Remember those orange sherbet pushups?
That was my usual choice off the ice cream truck. I can still hear its light-hearted tune growing louder as it chugged closer toward our street.
Not only were the pushups easier, (ever try to enjoy a Rocket Pop or Ice Cream Sandwich on a hot afternoon in July? At least the pushup had a cardboard wrapper!),
but the orange flavor was wonderful, and now, when I taste it, I feel like I’m back in the old neighborhood in a pair of cutoffs with bare feet.
Orangesicle Cream Float Recipe
That’s why I love these Orangesicle Cream Floats. They taste just like the classic pushup that’s topped with a dollop of whipped cream.
This one is so easy to throw together–and it’s also one of the easiest to vary according to family favorites and creating any kind of ice cream float you choose.
Here’s how we made this one:
1 scoop of vanilla ice cream
1 cup of Fanta orange soda
1 large swirl of whipped cream
The Fanta Soda comes in several other flavors, like strawberry, pineapple, and grape. Buy a few bottles for variety, keep them chilled, and then serve over ice cream at your next pool party or when your family’s just hanging out one evening on the porch.
