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 in different flavours.

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 cheesecake (above) for Dhs38 or opt for caramel and date tart for Dhs16.

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.
