January Sweetness of New Zealand Round-Up

Follow Me on Pinterest

There are sweet reasons of Summer in New Zealand. One of them is that we get to eat as so much delicious as many different flavour of ice cream available everywhere in every corner of this Kiwi land. The option is enormous. It's just like pointing your finger at one kind of ingredients, and voila! the next thing you know there it is churning in your ice cream machine, ready to end your Summer meal.

That is proven by some fellow Kiwi bloggers who had sent me entries of ice cream as to beat Summer heat for Sweet New Zealand. Mairi has her Cardamom Ice Cream, then Sue with her Roasted Apricot Gelato, Lesley with her Creamy Orange Ice Blocks, and I am here with my Black Dorris Plum Ice Cream that I make every year using our homegrown plums and my recipe here. Last but not least, to tell the truth how hot New Zealand is at the moment, there is Pineapple, Coconut and Mint Ice Pops from Alli to quench the thirst of beach babes. Yay!

Some cool and delicious fruity desserts are marching sweetly for Summer feast below! Some lovely cookies and fruity cakes are on the menu as well. And that delicious Lemon and Mascarpone Meringue Roll that Monique baked to name a few is really something I'd die for. I just love that combination of meringue and lemon curd. There are also beautiful biscuits and cake slices to accompany coffee or tea as you may will see on an array of goodies below, so take your pick.

There is always a way to celebrate this fruity season and everyone has got her best entries served. I am just so happy to receive and enjoy every one of them. Thank you to all my fellow Kiwi bloggers for your lovely goodies. Enjoy your Summer.

Some lovely blog posts to catch up on here, plus I meant to make your plum ice cream last year (I have plums on the tree here) but didn't so I will really have to give it a go. Thanks for hosting.
