I can't think of a better way to enjoy the warm weather and sunny days than with cool beverages and icy goodies, am I right?

and while on the average summer day I'd head straight for the chilled wine or frozen grapes, it's 2020 and ya girl decided to get a lil' boujee wit' it.

so here are three recipes that take common delights and give them a fresh or frozen twist for your next shindig, kickback, or the next time you find yourself feelin' fancy:


for the grown and sexy in the room... take that refreshing glass of rosé and turn it into an adult slushy.

what you'll need:

makes ~6 glasses

  • medium to large glass baking pan

  • 1-750mL bottle of dark colored, sweet, bold rosĂ©

  • 1 serving of very ripe berries of choice (i.e. eight medium strawberries, 1 cup of blueberries/blackberries/raspberries) if using strawberries, be sure to hull and quarter them.

  • 1/2 cup water

  • 2 cups of ice

pour rosé into baking pan and freeze for at least 4 hours; it'll turn into a slushy texture but not fully freeze because of the alcohol content.

In a blender, take serving of fruit with 1/2 cup of water and 1 cup of ice and blend until smooth.

add in the slushy rosé and other cup of ice.

blend until smooth and enjoy.

tip: be sure to keep blend in freezer until your next pour and rebound before serving.

boujee ice cubes

why use any ol' ice cubes when you can spice them up with some fresh fruit and herbs?

what you'll need:

  • ice cube tray

  • fruit of choice; a type of berry or pomegranate seeds work best but honestly, so long as it fits in the tray, use whatever fruit your heart desires.

  • fresh mint leaves, sliced

fill ice tray with water (leaving room to account for the water rise from adding fruit).

add your fruit and top with mint leaf.

freeze for at least four hours before using.

tip: if you're drinking something other than water, make the ice cubes out of whatever your beverage of the day is to keep it from getting overly diluted when the ice cubes melt.

berry protein shake mini ice pops

for my fitness freaks... you know you're reaching for that high protein snack anyways so, let's give it a summertime face lift.

what you'll need:

makes ~18 ice pops

  • silicone ice pop or mini muffin tray; I used this one from target. I recommend silicone because it's makes for easy removal of the pops from the pan.

  • wooden popsicle sticks

  • 1 serving of berries (i.e eight medium strawberries, 1 cup of blueberries/blackberries/raspberries) for this particular recipe, I used blueberries.

  • 1 scoop of vanilla flavored protein of choice; I used whey isolate from swolverine.

  • 3 teaspoons of chia seeds

  • 1/4 cup of raw walnuts

  • 3/4 cup of milk of choice; I used vanilla soy.

place all ingredients into blender and blend until smooth.

pour smoothie into silicone tray and place in freezer for about 4 hours.

after about 30-45 minutes into the freeze, place the popsicle sticks into the smoothie mix.

you want to wait until it begins to harden a bit so the stick will stay upright as it freezes rather than fall over when the smoothie is still in a fully liquid state.

they'll be fully frozen in about three hours.

tip: option to layer chia seeds, walnuts, or even dark chocolate chips as you pour mixture into tray for a nice crunch.

thanks so much for reading today and I hope you find yourself enjoying these treats as much as I do throughout the summer.

talk soon!đź–¤
