Frosty Lemon Ice

If you are planning a Labor Day celebration 
or an end of the summer party
I have the frosty cool drink for you!

This Lemon Ice is the easiest, most
refreshing drink you could whip up.

We enjoyed something like this 
this summer
and you know I had to come home and
try to recreate it.

Then we made it at Lake Powell a couple
of times and everyone loved it.

Soooo easy!

Frosty Lemon Ice Recipe

1 container (1.75 quarts) vanilla ice cream
(I like to use Dreyer's Slow Churned - half the fat!)
12 oz. lemonade concentrate (thawed)
raspberry syrup for a garnish

Pour the thawed lemonade concentrate into 
your blender container.
Soften the ice cream by placing the container in
the microwave for 45 seconds.  Scoop the whole
container of ice cream into the blender.  Use your
ice or liquefy setting and blend.  If it is a little thick
you can thin it with 1/2 C. Sprite or 7 Up.

Pour into glasses.  Garnish with raspberry sauce
if desired.  You can also pour a little raspberry sauce
in the bottom of the glass if desired.
Serve with a straw and a spoon. 

I got these cute flat spoons at the grocery store in
bright colors.  They are Diamond Brand
Slider Ice Cream Spoons 
and come 24 to a pack in aqua, pink and green.

The raspberry sauce is from Costco, it is
Red Raspberry Kodiak Syrup.  My sister
in Texas said she couldn't find it at her Costco,
but if you can find it, it is fabulous, quick
raspberry sauce.

Give this one a try.  I can't get enough of it
and using low-fat ice cream, I don't feel
nearly as guilty eating it!!

I will be posting this with


Chocolat - French for Chocolate. I adored chocolate from a young age when I had to sneak in the cupboard to find where my mother had hidden the Nestle's Chocolate Chips. Having read about the famous chocolat shoppes in Paris, when I finally got there I was determined to try a chocolate from every Paris shoppe. I invite you to share my adventures in creating, in travel, and in life.

  4. Do we have to mention Labor Day..
    I cringe thinking our lovely summer is almost dust in the wind.
    Fall will be glorious and I will have so many moments thinking.."this is the prettiest season"~
