Chill out with cool summer desserts

7/1/2012

Ah summer, the time for fun at the beach, pool or water park. But what about the other days, when splashy summer fun isn't on the agenda? Here are some ways to help the kids keep their cool this summer:

Fill a bucket with water and ice, add sponge balls and play a refreshing game of catch!

Let the kids help wash the car, or dog, or patio furniture.

Fill spray bottles with crushed fresh mint and water. Keep them in the fridge for a minty-fresh spritz on a hot summer afternoon.

Make homemade ice cream! Try Chocolate Peanut Butter Ice Cream. A rich custard base made with Jif Creamy Peanut Butter, Smucker's® Chocolate Sundae Syrups Ice Cream Topping and PET® Evaporated Milk is what makes this ice cream utterly decadent.

Chill out with this four ingredient Mocha Cappuccino Milkshake. This sweet, cold dessert is a fun way to get chocolate, hazelnut, and mocha cappuccino flavors in each bite!

Set up a sundae bar and let the kids create the coolest dessert of their dreams! Make Chocolate Peanut Butter Dessert Sauce with Jif Creamy Peanut Butter and Eagle Brand® Sweetened Condensed Milk. Fill small bowls with sprinkles, chopped nuts and whipped cream. Don't forget cherries for the top!
