When I came across this illustration in my Pinterest feed, I knew I just needed to share it on the M&M blog! After all – it’s a combination of almost all of my favorite finer things 😉 This Thirsty Thursday pick isn’t as much about drinking as it is about dining. While champagne is in the mix, our “beverage” of choice is a super yummy ice cream cocktail–a dessert fit for a princess! Simply place two layers of raspberries between small scoops of vanilla ice cream and top with your favorite champagne! You can follow the illustrated directions above if you get confused, and click through the included link in the pin for more champagne-y goodness. Pretty, boozy, and sweet–the ultimate Thursday pick-me-up!

This post from Nisa Homey, partially entitled “COOKING IS EASY”, breaks this ice cream down step-by-step. You don’t even need an ice cream maker, guys. All you need is fresh mango, powdered milk, cream, skim milk, and sugar. There’s literally no reason not to make this! Full disclosure: I might be making and eating this semi-healthy treat every day all summer long. It’s casual. Want in on it? Make sure to click through to Nisa’s site for the breakdown!
