Confetti Cake Milkshake from Sprinkles Bakes

Confetti Cake Milkshake from Sprinkles Bakes

Today is the last in my Frozen Fridays series, and I’m sharing an assortment of frozen beverages – milkshakes, cocktails, and other concoctions – that had me tracking down where we put the blender when we moved.

I hope you’ve enjoyed these roundups and have gotten some good ideas for your own kitchen adventures. I didn’t try nearly as many of the recipes as I would have liked, but that seems to be the story of my life.

When I was pregnant with Sophie, I ate like a 7-year old. I ate a lot of peanut butter sandwiches (no crust) and bagel pizza bites. I didn’t want water, as important as it was, so I’d have popsicles. By the dozen. My hubby used to yell at me for when a box of popsicles was dinner.

At the time, I was so exhausted that I ate store-bought “ice pops,” as I grew up calling them. But now that I’ve found a new routine with a toddler running around, I’m enjoying experimenting with making my own. This week, I give you several of the popsicle recipes that are on my “to make” list.

If you try any of them, please come back and let me know how you liked it!

First off, Happy 4th of July! I hope you’re enjoying this day with family and friends. We’ll be kicking off the day with a lazy morning, and then joining friends this afternoon for the day’s World Cup soccer game, dinner, and fireworks.

Secondly, I’d like to welcome you to Frozen Fridays. Each Friday throughout the month of July, I’ll be sharing a number of recipes to cool off your summer.

To kick things off, I’ve got 25 ice creams, sorbets, sherberts, and granitas that make my mouth water. It’s been hitting the 90s and higher, so I’m looking forward to stocking my freezer with cool treats. Do you have a favorite that’s not listed below? Please leave a comment and let me know (and share a link to the recipe!).
