Everyone is talking about summer this week and all the endless possibilities as most of the schools are wrapping up business for the rest of the summer.  Summer break is all I have been hearing about and nothing excites me more than sleeping in, lounging by the pool and taking in the many parks that my area has to offer.  My kids and  l love park days so what is better than bringing in the summer fun and "squeezing" the day than having a picnic and play date at the park while enjoying one of our favorite recipes, Lemonade and Lime Jello!

Make sure you are prepared for your park day with drinks and snacks because the kids will play like crazy and want to sit down for a little much needed break.  I like to pack some sort of low calorie snack (like jello) and their favorite juice drink which happens to be lemonade at the moment.  Made with love, the new Old Fashioned Lemonade with Lime from Tampico, is easy to grab and is great to quench their thirst.  It also helps me make a mean Lemonade and Lime Jello.


Check out the easy (and delicious) recipe below that you and your kids can have so much fun making together!  Also, don’t forget to find your favorite Tampico juice drinks in stores! The brand recently revealed a new logo and designs that show just how irresistible their flavor blends are!
