“I scream, you scream, we all scream for ice cream!”… Sometimes I find myself humming the classic tune on warm sunny days and yesterday was definitely one of those days! Here in Oregon the month of April can be a hit or a miss on the weather – meaning we could pretty much have a little of everything, and luckily yesterday and today are simply gorgeous with temperatures around 75 degrees, which means everyone starts thinking about barbeques and ice cream!

I like to get creative and make my own ice cream from time to time. We have a traditional ice cream machine as well as a small one that is in in the shape of a ball that you literally roll back and forth and shake to create ice cream. It works well if you are camping, but it’s definitely a workout! So yesterday Anika and I made ice cream in my traditional ice cream maker, but we made the ice cream with a slightly non-traditional ingredient that I had personally never thought of using before – Kool-Aid Easy Mix.

 We were at Walmart last week and from time to time they have in-store demos, and they happened to be demoing their new Kool-Aid Easy Mix, which is really convenient to make because you add water and make the desired amount that you’d like. Well, I got to thinking that not only would the Kool-Aid Easy Mix be good for making beverages, but just might be an easy way to make some fun ice cream flavors – and I was right. The Kool-Aid Easy Mix comes in cherry, grape, and tropical punch, so I bought one of each and put our ice cream making skills to work.  The results were very satisfying!

 Here’s what I did:

Kool-Aid Easy Mix Ice Cream

What you need:

½ cup of heavy whipping cream
1 ½ cups of half and half
1 cup of whole milk
1/3 cup of your favorite flavor of Kool-Aid Easy Mix
Waffle cones and sprinkles (optional)
Ice and rock salt (per your ice cream makers’ instructions).

Pour the cream; half and half, milk and Kool-Aid Easy Mix into a mixing bowl. Whisk together until combined. Pour into ice cream machine and follow the machines instructions. When the ice cream is finished, scoop into a waffle cone and top with your favorite color of sprinkles.

Makes approximately 6 servings

 This could also be a fun way to let kids participate in making a cool treat during play dates or even birthday parties! Do you ever make your own ice cream?
