Swimming, carnivals, bikinis, popsicles, warm nights… The word “summer" is almost synonymous with fun! To celebrate the start of the changing seasons and all of the fun it encompasses, I knew I had to create a Summer To-Do List, all told in photos, to share on Instagram (and soon to be recapped here on the blog!).
One of my FAVORITE summer activities, hands down, is a good ol’ fashioned PICNIC!! I teamed up with Pepsi and their #SayItWithPepsi campaign to create a twist on a classic summer treat- a PEPSI float!
I mean, dining al fresco is always a good time, but even better when it involves warm sunshine and summer treats.
(And look for details at the end of the post on how you can enter the #SayItWithPepsi Sweepstakes, for a chance to win some pretty cool prize packs!)
Are you ready for this super easy recipe?!
- One bottle of Pepsi (my fave is the heart-eyes emoji bottle!), easily found at your nearest Walgreen's
- One scoop vanilla ice cream
- A maraschino cherry!
Scoop the ice cream into a glass (sometimes I even take an entire ice cream cone and place it scoop-down in the glass. A little extra cone never hurt anyone), and then open up the Pepsi to pour over the top.
Add your cherry and enjoy. :)
So easy, right? There’s just something so refreshing about creamy smooth vanilla mixed with the fizzy pop of Pepsi.
And stay tuned for the full Summer To-Do List… too much is never enough (at least when it comes to fun)!!
