to cool down with.
Melonberry Sorbet at Gelatissimo
The latest flavour to hit Gelatissimo is a refreshing combination of watermelon and strawberry – aptly named ‘melonberry’. Grab a scoop after dinner or take home an entire tub to get you through the next couple of balmy Summer nights.
Lemon Meringue Bowl at Acai Brothers
Much like a fair few of Acai Brothers’ creations, their lemon meringue bowl is out of this world. It gets its distinct lemon meringue flavour from a combination of vanilla protein and lemon essential oil. And we think this is one of the cleverest combinations in the acai bowl world. Make sure you put this one on your bucket list before Winter.
Frozen OJ at Fiery Deli
As well as a punchy selection of cocktails, Fiery Deli also serve up a non-alcoholic orange juice slushie. It brings back all sorts of childhood nostalgia of orange juice icy poles, and it’s great for when you’re looking for healthy ways of beating the heat.
Affogato at Casa Cibo
At Casa Cibo, high-quality ingredients are of the utmost importance. So when you order a traditional Italian affogato, you can be sure you’re getting the best of the best. Bold coffee and creamy vanilla gelato combine to make a flavoursome, delicious treat. You can also add a shot of liqueur if you like your affogatos particularly strong.
Passion Punch at Boost
This Boost smoothie screams tropical goodness. It’s a refreshing mixture of passionfruit, coconut, mango, banana, kiwi fruit and plenty of ice. The best part? It’s dairy free, gluten free and comes in at less than 200 calories. That means we can have two, yes?
Lemon Raspberry Concrete at Betty’s
While there are plenty of scrumptious frozen custard flavours at Betty’s Burgers, the lemon raspberry cheesecake is our favourite in Summer. With vanilla custard ice cream, lemon curd, lemon zest, raspberries, New York cheesecake and graham crumble, it’s zingy, refreshing and downright yum.
Cocktails at Tapworks
Need something stronger to survive these face-melting afternoons? Tapworks have a great selection of ice cold cocktails up for grabs. And on Thursdays, every single one of their classic cocktails costs just $12. We’ll probably be there for after-work drinks every Thursday from now until May.
