Ok, let’s be honest…Ice Cream is one of the most beloved desserts and frozen treats! Although there is not much better than a scoop of ice cream topped with sprinkles and chocolate sauce, I might be as in love with ice cream floats. This frozen drink has become a new favorite of mine and maybe because it has been one of the best ways to cool off this summer.
The wonderful thing about an ice cream float is there really is no recipe to follow! Pick your favorite flavor ice cream and start creating from there. I got my inspiration from the wonderful flavors of Brio Ice Cream. They have six amazing flavors that will make for the best scoop or added to any dessert. I chose the more classic flavors to add to my floats and they were delicious!
Strawberry & Cream Ice Cream Float
2 Tbsp Strawberry Syrup (homemade or store-bought)
3 Scoops Madagascar Vanilla Brio Ice Cream
Vanilla Cream Gourmet Soda
Add strawberry syrup to glass + 3 scoops of ice cream and top off with soda
Dark Chocolate Cherry Ice Cream Float
4 Fresh Cherries, Muddled
3 Scoops Dark Chocolate Brio Ice Cream
Dark Cherry Gourmet Soda
Muddle cherries at the bottom of glass, add 3 scoops of ice cream and top off with soda
Root Beer Caramel Ice Cream Float
2 Tbsp Caramel Sauce (Homemade or Store Bought)
3 Scoops Vanilla Caramel Brio Ice Cream
Root Beer Gourmet Soda

There are several of brands of ice cream and flavors that I love and keep in my rotation, but I have recently discovered Brio Ice Cream and will make a permanent place in my freezer and is the perfect addition to my gourmet Ice Cream floats. Brio Ice Cream was founded by the original creators of Earth’s Best Baby Food and many years later they wanted to reinvent ice cream giving us less guilt and more healthy benefits. The ice cream is packaged in individual 3.6 ounce cups or 14 ounce containers. All of Brio’s ice cream flavors are made with whole organic milk and loaded with calcium, protein, antioxidants and probiotics. There are no artificial sweeteners or flavors added to any of the products.
As we strive for added nutrients to our daily diet, we won’t feel as guilty ending our day on a sweet note!!
