When my daughter was 4 years old, we moved into a new house. There weren't many kids in the neighborhood, so we spent a lot of "mom & daughter time" together. One hot summer day, my daughter seemed lonely, so I asked if she wanted to make up a new recipe for something different to eat or drink. This is what we came up with! We both loved it and made it several times over that summer and the summers to follow!
