6 Treats You Can Make in Your Freezer
When the temperatures rise, make the most of your freezer with these six simple frozen treats.
A cone is so last summer; eat your ice cream Popsicle style. Simply soften your favorite ice cream and scoop it into ice pop molds, then freeze overnight. Try vanilla ice cream, and fancy it up by stirring in rainbow sprinkles.
Heath Bar Crunch Caramel Ice Cream
Speaking of ice cream, it's easy to make your own without the help of an ice cream machine. All you have to do is beat 2 cups of heavy cream with one 14-ounce can of sweetened condensed milk until thick, whipped and smooth — about 5 minutes. Then, fold in 1 1/2 cups chopped Heath Bars and 1/2 cup caramel sauce. Freeze overnight.
Coffee Ice Cubes
Sometimes milk just isn't cold enough. Why not add some coffee ice cubes for a cool afternoon pick-me-up? Simply pour room-temperature coffee into ice cube trays and freeze. Bonus: You can use these coffee ice cubes in your iced coffee, too! They won't water your java down like regular ice cubes.
For an out-of-this-world refreshing treat, freeze 2 cups watermelon chunks, then blend them with the juice of 1 lime and 1/4 cup water.
Blueberry-Lemon Ice Cubes
Cool off with a tall glass of fruit-infused water. Add blueberries and small lemon slices to water-filled ice cube trays, freeze and add to a tall glass of water.
Minty Peach Ice Cubes
If blueberry-lemon isn't your thing, try a glass of minty peach-infused water. Add small peach slices and fresh mint leaves to water-filled ice cube trays, then freeze. Tastes like a day at the spa!
