Italian Ice Recipe

An Easy Kid-Friendly Italian Ice Recipe

Summer time is hot dogs, baseball, and cold summer treats like Italian Ice. This Italian ice recipe is an easy summer treat for the kids.  What I love about this Italian ice recipe is how simple it is to make. 

A lot of Italian Ice recipes are complicated and contain alcoholic drinks.  This Italian ice recipe can be adjusted to any flavor your kids prefer since its made with a box of JELLO and Kool-Aid. This Italian ice recipe is not going to be as authentic as the local Italian Ice Shoppe but it is a great summer treat for the kids.
