Orange Creamsicle Float for #IceCreamWeek
This is our final day of #IceCreamWeek. What a blast of delicious ice cream/frozen treats!! I have loved them all!! Today I bring you a super easy and amazing tasting float. One that brings me back to my childhood, Orange Creamsicle Float!! I have loved this flavor combination forever.
The only real trick here is to get great tasting product. Real creamy homemade or store bought vanilla ice cream. Excellent quality soda pop is a must too!! The combination of these two together are magical!!
Sweet orange flavoring mixing with creamy vanilla, oh how I love it!!! Floats are so nostalgic, I haven’t had one forever but our daughter loves them any chance she can get her hands on one!!
- 2 small scoops of good quality vanilla ice cream
- Good quality orange soda
- Whipped Cream
- Place the scoops of ice cream in a tall glass and fill the glass with the orange soda. Top with whipped cream and serve immediately.
