Lemon Drop Shake

Lemon Drop Shake
I’m on the beach, with my lemon drop shake and latest book in hand.

And 100 SPF slathered all over otherwise I’ll turn into a crisp cookie.

Make yourself a glass and join me in my daydream!

This recipe really is simple. Vanilla ice cream and lemonade.

Two things I love blended together in one glass. If only I had an umbrella straw..

These Lemon Drop Shakes would be extra fun for summer too. You could freeze them into small dixie cups with popsicle sticks in the middle.

Simply peel the cup away from the shake after it is completely frozen.

Do you have any spring or summer vacations planned?

We’re going to Minnesota and I hope all the snow is melted when we visit :)

    I’m glad I’m not the only one who has to wear 100 SPF sunscreen haha. Love the idea of combining lemonade and vanilla ice cream! Minnesota sounds like a fun trip. My boyfriend and I are probably heading out to California for a bit over the summer :).

    Where in Minnesota are you visiting and when? I live there! If I can be of any help to you on your travels, let me know. :)

      Hi Sara! We’re actually from MN so we’re going back to visit our families near the Minneapolis area!

        Have a lovely time! I am in Eagan, and I’d like to say that Spring has finally sprung here, but I’d be lying. This winter has been especially brutal, so if you’re coming anytime soon, bring warm clothes. :(
        THANK YOU for all the great recipes by the way. I just love following your page.

            Ok, that’s funny. It’s A Small World After All is playing in my head right now….. No, I wish I had a blog, but I don’t. I’m trying to get more creative by following talented people such as you! Hopefully one day. I really admire the art in what you do, and that you share it with all of us. Yay for Eagan!!! :)

    So simple and easy. Sounds delish, Beth! You’re obviously busy behind the scenes this week. I’m pretty sure this is the second new header image I’ve seen :) Can’t wait to see your final redesign!

    • Beth @ The First Year says

      Yeah.. I am very indecisive. I think this one will stay for a little bit. I had a whole bunch of trouble trying to get it to appear.

    What a great idea along the lines of a frozen pina colada. We have our vacation in the Florida Keys coming up and the kids will love this drink. They’ll think it’s such a treat! I believe I’ll add a little vodka or raspberry vodka to the adult version. Thanks for sharing on Create It Thursday.
