Summer Time Treats

It’s hot and humid and looking like it’s going to rain any minute, so Cakes and I are spending the day under the a/c at home cooling out.  What I love most about being a mom to a 4 year old is that a chill day at home always turns out to be anything but chill.  (insert sarcasm).  Since she loves to help me cook I thought instead of giving her a regular messy bowl of ice cream that’ll be dripping down her face, hands and arms let’s have a treat that’s fun to make, adds some fruit and won’t need a clean up team.  Vanilla ice cream and strawberry hearts.
All you need is ice cream of your choice, fruit of your choice, a silicone ice tray, a bowl and a spoon:

1. Set 2 or 3 scoops of ice cream aside until it’s soft enough to mix.

2.Dice fruit (I used 4 small-medium strawberries).

3. Mix the fruit into the ice cream (if your mix gets a little soupy it’s totally fine).

4. Once the fruit and ice cream are mixed well, place in your silicone ice tray.
