10 Best Summer Desserts With An Indian Twist

Since India is frequently blessed with scorching, summer-like days that never seem to end, the country undoubtedly knows a thing or two about chilled, delectable desserts. Here are the top 10 Indian-inspired summer treats.

Mango ice cream prepared at home

You can eat mangoes for breakfast, lunch, and dinner because it is mango season. So why not make ice cream out of them? To assemble it, you’ll need cream, custard, milk, mango puree, vanilla, finely diced mangoes, and a mixer. It is simple to make at home and tastes much better than anything you might buy from a store or café.

Jingle Mint Popsicles

Jamun, a fruit with a tangy flavor, is ideal for making a cool dessert with lime and mint. For a touch of sweetness or a distinctive Indian flavor, add some sugar or black salt. It’s absurdly simple to prepare; just combine all the ingredients, pour the mixture into popsicle molds, and freeze until solid. Voila! Your mouthwatering summer delight is prepared for serving.

Lychee Watermelon Granita

The best summer treat will always be plain old watermelon; you may enjoy it chilled, in a smoothie, as a delicious sorbet, or in an intriguing lychee-infused granita. This beverage will quickly ward off the oppressive summer heat thanks to the addition of lime juice, ginger, and mint leaves. It also works well as a detox beverage.

Maali Kulfi

One of the traditional Indian summer desserts that is loved all throughout the nation is malai kulfi. You’ll need milk, cream, condensed milk, saffron, cardamom, plus a few dried fruits to make this delicacy. The gentle sweetness of Malai Kulfi is best enjoyed when it is served in a traditional clay matka.

Fruit Jellos

With a few melon molds (made from freshly cut and scooped melons) and delicious fruity fillings, it’s time to get creative. You can experiment with a few fruit juices by blending them and, if necessary, adding sugar, but we suggest preparing your own freshly squeezed juices instead! The juice mixture (for instance, orange and pomegranate) needs to be heated in a saucepan before being mixed with agar agar to make jello and then poured into the melon molds. Enjoy your odd summer treat of melon after freezing and cutting!

Avocado Mousse

Another way to savor mango, the king of fruits, is with mango mousse. The combination of mango mousse’s creamy texture with whipping cream and crunchy dried fruits is just very wonderful. The best part is that it just takes 30 minutes to complete. Since there is no agar agar or gelatin in the vegetarian version, it may be made even more quickly.

Citrus Sorbet

When you want to taste something energizing and revitalizing in the summer, the sweet-and-tart lemon sorbet is a traditional go-to recipe. It works well as a stand-alone dessert and as a unique way to end your dinner. Lemon sorbet is the ideal summer treat you’ve been waiting for because it only requires a few ingredients and takes less than 30 minutes to prepare.

Apple Chaat

India’s favorite street food, fruit chaat, is best characterized as fruits mixed with spices. Yes, it is that simple, but just wait till you taste this goodness! Red chilli powder, chaat masala, and roasted cumin powder are the spices needed to make this delicious fruit salad. Apples, pomegranates, bananas, papayas, pineapples, grapes, and oranges can all be used in the salad. Try as many different things as you like while there are summer fruits available. The spices are what give fruit chaat its unique flavor, so be sure to use them according to the instructions.


This delicacy of tiered ice and creamy sweetness is like the sweet tooths’ version of heaven if you’ve ever visited north India in the summer. This sweet beverage looks gorgeous and tastes much better thanks to the addition of rose syrup, milk, ice cream, faluda sev, and sabja seeds to its preparation. You could even have it for breakfast because it’s so filling!

Mango Pannacotta with Coconut

Mangoes are sweet and have a delicate flavor that is certainly a match made in heaven. Because of this, coconut mango pannacotta is one of the best summertime desserts ever. Nothing could possibly go wrong! It’s a straightforward dessert that you can prepare at home right now with only a few simple ingredients. Don’t forget to add a little piece of mango as a garnish to the coconut mango pannacotta so it looks professionally prepared.
