Frozen Fruit Dessert {Hello Summer}


Hey guys! It’s Abbey from The Cards We Drew! Happy to be here today celebrating Summer with Jamielyn and all her blogging friends. One thing I love most about summer is the FOOD! I love cookouts, fresh fruit, corn on the cob, sweet tea, and most of all…tasty desserts. So today I thought I’d share a family recipe from my great grandmother that is so simple and SO perfect for summer! It’s a frozen fruit dessert!
