Summer is definitely here in Phoenix! Our high today is 114 degrees & it is ridiculously HOT! To help try to keep cool, my boys & I make home made ice cream a couple times of week. Last week, we made home made chocolate chip cookie sandwiches with vanilla ice cream & toffee sprinkles. This week, we made red, white, & blue mini milkshakes in honor of Independence Day. My oldest, Jake, dubbed our creation "The United Shakes of America".
To make, start with a batch of homemade vanilla ice cream & divide into 3 equal parts. Place the 1/3 of the plain vanilla back into the freezer. Mix up 1/3 of vanilla with red & the remaining 1/3 with blue gel color in separate containers. Fill your glasses 1/3 full of blue ice cream & place back in the freezer to set. Follow with 1/3 white & 1/3 red, allowing each layer to set in between.
We topped ours with whipped cream & few sprinkles! YUM! Summer is starting to look a little cooler!
