A Day for Desserts!

It's August 25th, which means its National Banana Split Day! We’re all in, because who doesn't love dessert?! There is nothing like big scoops of ice cream with a banana, whipped cream, and a cherry on top! It’s the perfect dessert recipe for these warm months we’re in. Even if you aren’t a big fan of banana splits specifically, there's something you have a sweet tooth for. Whether it be milkshakes or popsicles you can simply make these sweets at home to enjoy!

If a homemade milkshake caught your interest, you are in luck. All you’ll need is a blender, ice cream (flavor of your choice), milk (¼ cup to be exact), and whatever flavor add-ins your heart may desire. Personal favorite, I suggest adding oreos to either vanilla or chocolate ice cream. If you want more of a fruit flavored milkshake, adding chunks of either pineapple, banana, or strawberry, is always a fresh take on a homemade milkshake.

Quick and easy to enjoy, quick and easy to create, popsicles are always an easy go to. First you’ll need a mold, whether it be a popsicle mold you’ve already invested in, yogurt containers, or even a muffin tin, this is what you’ll pour your liquid into. Fruit juices are always the go-to option for popsicles whether it be orange or grape juice. If you prefer something different, yogurt is always an option. For a pleasing aesthetic look in your popsicles you can add small pieces of fruit into the juice/yogurt before freezing. Don’t forget to stick the popsicle sticks in! Once frozen, enjoy!
