Sparkling Ice Kiwi Strawberry
3-4 Fresh Strawberries (hulled)
5-6 Fresh Blackberries
Garnishes: Sugar for Glass Rim, Pop Rocks, Dry Ice (optional), Fresh Sliced Kiwi
Blend the strawberries and set aside. Rim a glass with colored sugar of your choice. Smash blackberries at the bottom of the glass. Add the blended strawberries and sliced kiwi. Fill the glass with Sparkling Ice Kiwi Strawberry and add a pinch of Pop Rocks. Drop three small pieces of dry ice (optional) as garnish.
2 Cups Sparkling Ice Cherry Limeade
1 1/2 Cups Raspberry Sherbet, Softened
Garnishes: Pink Cotton Candy, Sugar for Glass Rim
In a large mixing bowl, combine Sparkling Ice Cherry Limeade with Raspberry Sherbet. Mix on low speed with a blender or electric mixer until it’s well incorporated. To serve, pour into sugar-rimmed glasses and garnish with a small amount of cotton candy!
2 Cups Whole Milk French Vanilla Yogurt
1/4 Cup Sparkling Ice Black Raspberry
5-6 Fresh Blackberries, cut in half
6 Fresh Raspberries, cut in half
Edible Glitter, Sparkling Colored Sugar
In a small bowl, combine 1/2 cup yogurt with Sparkling Ice Black Raspberry; mix well and set aside. Add a layer of vanilla yogurt to the bottom of each popsicle mold. Add a layer of yogurt/Sparkling Ice Black Raspberry mixture and add 3-4 pieces of fruit to the mold. Finish each by dividing the remaining yogurt among the popsicle molds; use a knife or wooden skewer to swirl the mixture slightly. Insert popsicle sticks and freeze for at least 8 hours, or until completely frozen.
Before serving, run popsicle molds under warm water to release the popsicles. Allow popsicles to sit at room temperature for 2 minutes and immediately sprinkle or brush with edible glitter or sparkling sugar. Serve immediately or return to freezer until ready to serve.
DreamWorks Trolls Movie Review
Dreamworks’ Trolls, an animated film done by the creators of Shrek, is a colorful, funny and toe tapping film that opens in theaters across the nation this weekend. It is pretty fitting that this movie opens right after Halloween because it is full of sweetness, seriously. The Trolls themselves are postively, optimistic, song birds that hug every hour (they even have a hug timer) and are happier than happy. They have a nostalgic look of our favorite Trolls dolls, which have the adults reminiscing, and the kids in awe. And while the movie itself reminded me of a colorful psychedelic experience, the kids are sure to love it. The kids DID love it.
While the Trolls are overly optimistic, their fearful neighbors the ‘Bergens’ seem to be in a constant depressive state and believe the only way to happiness is with a Troll in their belly. Hence, why they set off to invade the Troll city. When a few of Poppy’s (Anna Kendrick) friends were kidnapped during the invasion, she set off to rescue them. Her side kick Branch (Justin Timberlake), the only grumpy Troll known, tags along for the journey. Together the duo set off on a fun adventure, where they not only try to rescue their fellow Trolls, they also learn a bit about themselves.
The kids will love it The parents will tolerate it. Everyone will sing along to the amazing soundtrack! See DreamWorks’ Trolls NOW in theaters!
