Strawberry Shakes for Adults Only

Memorial weekend is always such a blast. A mini-vacation with friends to kick off the summer. Beautiful! And this weekend I discovered a new treat — Tequila Rose liqueur. It’s strawberry flavored and delicious. A friend was making delicious little shots with it. The bottle she brought was in a box with a couple of pretty little shot glasses – and recipes on the back!

The recipes look delicious. We were at the lake without the ingredients to make the interesting adult beverages in these recipes, but I thought I’d share them.

These frozen beverages call to mind the adult ice pops in Gourmet Ice Pops for Kids and Adults. It would take some adjustments to get these to freeze solid, but I bet they are a taste treat just the way they are. Here are the 3 that look the most delicious.

Tequila Rose Adult Milk Shake

2 ounces Tequila Rose strawberry

2 scoops vanilla ice cream

Whipped cream

Red sprinkles

Drizzle chocolate syrup in a hurricane glass, blend Tequila Rose and ice cream, pour into glass, top with whipped cream and red sprinkles.

Strawberry Smore

Gourmet Ice Pops for Kids and Adults – New Release

Our latest cookbook is out just in time to beat the heat of summer. Gourmet Ice Pops for Kids and Adults is a fun, illustrated cookbook filled with great ideas for frozen treats.

There are few treats more satisfying than a frozen popsicle on a sunny day. But why eat the boring same-old pops from the grocery store? They tend to be filled with sugar, corn syrup, and chemicals.

Making your own ice pops is quick and easy and it opens the doors to a world of great flavors. When making pops yourself, you can be sure to only include healthy ingredients or adjust recipes to include your kids’ favorite foods or to eliminate an ingredient your kids just won’t eat.

Although they are a dessert item, by creating pops make from fresh fruits, fruit juices, yogurts and natural sweeteners like honey, you can indulge in delicious treats that are still very healthy!

Ice Pops can be decadent and heavy, but many of the recipes included here are light and healthy. Starting with juices or teas, many of these delicious pops are low calorie and low fat or even no fat! (Don’t worry, we’ve included plenty of naughty Pops as well.)

This book is full of recipes and ideas for delicious, gourmet ice pops, divided into 3 sections — kids favorites, gourmet flavors, and adults only (recipes with alcoholic ingredients). Skim through the Table of Contents and you’re sure to find your new favorite!

Gourmet Ice Pops includes more than 50 delicious recipes with tips and notes to help you create your own variations! Includes color photos and illustrations to make the book more entertaining plus a hyperlinked table of contents for ease of use.

Currently available for only $2.99, exclusively at Amazon.
