I have exactly 2 days, 8 hours, and 12 minutes until my kidlets are home for the summer! Am I excited? Yes. I’m tired of making lunches, carpooling, pushing homework and morning routines. Will I be wishing for school to start in July? Yes. It’s a double-edged sword. My family came up with this Lime Rickey Freeze to kick-off our summer. We LOVE lime rickey drinks from our local restaurant, so by using our new Blendtec blender and adding ice cream we made our lime rickey craze an even more satisfying summer treat!
We received one of their blenders as a gift when we got married 16 YEARS AGO and it is still going strong! We’ve used it like crazy, as you may have seen in some of my recipes on this blog like Fresh Strawberry Syrup, Homemade Egg Nog, Basic Smoothies, Strawberry-Orange Syrup and it never quits after 16 years of good use!
I decided to get a new one because our old one is attached to a mixer (which is still going strong too!) but we wanted a blender to stay on the counter without having an attachment. I love the digital interface. I love the strength of the motor and the durability. And I love all that you can make with this Blendtec BLENDER–like these amazing Lime Rickey Freezes.
So here’s how to make a Lime Rickey Freeze!
1 cup of grape juice (you can use frozen concentrate, but we like the strong grape flavor of bottled juice)
1 lime, (about 1 TB of lime juice) more or less to taste
3-4 cups of vanilla ice cream (or frozen yogurt)
3/4 cup of lemon-lime soda
1-2 cups of ice
