Apple Pie ice cream floats

Aren’t ice cream floats the perfect instant treat? I mean really, they take what,… a whopping 30 seconds to make?!  Instant satisfaction! :) I know ice cream floats are a huge hit at my house, especially with the kids.

I recently stumbled across a brilliant idea…

Apple Pie Floats!

I know, I know, it kinda sounds crazy, but trust me. If you love Apple Pie, and if you love floats, you are in for a treat.

This Apple Pie Float recipe is a little trickier than the regular two-ingredient float. Do you think you can handle three?!

Vanilla Ice Cream, GingerAle, and Apple Cider (use high quality apple cider).

Mix to desired taste. (I like 50% cider, 50% soda). Garnish with a little cinnamon for an extra kick.

I’ve also heard cinnamon ice cream or apple pie ice cream are FABULOUS substitutes for the vanilla ice cream.

Besides the common, yet oh so amazing, Root Beer Floats, what are you favorite float combinations? I also love Orange Soda Floats (with Stewart’s Orange soda,…think creamsicle). Amazing!

    Oh yes! We do floats as well. The funny thing is.. we use the gallon size store brand vanilla ice cream. (Food Lion brand) because it has just the right amount of vanilla, and makes the floats rather creamy! Strangest thing ever!

    My favorite growing up was grape or strawberry pop with vanilla ice cream. It was a huge treat for us when we got those! :)

    I love this idea.. Anything to simply tweak to ordinary into something a little more exciting!

    My family loves Banana Milkshakes. Use Blue Bell Banana Pudding ice cream (it's the BEST!) The chunks of nilla wafers get all soggy and DELICIOUS once you mix it with the milk = absolutely fabulous.

    Try banana Oreo shakes: use a fresh banana, cut up, spin in a blender with vanilla ice cream, then chunk/crush up some Oreos, mix in and enjoy the yummiest shake in the world!

    Every now and then I'll have a milk float. Yep. Just ice cream and milk-the milk makes the ice cream do the amazing crusty thing times 10-it's fantastic!

    Yummm! I think these will go on the menu for dessert next week. I wonder how they be as *cherry* pie? because I do love me some Cherry pie..Think that's worth a try as well :)

    My brother recently made eggnog floats. AHmazing! Eggnog, vanilla or eggnog ice-cream, and a dash of rum for the grown ups. Mmmmm.

      Tiffany says:
      actually I guess that's an eggnog shake not an eggnog float. But you get the point: deliciousness!

    love this, I would have never thought of it. when i first read the title of your post I thought you were going to have apple pie filling in there. this sounds way better and easier to drink with a straw!
