5 Summer Ice Cream Recipes to Beat the Heat!

5 Summer Ice Cream Recipes

I don’t know where you are, but where I am (St. Louis) we’ve had some weird weather the past month. One week it’s so hot and humid you can barely breathe and the next week you start wondering if Fall is around the corner.  It’s definitely been a strange summer, but I am not complaining because I enjoy the fact that we haven’t hit temps like we did last year. But even with the “cooler than usual” temps, it’s still hot and we are still finding ways to beat the heat.

Share a Coke and try this Super Simple Ice Cream Coke Floats Recipe #ShareItForward #Shop

It’s Summer break in our house, the kids are finally off school and it’s time to cool down and have some fun with all our free time. Of course, that’s not really the case for me, because mom still has to work and the breaks come a lot less frequently. This means I have to carve out some time every day for the kids, and on the weekends we enjoy going to the pool, having a game or movie night and just spending time together. It’s all about family for us and with the Nationwide Share a Coke event coming to a Walmart near you, you can celebrate your family, friends, any loved one you want. We also made these Super Simple Ice Cream Coke Floats to enjoy!

15 Fantastic Smoothie Recipes to Beat the Heat!

15 Smoothie Recipes

With summer in full swing, having an arsenal of good smoothie recipes, is important. I don’t know about you, but when we are trying to beat the heat, we love cooling down with big pitchers of smoothies. Even over popsicles, my kids request smoothie recipes far more often to cool off in the summer months. This means I have to have lots of different smoothie recipes in hand, or we will just get tired of the same drinks over and over. That’s why I always share my recipes, so you can make different smoothies at home too for your family.

Twix Milkshakes

Who doesn’t love TWIX® Bites? We used TWIX® Bites to create easy TWIX® Milkshakes and TWIX® Brownie Bites for our Teen Night In party!

I remember when my kids were all still really young. We used to have kids coming and going at all times of the day and evening, as they played outside, ran around the neighborhood and rode bikes together. I hoped and prayed that even when my kids were teenagers, that our house would be the house that everyone wanted to come to hang out at. Not so much because I wanted to be the cool mom, that was part of it ;), but also because I wanted a safe place they could all hang out and have fun and I enjoy watching them all together. Our house being the place to hang out, means I don’t have to worry about who is driving, where they are or who they are with. Flash forward all these years later, and that is our house to a tee. I feel blessed and I love having all these kids over on a regular basis.

 Watermelon Kool-Aid Fruit Drinks Malted Milkshakes

Nothing screams summer like Watermelon. Or Malted Milk Shakes. Yes? Yes! Kool-Aid’s new ready-to-serve, 96 ounce fruit drinks bottles made it easy for me to incorporate our favorite flavor in one of our favorite summertime treats. Watermelon Kool-Aid Fruit Drinks Malted Milkshakes! With the new bottles, this malted milkshake is ready in under 5 minutes from start to finish. With a house full of hot teenagers this summer, I’m positive that we will be making this recipe time and time again, to keep them cooled off!

My daughter is currently learning to drive, so after some practice in our already hot weather, we were ready for a break and we knew just the treat we wanted. We stopped by Walmart to pick up the ingredients needed to make this easy perfect-for-summer beverage. It took us no time at all to find the large display of Kool-Aid juice drinks. They were right there in the middle of a huge aisle!  We made sure to pick up a few other Kool-Aid items because we have some more fun Kool-Aid recipes coming your way!
