by ‐ Tags: links, green living

TGIF! Here at WegoWise our team enjoys collaborating and putting up something fun for you all to look forward to this weekend. What’s a weekend without a good-tasting summer dessert to cool you off, right? Our team took some time to narrow down a few of our favorite summer desserts (it was really hard to narrow down to just 5!). Not only are these desserts DELICIOUS, but many of these places provide organic ingredients, healthy options, and best of all, they are all local businesses that promote a sustainable environment. 


1. Frozen Yogurt:

One of the most popular treats year-round is frozen yogurt. With loads and loads of different flavors and endless amount of toppings, like fresh fruits; it’s no wonder why this fun, cooling treat is a favorite not only in our WegoWise office, but everywhere else!

One of our favorites is nearby our office is Wild Cherry.

2. Ice cream:

Ice cream isn’t necessarily the healthiest option, but fresh milk, eggs, and just a few added extras doesn’t hurt once in awhile, right? After all, it’s a treat for a reason. This is a perfect dessert for those fans out there that enjoy the creamy custard.

One of our favorite places would be: Ben and Jerry’s Ice Cream

3. Fruit Salad:

Not too long ago we wrote about farmers market, and we think they are the perfect places to get fresh fruits. Different farmers gather in one spot to provide fruits that you could just eat right on the spot. This season there are blueberries, strawberries, peaches, plums, and apples. The list goes on and on. Let’s not forget a summer favorite: watermelon!

Check out ... Boston’s Dewey Square farmers market

4. Cookies:

We know, we know, you’re thinking cookies? How is that cooling? Well, when you have the equal balance of homemade ice cream right in between two freshly made chocolate chip cookies; you’ll know what we’re talking about. There are a variety of cookies, so pick your favorite and get a big scoop of ice cream and you’ll have the best of both worlds.

One of our favorites would be: The Cookie Monstah truck

5. Snow cones:

The ultimate childhood treat. Fun colors like blue, red, orange, yellow, and green all over the finely crushed ice. This is definitely a summer treat that will be great on those really hot summer days.
