With summer in full swing, I am already hearing the dreaded “Mom, I’m bored” bit from my five little monkeys. So to cure the boredom blues, today was all about inventing our own unique ice cream creations. As is our tendency, we turned it into a contest. Boys vs. Girls in the Ultimate Sundae Smackdown.
My boys opted for a chocolatey combo they call “The Chocolate Marshmallow Monster”. Aptly named, don’t you think? We used Dreyer’s Slow Churned Light Chocolate and Vanilla Ice Cream, and added mini-marshmallows, chocolate syrup, whipped cream and a cherry for the top.
My daughter and I found some coveted raspberries, a rare treat here in Texas. So we knew we had to craft our creation in their honor. We call it the “Raspberry Banana Blast”. We used Dreyers Slow Churned Light Vanilla and Raspberry Ice Cream, then added fresh raspberries, sliced banana, berry syrup and whipped cream.
So who was the winner? Well it depends on who you ask. Since there are more boys than girls in my family (and they all voted for themselves!) technically, the Chocolate Marshmallow Monster garnered more votes. But if you ask me, there is no beating our heavenly raspberry creation.
If you’d like to try this ice cream for yourself, keep an eye on their Facebook page where they are giving away 400 coupons for free scoops each day. You’ll need to be quick to get one!
Dreyer’s® Slow Churned Light Ice Cream is churned slowly for all the rich & creamy taste of regular ice cream, but with half the fat and one-third fewer calories. Now that’s a reason to smile.
