Orange Creamsicle Ice Cream Float – Frozen Flavor Feature

Hello! Today, I’m sharing this show-stopping orange creamsicle ice cream float – our latest in our Frozen Flavor series for ice cream drinks.

 

If you’ve ever done much observing about ice cream floats, you will see there are two camps. In one camp are those who believe the ice cream goes into the glass first. In the other are the folks who believe the soda goes in first to eliminate excess foam. I am a staunch member of the first camp. I want all the frothy goodness I can get out of a float!

I think if I were to crown a winner of all the flavor combos we’ve worked with so far, this orange creamsicle ice cream float would be sporting a shiny tiara.

If this thing isn’t a beauty, I don’t know what is! It was almost too pretty to drink. And, oh, my! Just one taste will bring memories of the happy (and safe) ice cream truck days, when we would run out into the street with our quarters for an orange creamsicle or an orange push-pop. Orange Creamsicle Ice Cream Float - The Gifted Gabber

We used Crush Orange Soda, but Fanta or any other brand would likely do just fine.

Making floats doesn’t get any easier: a couple of scoops of ice cream or sherbet and flavored soda.

Join us next time for another ice cream drink concoction  in our Frozen Flavor series. What kind of ice cream drink person are you: floats, shakes, malts?

    I love ice cream floats. I haven’t had one for many years though. I bet they would be still very delicious. I must admit I’m of the camp who would put my lemonade in first and then top. Sorry!
