Hot days call for cool desserts, like this boozy milkshake, which combines frosty mint with its old friend chocolate.

What to buy: Chocolate-mint wafer cookies like Thin Mints or Back to Nature’s Fudge Mint Cookies add an extra kick of mint, but plain chocolate wafer cookies would work as well. Or, you can make our Slim Mints recipe.
