Summer is pretty much here in the Duke household. My kids have one more week left of school, then it’s time to par-tay! I love summer, and I love baking and playing with my kids. Not to mention–sleeping in! I’m very excited to share a new treat around here, with a fun WAFFLE CONE twist! Who doesn’t love a waffle cone?  This Fruit Smoothie Ice Cream Pie with Waffle Cone Crust is the essence of summertime treats, and fun to make with the kids, too!

Perfect summer treat! fruit smoothie ice cream pie with waffle cone crust #icecream #smoothie #fruit www.KristenDuke.com

Though the process has a few steps that involve freezer shifts, it’s very easy to do on a movie marathon day or in between crafting activities with kids while home. Main ingredients are: vanilla ice cream, strawberries, blueberries, and waffle cones=easy!  I used Keebler brand waffle cones. It’s basically: waffle crust, then blueberry ice cream mixture, then strawberry ice cream mixture. The instructions are very detailed, don’t let that overwhelm you. You are just mixing pureed fruit with ice cream for the 3 layer pie.
