These Cherry Limeade Ice Cream Floats are a perfect treat for summer. Get the kids involved and whip some of these delicious floats today!
Summer is all about entertaining, staying cool, and having fun. What a better way to kick off the summer season than with delicious Cherry Limeade Ice Cream Floats.
This recipe was such a riot to make. I love when recipes are vibrant and fun. This one fits the bill.
It's so easy to make. It's also perfect for kids for a fun summer treat.
For this recipe, I used a store bought sparkling cherry limeade drink. Any brand will work. Or you can make your own by mixing together lime juice, any lemon or lemon lime soda, and a bit of grenadine, or maraschino cherry juice.
I used a really good quality vanilla ice cream for this recipe. If you really want to keep the calorie count down use frozen yogurt, sorbet, or a low fat ice cream. Using any of those will keep this a super low calorie treat.
Whip up a batch for yourself or the kiddos today!

Nothing better than an ice cream float for summer!
Thanks so much Sylvie. I love a good float.
We have Sparkling Ice in our new vending machine at the studio, and I swear IT MAKES ME JUMP HIGHER. They are my most favourite long-teaching day treat...
That's so awesome you have it in your vending machines. It's good stuff. I've had so much fun playing with different flavours. I can just imagine you jumping higher and soaring majestically through the air while holding a Sparkling Ice.

That is delish! Sweet and zesty. bring it on!
Thanks so much Rebecca.
Oh yum, this looks like a fun warm weather treat!
Thanks Marye. We had a blast the day we made these. So much fun and they're so delicious.
Chrisy @ Homemade Hooplah
These sound absolutely DELICIOUS! And the heat is already here with a vengeance in AZ - I'll have to make these this weekend when we have company over!
Thanks so much Chrisy. I want to come come to Arizona for the big Arabian Horse Shows that you guys are famous for. My friend's parents live there and we've been talking about visiting. She warned me that if we do it's wicked hot. It gets hot here too but nothing like where you live. Right now we're still sort of cool, especially at night. It doesn't usually warm up till end of May, then it hits with full force till September. Ha.
Enjoy if you make them. I'm a sucker for pink drinks and food.

Nice idea for a super-simple, yet special-seeming, treat! And your photos are adorable!!!

What a fun twist on a float. I love root beer floats so I am sure I would love these and so would my family.
Thanks Michelle. I'm a float fanatic. I could drink them all day long, ever single day.
Pink was always my favorite color and how I love these pretty pink floats! Great way to use the Sparkling Ice drink, Kim! It's super fun for the super hot summer days that are soon arriving!!
Thanks so much Lora. I'm a pink girl all the way. So funny because my daughter hates pink. I also adore burgundy, the shade closest to a merlot colour. Almost every room in my house has hints of that. It's everywhere.
I can't wait for summer. More sipping, less work, lots of time with the hooligans.

You can't get must simpler, or tastier than this. Perfect for cooling off in the summer heat....or anytime for that matter.
Thanks Renee. I dig a cool summer sip.

I love those Sparliking Ice drinks. These floats look amazing! I want to dive into one right now!
Wish I'd found this post before I finished the last Cherry Limeade Sparkling Ice. Probably won't work the same with the Grapefruit S.I. in the fridge. Will save for next time though. Thanks for sharing!
Thanks Carrol. Try making granita with the grapefruit one. I bet it would be amazing!!
Omg this is really simple to make! My daughter wants to give this recipe a try. Thank you for sharing on the Merry Monday party!
