I’m hoping that you’ve enjoyed this week’s series and that these great treats we’ve shared will help keep you cool over the next couple of months.
Last, but not least, here are two recipes for popular drinks that you can easily make at home…one to share with the kids and one to keep all for yourself.
These kinds of recipes make me happy for two reasons…you don’t have to leave the house OR fork over ridiculous amounts of cash to enjoy them.
Creamy, dreamy and ice cold…you need to make one…SOON!
