Summer coolers: Ice Candy


I would love to do some for my kids today. Here’s what I’ll be using

Buco meat shredded, condensed milk to sweeten, water. You can add vanilla if you want a more flavorful ice candy. Mix the ingredients well and fill them in ice candy bag. Place them in freezer overnight. Serve.

You can make a variety of fruity ice candy or ice drop by using different fruits in season like mango. To make your summer coolers more fun, you can use animal shaped ice cube trays. Kids would love to see animal shaped ice cubes floating in their favorite juice drink.

Preparing fresh coolers is the best way to beat the summer heat. Have a cold buco juice while relaxing in your favorite patio chair wearing your favorite raybans or shades.
