Simply Delicious!

There are occasions (like last night) when I'll open our freezer door prepared to make two ice cream cones.  Unfortunately, there will only be about 1 cup of ice cream remaining in the container.  That is my clue that the next day I will be making Simply Delicious!  It's light, it's colorful and it needs only three ingredients.  Did I mention easy to prepare?  The directions below are for 2 servings, but it can be doubled very easily.  :)

Simply Delicious
  1. Boil 1 Cup cold water.
  2. Place contents of 1 small pkg. flavored gelatin in a medium bowl.
  3. Pour in hot water and stir to dissolve gelatin.
  4. Add 1 Cup Vanilla ice Cream.
  5. Whisk or stir well until ice cream melts.
  6. Pour into 2 serving dishes/mugs.
  7. Refrigerate several hours.
  8. Serve with whipped cream.
Earlier this afternoon I used one small pkg. Raspberry flavored Jello gelatin and 1 Cup of Black Raspberry ice cream.  Sweet!

Sometimes, I use Strawberry flavored Jello, Strawberry ice cream and a few defrosted Strawberries. 

Life sure is good!  Looking out my window at the colorful bouquet of blooming Zinnias eating Raspberry Simply Delicious!  Yummy!  That was after our visit this afternoon to Stanley Park in Westfield.  Stanley Park is a gem in Western MA.  Filled with flowers and beautifully landscaped, a stroll through this gorgeous park always offers wonderful gardening ideas.  It also has a fountain!  :)

Do you have a favorite quick dessert you make during the summer?  Do you have a favorite park you visit?

This is a fun idea. Although, I might be tempted to just eat that last cup all by myself.
