Best summer treats: homemade raspberry lemonade and ice cream bars.

It’s summer: how do you beat the heat? I suggest cooling off with the perfect hot weather treats—ice cream bars and this frosty homemade raspberry lemonade recipe that’s pretty enough for a party. Thanks for the cool indulgence Magnum Ice Cream…and thank you Mirum Shopper for sponsoring this post.

Raspberry Lemonade & Chocolate Ice Cream

I love the laid-back summer vibe when life moves a little slower, everything looks a little brighter, friends get together a little more often. Somehow there seem to be more hours in a summer’s day.

Since we live near a lake now, it’s easy to understand why we have frequent drop-ins. Unanticipated company? No problem. It’s amazing what a sunshine state-of-mind can do for you!

It helps that I have a few tried-and-true recipes that I can pull together in a hurry when surprise guests come over. And I also keep our freezer stocked with frozen favorites for delicious, no-fuss treats.

Summer is for sure the best time to stock up on ice cream. Ha—who am I kidding? We always have ice cream in our freezer!

But right now is a great time to stock up on Magnum Ice Cream. Shoppers at Safeway, Albertsons, and Vons/Pavilions who spend $20 on Unilever ice cream brands will receive a $5 digital reward. Sweet savings!
