lemonade ice cream recipe.

Each month for the monthly spread, we invite a guest chef or caterer to write a menu for a special occasion.  For July, our foodie friend Terri created a yummy lineup for the 4th that included a lemonade ice cream pie.  Sound good?  It tastes even better.

With the weather heating up,  I couldn’t help but make a slightly simpler version and share it with you…. (happy dance).

(try wrapping the bottom of cones in wax paper to help with drips… worked like a charm.)


1 container (1.5 QT) favorite vanilla ice cream, 1 can (12 oz.) favorite frozen lemonade from concentrate (we used raspberry lemonade)


1.  Set ice cream and lemonade out to thaw.  Allow ice cream to thaw until soft, but not melted.  Let lemonade thaw completely.

2.  Scoop ice cream into a large bowl.  Pour 1/2 of the lemonade over the ice cream and mix together well.  Try a bite and add more lemonade to taste (we used 3/4 can).

3.  Cover bowl and put in freezer to harden (we did this overnight, but a few hours would probably be enough).

4.  Scoop into bowls or cones and serve!


I think we’ve discovered a new summer favorite that might just rival s’mores.  If that’s even possible.

What summer snacks and treats do you enjoy!?
