1) Freak Shakes
Are you a fan of milk shakes? And how about cupcakes, you like those too? What if we told you that you could have both of these, plus some more indulgent toppings all combined in one dessert, eh? Voila! Meet the trendiest dessert beverage in town…the Freak Shake! As the name suggests, this one is strictly for those with a serious sweet tooth. Freak Shakes come in a bunch of different flavours and although chocolate is always a favourite, there are quite a few exciting options for you non-chocoholics (if you exist) too!
Order it from: Coffee By Di Bella
Waffles are an age-old classic and a celebrated delicacy in the breakfast food space. If you’re a fan then there are plenty of choices to satiate your waffle cravings. Although waffles are best had with Nutella or maple syrup and berries, there are plenty of other flavours available—red velvet, coffee mocha, white chocolate etc. Basically, you’re spoilt for choice!
Order it from: 9 Waffles
This elegant French favourite has found its way into our hearts (and tummies) over the last few years. There’s nothing like a couple of macaroons to brighten up an otherwise dull day. These colourful beauties come in a whole bunch of flavours like raspberry, salted caramel, pistachio and so many more. Having too many of these could give you a serious sugar rush…but it’ll (secretly) be totally worth it!
Order it from: Le 15
4) Frozen Yoghurt
Whether it’s a hot summer afternoon, a pleasant night or frankly, any time or season in between, it’s never a bad time for frozen yoghurt. Personally, we believe it’s the best cure for midday blues…or the perfect way to take a 10-minute break on a working day before you dive back into the abyss of paperwork. And don’t forget to add toppings…the more the better!
Order it from: 6th Street Yoghurt
5) Banana Bread
Banana bread is quite a moist, carb-loaded delicacy that has become quite popular these days. It’s a much healthier option as compared to other calorific desserts but that doesn’t mean it’s any less tasty. This little treat may not be sweet poison but it’s every bit as delicious so make sure you give it a try. It’s a fave among vegans and vegetarians so if you’re one of them, be sure to order yourself a loaf.
Order it from: The Baker’s Dozen
6) Ice Cream Cookies
Now who doesn’t love ice cream? It’s a no-brainer whenever you think about stepping out for dessert. Especially when you take it to the next level and place it between two cookies! A whole new spin to the traditional ice cream sandwich, we can’t wait to bite into one of these pronto!
Order it from: Where’s My Cone
Feel like indulging in a sweet treat that’s soft, crumbly, chewy and just melts in your mouth? Well then… we just described fudge, one of the most delicious home desserts ever! Plus, just a spoonful of it is great if you’re the kind who needs to end every meal with something sweet. Keep a jar in your office drawer, will ya?
Order it from: Oh! Fudge
8) 3D Design Cakes
3D Cakes are a major rage these days and from what we’re hearing, the more outlandish the cake, the better. With their eccentric colours, impeccable structure and lifelike detailing, these cakes should be on everyone’s radar, especially those of you who’re throwing bachelorettes for your buddies or have a big birthday celebration coming up! Plus they’re absolutely delicious!
Order it from: Not Just Desserts
9) Berries and Nuts
Not a chocolate person huh? Well, don’t worry…there’s more to the world of desserts. How about some nuts and berries instead? They’re sweet, tangy, fruity and crunchy...and oh, did we forget to mention healthy? This is a great option for all you weight watchers who are craving something sweet but just can’t afford the calories. This little sweet treat will bode well with your sweet cravings as well as your diet plan!
Order from: Rostaa
Craving some soft, light, airy and gooey indulgence? How does mousse sound? It can range from light and fluffy to creamy and thick, so you can go for whatever kind you prefer. Chocolate, strawberry and mango mousse are classics but nowadays there’s lots of other delish flavours such as coffee, caramel, red velvet and so much more!
Order from: MousseStruck
