Here are nine top spots for home-delivered icy treats…
Home-grown Dubai restaurant, 3Fils has rolled out a new ice cream box from its at-home range and it looks absolutely delicious. The box includes two signature flavours – African powerhouse for chocolate lovers and Madagascar vanilla which is made using only the finest and freshest vanilla beans. You can get creative with the selection of toppings that come along in the box from biscuit crumble, fresh berries, scrumptious sauces and more. It also includes a stainless steel ice cream scoop.

Marks & Spencer
A new rage of indulgent frozen treats has been rolled out to help cool down during the last few weeks of summer. The chocolate salted caramel is a must-try for chocolate lovers and there’s even a Sicilian lemon curd ice cream which is sure to cool you down. Vegans, try the raspberry ripple (pictured above) which is a coconut-based iced dessert with Scottish raspberry ripple.

The Brooklyn Creamery
Starting out as a small New York dessert parlour, The Brooklyn Creamery is run by passionate ice-cream artisans whose mission is to develop guilt-free healthier desserts. The tubs contain 60 per cent less fat and half the calories of regular ice cream – but you wouldn’t know when you taste it. You can now even get low-calorie ice lollies that are only 41 calories. It comes in two flavour options – five citrus fruits and five wild berries.

London Diary Cafe
With venue dotted around Dubai, this award-winning cafe has a variety of treats for you to indulge in. Their ice-creams are perhaps one of their most famed items, but the cafe also serves up ice-cream cakes that are great for a small get-together. If you want to indulge in one all by yourself, they have mini versions. Try the vanilla chocolate cake for Dhs35 or if you want something tropical, opt for the coconut mango ice-cream cake for Dhs40.

Originating in India, kulfi (or qulfi) is a frozen dairy dessert that’s the perfect summer pick-me-up. Flavours from Kulfilicious include crowd-pleasers such as chocolate, butterscotch and coffee, but we reckon the standouts are the pistachio, rose, cardamon, cashew and paan paan – a post-meal treat for Indians. Order your kulfi in a cup or on a stick. They also have faloodas (pictured), a traditional cold dessert made with noodles and rose syrup that’s mouthful of a milkshake.
