That's right homegirls (and boy or two). I made an ice cream float. I haven't a clue why, in the middle of winter, I suddenly declared that it was ice cream float season. I'm thinking it likely has something to do with all the excitement over my upcoming Gluten + Dairy Free Treats class (yep, a week today!). Or, maybe I was just longing from yonder years when I used to have slumber parties at my grandma and grandpa's house and ice cream floats were the dessert of choice (that or frozen grape bubble gum?? things I will never understand).
The floats would be served up in these little black and white cups (and if you come to my kitchen, you might just spot it here). We usually had vanilla ice cream and our float liquid of choice was, of course, root beer. The magic of the float was that you would scoop in your ice cream, pour the soda pop over top and the whole thing would turn into a frothy mug of heaven, topped off with a bendy red and white straw. As I will be sweetly demonstrating in my class next week, eating for amazing health does not mean you have to do away with the treats of yesteryear
