Nostalgic Grape Ice Cream Float
Do you love going back to simpler times? Wow, did I miss a great and easy Nostalgic Grape Ice Cream Float like this one!! Had to buy the big bottle of grape pop and a tub of ice cream for the kids to enjoy this summer. These of course can be served at anytime of the year. They would make a great movie night treat, or birthday party show stopper, or even a fun family get together dessert at anytime. This is so simple yet everyone forgets about them.
Yup, it is all of three ingredients and you can whip up any flavour you like. I really fancied the grape this time. We have recently made a Hoboken Ice Cream Float which combines pineapple and chocolate together and years ago did an Orange Creamsicle Float that has been super popular ever since!!
Sorry for this photo and that you are now licking your screen. Run, and I mean run to the store and get the fixins’ for this simple yet delicious treat!! You are your family will love you for it!! Kids and adults will equally go crazy for this float. Bringing back memories for us and creating new ones for the kids!!

I have had ice cream floats with rootbeer and gingerale, but never grape soda. I need to try this.
This grape ice cream float looks so yummy. I haven’t had a float in ages. I will have to try this one.
Those look so amazing! I’ve never had a grape float before. I have got to try that out soon!
I have never tried a grapefruit before, but one of my favorite drinks is grape pop so I need to try it.

This float looks so good. I don’t remember the last time I had a grape soda. It was my favorite when I was kid.
I’ve never had a grape ice cream float, but I love grape soda and vanilla ice cream independently. I’ll have to try one of these for sure!

Mmmm, I never thought to try it with grape soda. I’m so doing this this weekend. YUM.
I will have to make some ice cream floats this weekend. The kids are going to love it in this heat. I will have to make a grape one for me.

I never thought that the grape soda looked good but you’re photo made me want one! If you use a PB ice cream then you have a PB & J!
The kids are going to love the bright purple of the grape soda in the float. Such a fun twist on a family favorite.
Ice cream floats are so fun! I’ve never had an orange flavored one so I’ll have to try that dreamsicle recipe of yours!
This has got to be the cutest float ever! I love how pretty the purple looks with the cream!

This looks so good!! I have never thought to have a grape soda in an ice cream like this before, I bet my kids would love this treat too!
Christina Aliperti says
We used to call this a purple cow! And it’s so yummy, can’t wait to make them again.
We use to have Purple Cows as kids. Of course you need to recite the Purple Cow poem before you partake: I never saw a Purple Cow/I hope to never see one/ But I can tell you anyhow/ I would rather See one than be one?
