Episode 93_ The Busy Parent's Guide to Homemade Frozen Treats .png

This week’s episode is brought to you by Breyers® CarbSmart

Homemade ice cream seems like an old fashioned summer tradition from a bygone time, but there are so many other frozen treats that even busy parents can pull off at home. This week Stacie grills Meghan on everything she wants to know about making ice cream, popsicles, granita and more with our kids in the kitchen. We also touch on no bake treats so you can have dessert without heating up the kitchen.

Summer Goal: Make Just One Frozen Treat

Summer break is here and that means you have hours of cute backyard summer activities planned, right? Kidding! This summer will be unlike any other — some of us are still quarantined, parks are closed vacations are cancelled. Stuck at home, we want to encourage you to make a frozen treat or two this summer. You don’t need a ice cream maker to make most of these ideas. Even a few can be made by the kids.

Here are all the recipes and ideas from this week’s convo:
