Yesterday, while watching the news I learned about El Niño, which was fortunate for me because I was beginning to think that I was experiencing some major hot flashes. :) Being December here in Florida with record high temperatures of 85o degrees my northern sensibilities was finding this unusual hot weather, as the kids say today - a drag.
So after dinner to treat myself I made a delightful frosty dessert. It is fairly easy to make and is tasty and cool on any hot day, even on days in Florida with El Niño passing through town. All you need is the following.
6-8 whole frozen Strawberries
8-12 ounces of Breyers Strawberry Ice Cream
1/2 cup frozen Cool Whip Topping
1/2 cup of Sunny D Tangy Original Citrus Punch
- Add strawberries, ice cream, and cool whip in a blender.
- Pour in enough Sunny D Tangy Original Citrus Punch to smooth mixture when blended
- Blend ingredients to a thick and creamy shake.
- Pour shake into your favorite drinking glass or glasses and enjoy.
Wow, what a wonderful cooling taste. It strongly reminds me of the Creamsicle ice cream bars we use to buy from the ice cream man when we were children way back when.
Until next time,
