Cool Down with these 4 Chilled Treats


Summer is in full swing and the season’s hottest temperatures are on the rise. There is something refreshing about enjoying a chilled sweet treat on a hot summer’s day. Popsicles, ice cream and even smoothies offer many opportunities for different flavors. Pair these chilled goodies with sorghum and you’re in for a special treat. Whole grain sorghum can add nutrients and a nice texture when blended into smoothies and ice pops. Sorghum syrup can also add a subtle, natural sweetness to an array of frozen treats. We’ve gathered seven chilled sorghum treats to help you beat the summer heat.
