If you’re looking for something a little cooler than your typical Popsicle, look no further than one of these seven chilly treats.

Cucina Reverse Affogato

Espresso gelato made in-house is covered in warm vanilla cream. Who needs an iced coffee when you can stay cool with this? (515 8 Ave. S.W., 587-353-6565, eatcucina.com, @eatcucina)

Charcut Milk Chocolate Parfait

If you manage to save a little room after a meat-centric meal here, go with the parfait layered with chocolate mousse, caramel, Ovaltine crunch and chocolate cookie crumbs. (899 Centre St. S., 403-984-2180, charcut.com, @charcut)

Divino Ice Cream Sandwich

A sweet and bright lemon souffle is frozen and sandwiched between brioche. Perfect to share on the patio with a couple glasses of prosecco. (113 8 Ave. S.W., 403-234-0403, crmr.com, @divino_bistro)

Downtownfood Ginger Panna Cotta

Tart rhubarb granita with a sweet panna cotta, candied lemon and peanut biscotti makes for a perfect ending to a dinner here on a warm July evening. (628 8 Ave. S.W., 587-353-3474, downtownfood.ca, @downtownfood)

Kuzina Ouzo Ice Cream

The distinct liqueur that should always wrap up any good Greek dinner is mixed with vanilla ice cream for a liquorice-y punch. (1137 17 Ave. S.W., 403-245-0060)

Village Ice Cream Cucumber Mint Sorbet

Refreshing as a well-made mojito, minus the booze. That being said, you could always take a pint home and add a splash of rum to your bowl of sorbet. Village Ice Cream reopens Thursday, July 4. (431 10 Ave. S.E., 403-261-7950, villageicecream.com, @villageicecream)

Vintage Chophouse Vintage Baked Alaska

Vanilla ice cream and raspberry sorbet on top of shortbread is wrapped in meringue, torched and served. Hot-meets-cold in the best way possible. (322 11 Ave. S.W., 403-262-7262, vintagechophouse.com, @VintageChop)
