What do you get when summer’s most sought-after sweet meets the season’s most thirst-quenching beverage?
Easy Lemon Ice Cream Sandwiches!
It’s crazy to think how much life has changed since I spent last summer guzzling lemonade (my go-to pregnancy craving) while awaiting Evan’s arrival. We now have both a 1-year-old and a 2-year-old running wild, which means I’m kicking my snack recipe repertoire up a notch and dreaming up every cool, creamy, refreshing option to satisfy even the tiniest of taste buds.
I could think of no better way to cool off than transforming my favorite Florida’s Natural® Brand Lemonade into ice cream. You read that right: Lemonade, meet ice cream. Ice cream, meet lemonade.
It’s the latest concoction coming out of my kitchen as part of the Florida’s Natural Brunch Club, which I’ve been a proud (and hungry) member of for the past four years.
If your immediate thought when it comes to DIY ice cream is, “But I don’t have that crazy-expensive machine!” then this recipe is for you.
If you can stir, you can turn lemonade into the silkiest, smoothest lemon ice cream to ever hit your lips. And that means even 2-year-old Julian has found himself in the kitchen, whipping up “keemers” (ice cream) and anxiously anticipating the point at which we roll these quick-fix ice cream sandwiches in all. the. sprinkles.
The excitement is mutual, as I love feeding the boys homemade snacks, especially ones that not only taste good but also do good. Every purchase of Florida’s Natural Lemonade helps support Alex’s Lemonade Stand Foundation, a nonprofit that funds childhood cancer research.
This is a summer sweet that is easy to make, refreshingly delicious and supportive of a wonderful cause, making Easy Lemon Ice Cream Sandwiches the ultimate intersection of food, family and feeling good.
