Root Beer Float with Almond Whipped Cream
It’s hard to improve upon a classic, but Donna from Cookistry has done just that. She makes the classic root beer float even better by using coffee ice cream and a scratch-made almond whipped cream. (Please excuse us while we run to the store for some root beer…)
Bourbon Vanilla and Ginger Beer Float
Daily Meal Editor Emma Alpern is on to something here: bourbon vanilla ice cream, ginger beer, and a shot of bourbon? We’ll take two, please!
G'Day Mate-y Yerba Mate Floats

Ben & Jerry’s Cherry Garcia Ice Cream Float Recipe
Daily Meal Editor Kate Kolenda created this confection in honor of her father, who loves cherries and Ben & Jerry’s Cherry Garcia ice cream.

Like Root Beer Floats? 10 Easy Ice-Cream-and-Soda Recipes Under 300 Calories
What pairs better with hot weather than a root beer float? To celebrate these last few weeks of summer (and also because my editor LOVES ice cream floats), I thought I would come up with 10 unique ice cream floats that clock in at less than 300 calories each! Enjoy!
__Extra-Creamy Root Beer Float__Start with 1/2 cup vanilla bean ice cream, top with 8 ounces of your favorite root beer, and then stir in two tablespoons whipped topping. The perfect treat for just 259 calories. Tip: Stick a glass in the freezer a couple of hours before serving for an extra-icy way to serve this up.
__Creamsicle Float__Start with 3/4 cup orange sherbet and top with 8 ounces of cream soda. You'll get a taste of your childhood for just 280 calories. An added bonus: sherbet is naturally low in fat since they are generally made with just a small amount of milk or cream.
__Lemon-Ginger Float__If you are looking for something light, yet bursting with flavor, try this float. Start with 3/4 cup lemon sorbet and top with 8 ounces of ginger ale and slurp away for just 285 calories. Sorbet is a great option for those that are lactose intolerant since it is made without any dairy.
__PB & J Float__If you love the flavors of a classic PB & J sammie, then you'll love this float too. Start with 1/2 cup peanut butter ice cream and top with 8 ounces of grape soda. All that goodness will only set you back 272 calories. If you want to keep it more natural and add a few nutrients to boot, try making this float with sparkling grape juice instead of grape soda.
__Key-Lime Float__Take a trip to the Florida Keys with every sip of this refreshing float. Start with 3/4 cup lime sherbet and top with 8 ounces lemon-lime soda to savor this 260-calorie-treat. Top with 1 tablespoon whipped topping for just 11 calories more.
__Cherry-Cherry Cola Float__Love an old-fashion cherry cola? You'll love this take on it! Scoop 1/2 cup cherry ice cream into a glass and add 8 ounces cherry cola. Drink up for 254 calories or add a tablespoon of whipped topping and a cherry for just 19 calories more.
__The Float the Doctor Ordered__If your favorite guilty-pleasure is a candy-bar and soda combo, this float is for you. Spoon 1/2 cup Moose Tracks ice cream into a glass and top with 8 ounces Dr. Pepper for a reasonable 280 calories. That beats the 400 calories you would consume if you drank a 12-ounce can of soda and ate a regular-sized candy bar!
__Extra-Creamy Cookies and Cream Float__Eight-ounces of cream soda tops 1/2 cup cookies and cream ice cream for an extra creamy treat that clocks in at 260 calories. You could even crumble one chocolate sandwich cookie over the top and still come in right at 300 calories!
__Raspberry-Ginger-Mint Float__For an extra taste of summertime, muddle one tablespoon mint leaves in a glass before adding 1/2 cup raspberry sorbet and 8 ounces ginger ale. This refreshing float has just 210 calories. Add some fresh or frozen raspberries for even more flavor and some fiber to boot.
__Better-Than-Butter-Beer-Float__Any Harry Potter fans out there? You'll love this butter-beer-inspired float. Scoop 1/2 cup vanilla ice cream into a glass and top with 8-ounces butterscotch soda. A frozen beer mug makes the perfect Harry Potter-themed dessert!
Bourbon Ice Cream Float Recipe
Something about an old-fashioned ice cream float brings us back to our childhood, but we decided to give that throwback treat an adults-only twist with a healthy dose of bourbon to go along with the creamy ice cream and fizzy soda this time around. With only three simple ingredients, a dreamy cold indulgence is just seconds away&mdashmaking it just as perfect and easy to whip up on an average night as at a full-blown cookout. Above all, we love the versatility of this bourbon-laced ice cream float. Feeling exotic? Go with a spicy ginger ale or ginger beer with vanilla ice cream and orange-infused bourbon. Feeling extra Southern? Throw together old-fashioned root beer, pralines-and-cream ice cream, and your favorite bourbon. Feeling autumn-inspired? Pick hard apple cider, dulce de leche ice cream, and your favorite bourbon. All of these options&mdashand any more fun variations you can come up with&mdashpair incredibly well with the robust finishing touch the bourbon provides. Ice cream floats are a fun way to get everyone involved in the dessert process with a DIY twist. Set out different soda and ice cream options and let your guests go wild. There&rsquos bound to be at least a few interesting combinations to test out, and the bourbon should definitely be allowed to be poured a plenty to the guests&rsquo taste! You can bet you&rsquore going to be the hostess to beat after serving up these fun treats.

So happy you are back and I hope, through returning to writing, you will begin to feel like yourself again even if you don’t get all the answers. I am also struggling so if you hear some other footsteps as you look for the path out if the woods… it’s me.
Cristina – SO happy you are back! Despite your absence, I never un-favorited your blog from my browser, hoping you would return some day and continuing to find inspiration in your older posts. I have been down that same path, and emerged after much pain, time, $$$$$ out the other side. I often think about those years and it is remarkable how different my life is now. I hope you too find your way out, and while it often feels like you are spinning your wheels, it is so worth it to keep trying.
Very very happy you are back, just do whatever you can, don’t worry about the rest, and best wishes heading your way!
What a beautiful post. I wish you the best.
So glad to hear your words and see your beautiful pictures! Thank you for coming back and for sharing-you’re loved and missed! Hoping for great news in the time to come about how you’re feeling. Xoxo
Just found this site after googling “fruity simple syrups” or something like that. Started browsing the site and found this page. You write beautifully, and your recipes look wonderful (LOVE the photos on this page!). I hope things get better for you — I know how scary medical things can be when no one can figure out what’s going on. I will be back at this site regularly to check out more recipes. Thank you!
What a beautiful post. I have missed your writing and am full of admiration for how you put something so difficult into perfect words. I am wishing you lots of strength, and that you please keep writing.
It looks so fabulous, thanks for sharing
oh sweet lord ! that looks awesome thank you for the great article .
This is such a wonderful dessert. Your creativity with these ice cream floats is brilliant. The berries look amazing. I am looking forward to trying these in my kitchen. I believe my family will love this summer treat. Thank you for sharing. God bless.
Very touching! I wish the best for you and find your courage to write about your struggles in this format you chose to be humbling and healing. I enjoyed reading your post about these fabulous floats and I am inspired to make some for my family and friends.
Wow! Can’t wait to make this! Looks beautiful and sounds divine.
Thank you for this wonderful recipe and Merry Christmas!
Add the milk, heavy cream, and vanilla bean (split down the middle) to a heavy-bottomed saucepan. Bring the cream and milk mixture nearly to a boil over medium-high heat. Take the pan off the heat and leave it to infuse with the vanilla bean for 20 minutes.
Whisk the egg yolks with the ¾ cup sugar in a large bowl until the yolks are thickened and pale yellow in color. Remove the vanilla bean from the milk and cream mixture and gradually pour the still-warm mixture into the egg yolks while whisking constantly. I find this easier to do if I transfer the mixture to a large measuring cup. Pour the combined mixture back into the pan and cook, stirring constantly, over medium-high heat until thickened. Remove from the heat and set aside to cool.
Time For An Ice Cream Float
Sure, the holidays are here, and soon the weather is going to turn nasty cold, but I still want to suck down ice cream floats until I get a brain freeze as often as I can.
Especially when the floats get filled with cinnamon ice cream, eggnog, and ginger ale. Now that is a winning combination for sure! I used store-bought eggnog (although this homemade eggnog recipe would be awesome) for this float recipe. The eggnog is so rich and creamy which is utterly intensified by the cinnamon ice cream!
If you cannot find cinnamon ice cream, vanilla or even peppermint would do! After the ice cream, the spicy ginger ale is slowly poured right in until the mixture froths and bubbles.

That&aposs right, it is absolutely possible to whip up this cool frozen treat with no ice cream at all.
I&aposm sharing 6 simple techniques to make a milkshake without ice cream𠅊nd you&aposve probably already got most of these ingredients in your kitchen. What are you waiting for? It&aposs time for dessert.
