Orange Dreamsicle Float

Orange Dreamsicle Float - ButterYum
I don't know what the weather has been like where you live, but it's been raining here for days and there doesn't seem to be an end in sight.  We need the rain, but the dark gloomy days have started to wear me down and my body is craving sunshine.

Desperate for a quick fix to temporarily escape the dreariness, I decided to treat myself to this bright and cheery ice cream float which tastes like a yummy Dreamsicle Bar. Whether you need a pick-me-up or not, this cool and creamy treat is sure to put a smile on your face.



Orange Dreamsicle Float

Place two scoops of vanilla ice cream in a tall glass
Add as much orange soda as you like
Top with whipped cream
Sit back and enjoy!

  7. When we had these with my grandparents growing up, my grandma called them orange cows. Don't ask me why other than they were dairy farmers and ice cream comes from milk. Makes me miss her more than ever!

  18. Sound absolutely delish! Presumably you could do this with any soda-I crave cherry at the moment. We've had great weather Herr, but the April showers are well and truly on their way in now!

  38. Thanks for stopping in at Cranberry Morning! Baking bread is really very easy. Just follow that recipe and it will turn out just like those. :-)

    My heart did a little flip when I saw that Dreamsicle photo. When I was little, the ice cream man used to stop in and my mom would buy dreamsicles that we would get as a treat now and then. NOTHING like orange and ice cream. I loved them!! This looks fantastic...and nostalgic. :-)

  49. Hi Patricia,
    Thanks for letting me know you haven't received your book yet. I sent your address off to the publishing company and heard back from them on Monday. Hopefully you will get it in the next few days. Let me know if you don't and I'll contact them again! Thanks Patricia!

  50. I am currently craving barbecue potato chips and now I'm wanting a tall ice cold orange soda. yum!

    ReplyDelete
  51. This would taste amazing! So refreshing. Great combination of flavours!

    ReplyDelete
  52. I love making these! Until recently, I never even thought to make a float with anything other than root beer! I usually let mine sit for a few minutes before I eat it to give the ice-cream a little more time to blend with the soda; the "creamsicle" taste shines through better that way. Delicious, easy, and perfect for summer! :)
