3 Delicious Dessert Recipes To Celebrate National Dessert Day!



National Dessert Day has got to be the best day, right after National Dog Day!

If you're a sweet tooth and absolute lover of desserts, you are not going to want to miss this post!

Our Wave Soda team put together a list of some of the tastiest and easiest dessert recipes for you to try out. 

Scroll down to get started!

No Bake Cookies

Like the name suggests, these scrumptious cookies require no baking at all!

These are actually a Rossi family favorite so I am super excited to share them with you today. 

You'll need the following ingredients:

-1 ¾ cups white sugar

-½ cup milk

-½ cup butter

-4 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder

-½ cup crunchy peanut butter

-3 cups quick-cooking oats

-1 teaspoon vanilla extract

There's literally TWO steps to this dessert recipe, which is maybe another reason we love them so much. 

1. In a medium saucepan, combine sugar, butter, milk and cocoa. Bring to a boil and cook for 1.5 minutes. 

2. Remove from heat and stir in peanut butter, vanilla, and oats. Drop by tablespoonfuls onto wax paper. Let cool and harden, then enjoy!

These cookies will have you coming back for seconds and probably thirds! 

They are super rich and chocolatey and they will wash down perfect with a nice Mango Wave Soda

Saltine Toffee Bark

Similar to the last dessert recipe, this one is easy peasy! 

Gather up the following ingredients:

-A box of saltines

-1 cup of butter

-3/4 cup sugar

-2 cups chocolate chips

-1 package of milk chocolate English toffee bits 

 Here we go!

1. Grab a baking sheet and line with aluminum foil. Spray with non-stick spray then line the entire bottom with saltines. (You may need to break some to fit into spaces, but try to cover the whole bottom). Preheat oven to 350. 

2. In a saucepan over medium heat, melt butter. Stir in sugar and bring to boil. Cook for 1-2 minutes, or until sugar is dissolved. Pour mixture over crackers.

3. Bake for 8-10 minutes, or until bubbly. Remove from oven and immediately sprinkle with chocolate chips. As the chips begin to melt, spread over the mixture, creating a top chocolate layer. Sprinkle on the toffee pieces. 

4. Refrigerate for an hour, or until mixture has set and hardened. Break into pieces and enjoy!

You may be thinking that saltines in a dessert recipe is kind of weird, but I promise you guys will not be disappointed. This bark is addicting!

A little salty and a lot of sweet, this saltine toffee bark goes great with our sparkling blueberry soda

Banana Ice-cream

Yup, I said banana. 

Before I tried this, I was a huge skeptic. Banana flavored ice-cream? No thanks.

Funnily enough, a lot of people think the same thing when they hear we make

cucumber fruit soda. (I was one of those people!)

But, like our sparkling cucumber drink, this dessert is low-key bomb! 

What I love about this dessert recipe is that you can make it your own. 

You'll only need two ingredients, but you can add on top!

-frozen bananas (throw some in the freezer or buy some from the store)

-milk (whatever kind you drink; I use coconut and it works perfectly)

Since I am a peanut butter addict, I like to add that into the mixture as well. 

1. Cut up your banana into chunks so it is easier to blend, and throw into a blender with some milk (and peanut butter)

2. Blend to your likeness! A shorter time will get you chunkier ice-cream and a longer time will get you a smooth and creamy mixture

3. Pour into a bowl and top with whatever you want! (My favorite is chocolate chips)

Banana ice-cream is such a simple and healthy substitute for store bought ice-cream that can be high in sugar and contain lots of additives. 

Speaking of healthy substitutes, how good is Wave Soda?

A low-sugar, all-natural alternative to regular soda and made with sparkling water and real fruit juice concentrate. Plus, absolutely no added sugars! 

That's a vibe!
