Sometimes you need to set all the rest of the world aside and focus on a date night or two for you and your other half. Single and loving it? Date nights transform easily into ladies nights, as well! Why not shake up your next “me” time with a couple adult sweet treats that are undoubtedly not for the kiddies.
How about starting your night in with a dream of an adult milkshake! The X-Rated Dream milkshake is as quick and easy as it is delicious! All you need for this grownups only treat is 2 tbsp X-Rated Fusion Liqueur, 1/2 low fat vanilla ice cream, 1 tbsp fat free half and half, and your blender. Throw all of your ingredients together and blend until smooth. Feel free to add a little extra of any of the above, depending on your day. Serve in a chilled martini glass and enjoy!
Looking for a little bit thicker consistency for your boozy dessert? Why not make a sorbet instead! This recipe is for a favorite, mango sorbet, but with a kick. To make like super easy, start with your favorite pint of Mango sorbet. Throw it in a blended with 1/3 cup of your preferred tequila (or more) and 1 cup of orange juice. Blend until smooth, pour into a freezer-worthy container, and pop it into the freezer for about 8 hours. Enjoy by the scoopful!
For a creamier treat with an adult flavor, try frozen wine yogurt. Start with 32 oz of greek yogurt, emptied into a mixing bowl. Add 1/2 cup of your favorite, fruity wine and a pinch of cinnamon. (Add more wine to taste, as with all other recipes.) Mix ingredients thoroughly and return to the original yogurt container. Pop in the freezer for 3 hours, stirring the ingredients every 30 minutes.
Finally, for a refreshing ice pop that’s not quite how mom used to make it try these watermelonny beauties! Combine 5 cups of watermelon, 3 tbsp sugar, 1 cup Limóncello, 1 cup water, and 2 tbsp lemon juice in a blender. Blend until smooth and then pour in your favorite ice-pop molds. Let freeze at least 6 hours and then enjoy!
