As of last week, it’s officially summer, and temperatures are heating up around the country. Here in Tennessee, it’s been super humid and in the 90′s, so I’m always looking for ways to cool down. Having a sweet tooth, one of my favorite ways to beat the heat is with some tasty ice cream sundaes, so I jumped at the chance to partner with Edy’s to share one of my favorite summer sundae recipes and help promote a great charity initiative!
My favorite sundae of summer 2012 starts with Edy’s Slow Churned light ice cream, Drumstick flavor! Edy’s Slow Churned actually has 1/2 the fat and 1/3 fewer calories than regular ice cream, so to keep with the light trend, I pile it high with fresh strawberries. On the less than lighter side, I top it off with whipped cream and chocolate syrup. Yum!
What’s your favorite summer sundae?
And more importantly, are you ready to help Edy’s gift 500 surgeries/smiles to children in-need through Operation Smile?
Right now, Edy’s is running its A Reason to Smile program on Facebook. All you have to do to join in on the fun is grab a scoop of Edy’s Slow Churned ice cream (they’re giving away 600 for free each day), crack a smile, snap a photo, and upload it. For every ice cream smile captured in a photo and uploaded to Edy’s Facebook page, Slow Churned will donate $5 to Operation Smile. By the end of the summer, the goal is to give away more than 25,000 scoops of ice cream, capture 25,000 ice cream smiles and gift 500 surgeries/smiles to children in-need.
Edy’s® Slow Churned Light Ice Cream is churned slowly for all the rich & creamy taste of regular ice cream, but with half the fat and one-third fewer calories. Now that’s a reason to smile. Give a smile with Operation Smile: http://www.facebook.com/EdysIceCream
