Ice cream floats are one of my absolute favorite indulgences. I don't normally drink soda, but for some reason when it's mixed with ice cream, it transforms into magic in a glass.
These beauties are super simple to make. Let's go...
Step 1: Supplies
- Ice Cream (I like to use vanilla, but I've heard that chocolate is also worth trying.)
- Pop, a.k.a. Soda (Root Beer and Orange Cream are my faves, but others to try are Cherry & Cola)
- Ice Cream Scoop
- Straws and/or Spoons
- Garnish, if desired
Step 2: Pour Some Sugar
Fill your glass(es) up with soda approximately two thirds of the way.
Step 3: Ice Cream Islands
Next, add one big scoop of ice cream for a shorter glass and one and a half to two scoops to larger glasses.
Step 4: Go With the Flow
My ice cream eyes were bigger than my glass! I never cry over this kind of spilled milk. These tasty treats are best when they're a bit messy.
Be sure to experiment with different sodas and ice cream flavors until you find your own magic combo!
