Lemon-Lime Ice Milk


My oldest son stopped by Saturday with my two adorable grand kids in tow while I was whipping up a batch of Lemon Lime Ice Milk. It is one of the components in an amazingly delicious two-component dessert that I found on epicurious.com. When it was ready we all sat down to have a bowl. It was cool, creamy, and delicious. My son remarked that it was so refreshing -- the perfect indulgence for our hundred-degree heat. My grand kids just silently gobbled it up, scraping the bottoms of their bowls with their spoons, and, ultimately, drinking the cream at the bottom. I asked my son if my daughter-in-law would enjoy having a container of it sent home. He indicated that she would, at which point my granddaughter gave me those cow eyes and asked if she could take some home, too. What can I tell you? It was a huge success!

This is the easiest frozen dessert you will ever make. It involves no cooking whatsoever, has an incredibly delicious, fresh taste, and will win over old and young alike. It is the perfect summer refresher!

Awwww, man.... I was all excited, but then saw you have to have an ice cream maker. Shoot! Don't have one or space to put one! 😞

Oh Pattie silently scraping the bowl is such a great compliment, and kids can be so picky! The photo and description are mouth-watering. Yum!
