READ TIME: 3 mins.

Summer is here, and there's no better way to soak up the warm weather than by creating memorable moments right in your own backyard. Whether you're planning a picnic with friends or looking for a fun and delicious activity to entertain the kiddos during their summer vacation, a DIY Donut Bar is the perfect solution. It's easy to set up, delightful for all ages, and guarantees a sweet time!

Setting Up Your DIY Donut Bar

Step 1: The Donut Base

Start by buying a box of your favourite basic glazed donuts. These will serve as the perfect canvas for your DIY donut creations. Glazed donuts are versatile and offer a deliciously sweet foundation for any toppings you choose.

Step 2: Delicious Syrups

Next, stock up on a variety of mouthwatering syrups to dip your donuts in. Our top picks are Caramel and Chocolate. Not only do these flavours complement the glazed donuts perfectly, but any leftovers can be used to drizzle over ice cream later on.

Step 3: Tasty Toppings

To add a layer of texture and flavour, gather a selection of yummy toppings. Here are some of our favourites:

  • Toasted Coconut Flakes: Adds a tropical crunch.
  • Graham Crumbs: Offers a sweet, slightly crunchy texture.
  • Sprinkles: Adds a fun, colourful element that kids will love.

Step 4: Creating Flavour Combos

Encourage your guests to get creative with their flavour combinations. Here are a couple of ideas to get started:

  • Caramel + Graham: A rich, sweet blend that mimics a caramel cheesecake.
  • Chocolate + Coconut: A classic combo that brings a hint of tropical flavour to the mix.

Pairing with the Perfect Summer Drink

No summer treat is complete without a refreshing drink to pair with it. Our recommendation? The Matcha Pistachio, Summer Sipper! This delightful beverage is an Iced Matcha Latte sweetened with Pistachio Cold Foam. Its unique flavour profile provides a refreshing contrast to the sweetness of the donuts, making it the perfect complement to your backyard picnic!

Set up a cozy picnic area with blankets, pillows, and some shade to keep everyone comfortable. Arrange the donuts, syrups, and toppings on a table or blanket, and let everyone have fun creating their own delicious donut masterpieces. This setup promises a memorable summer experience right in your own backyard.

So, grab your donuts, mix your syrups, and sprinkle on the fun. Cheers to a sweet summer with delicious treats and refreshing sips! ☀️🍩🍵
