Creamsicle Float Recipe
Since we live in Florida, our Summer is filled with the 3 S’s: sun, sunscreen and something to sip 🙂 I love the combination of orange + vanilla and orange push-up pops were always my go-to treat from the ice cream truck, so this is my tribute to that yummy combo in a glass!

- Orange Sherbet
- Cream soda (diet or regular)
- Whipped cream, sprinkles and orange slices – optional but so fun and festive
From your pantry:
- Ice cream scoop – I love this no-thaw scooper
- Glasses (mason jars or pretty plastic glasses work just fine)
- Straws (you can find fun paper straws online or in most big box stores)
First, add a few scoops of orange sherbet to your glasses. (printable recipe below)
Then, slowly fill each glass with cream soda. When the soda mixes with the sherbet, it will create a glorious foam!
Now, you can stop here and add a straw and believe me, your family and friends would be perfectly content to sip this Creamsicle Float.
BUT, I love a good garnish and I believe you can’t ever go wrong with whipped cream and sprinkles.
So give each float a generous squirt of whipped cream.
Add some bright orange sprinkles and a few orange slices on the rim of each glass and suddenly you’ve been transported from your kitchen to a swanky beachside resort!
Does this scream Summer or what?!
