I partnered with Kemps to bring you this recipe. Thank you for supporting the brands that make Lemon Tree Dwelling possible!
Summer is here….and along with it, swimsuit season! Which really doesn’t seem fair, considering the fact that summer was clearly made for indulging in yummy frozen treats.
I’m pretty sure my kids have begged for me to stop for ice cream every day since summer break started….and to be honest, I totally don’t blame them! Who doesn’t love a cold, creamy sweet treat on a hot summer day?
So clearly….I haven’t stopped. Because we all know that if my kids are getting something, I’m getting something, too. And even though that’s exactly what I want….it’s exactly what I don’t want. You know what I mean?
Of course, we can’t go all summer long without indulging. But we can indulge better. I’ve recently fallen in LOVE with Kemps new Joyfull Scoops Frozen Yogurt, and with just 90-100 calories per serving, you can’t go wrong!
I’m always a fan of Kemps products, not just because they taste amazing, but because I love the values they stand for. Kemps is a 100% farmer family owned company, which means that all of their products come from local family farms and 100% of their profits go to dairy farmers and their families.
Kemps Joyfull Scoops Frozen Yogurt comes in 4 delicious flavors – Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough, Sea Salt Caramel, Chocolate Peanut Butter, and Mint Chocolate Chip – and they’re all low calorie, low sugar, and a good source of protein. They’re available at Pick ‘n Save, and you can get $1 off now through August 3 using this coupon!
The Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough is my favorite (how can you beat two treats in one!?) but the Salted Caramel is a close second. To be honest, though, I have one of each in my freezer right now. And I plan to keep it that way all summer long!
And to make it into an extra special treat? I’m keeping a stockpile of these Homemade Sugar Cones.
Because let’s be honest….part of the fun of stopping for ice cream is the special ice cream cone. Am I right!? My kids always love waffle cones, but the last thing I’m really interested in is another kitchen gadget.
Which is why I decided to perfect the art of sugar cones, where there’s no special equipment required! Just a handful of ingredients, some parchment paper, a baking sheet, and some type of cone form for rolling….and you’re good to go.
I’ll be honest….it took me a few tries to get them right. But once you get it, there’s no going back. Not only do homemade ice cream cones taste amazing (SO much better than store bought), but they’re fun to decorate, too! I dipped mine in chocolate and covered them in sprinkles, but the possibilities are really endless.
And when you fill them with Kemps Joyfull Scoops Frozen Yogurt? I guarantee they’re going to become your new favorite way to indulge. I know they’re mine!

- Line a baking sheet with parchment paper; draw two 7-inch circles on paper.
- Spoon 3 Tbsp. batter into the center of each circle and spread in a thin layer to cover the entire circle.

HOW DO YOU STORE HOMEMADE ICE CREAM CONES?
Cones can be stored in an airtight container. If necessary, they can be re-crisped in the oven at 400° before using.
DO YOU NEED A MACHINE TO MAKE HOMEMADE ICE CREAM CONES?
The simple answer is no! You can easily make homemade ice cream cones without a machine. All you need is a mixer, a baking sheet, some parchment paper, and a cone form for rolling. You can also make homemade ice cream cones in a skillet, just as you would make crepes. Simply pour 3 Tbsp. batter into a cold skillet, turn the heat to medium, cook 4-5 minutes on one side, flip, and cook the other side 1-2 minutes before rolling into a cone shape.
