Ice Cream Floats

Friday, August 10th, 2012


Ice cream floats are absolutely delicious, and they are super easy to make. Just pour half a glass of your favorite fizzy drink, and then scoop a couple of scoops of ice cream on the top. Simple. It’s like making a fizzy drink into a creamy dessert.

chocolate-floatWhen making these drinks, do not put the ice cream in first, followed by the soda. No. If you do that, the drink will froth all over, and you’ll have to scoop off the froth, which is abundant. Instead, make sure to pour the drink first, then scoop the ice cream.

My oldest son loves root beer, so I made him a root beer float. My second son wanted a strawberry soda float. You could throw in some chopped strawberries if you want to get fancy. My third son wanted a chocolate float, which contained more ice cream than the others, with club soda on the top, and chocolate syrup drizzled on it. My daughter wanted a grape soda float, and the next door neighbor girl wanted an orange soda float, which looked beautiful and could have been made from orange sherbert if you wanted to buy more than just vanilla ice cream like I did. I tried all the drinks with a spoon, and ALL of them were totally delicious! The chocolate one was probably my favorite.
