Topping ideas:

If you love ice cream, try this fun treat. It is easy to make and tastes amazing. Fanta floats are always a hit.

How to serve:

We used mason jars but the floats would be pretty in ice cream float glasses. You might also want to grab a few of the longer straws. I like to get the ones in fun designs but any will do.

Sometimes, you can find pretty glasses at the dollar store too. I’m always looking for a good deal.

It is so easy to make a Fanta Float!

We just loved this easy and delicious dessert. It is perfect for an after school treat or on a HOT Saturday afternoon. Really it is good anytime. We all just love it!

Now we are experimenting with different types of floats and it’s so much fun! This would also be a really cool idea for a party. You could have all sorts of different soda and ice cream.

Great for parties!

I think people would love making their own float. Set out a bunch of cups and everyone can just make what they prefer. So fun and really inexpensive too.

We were actually swimming the last time we made these and and it didn’t take much work to get the kids out of the pool to try these ice cream floats. They were all eager to try them.

Every single person loved it and asked for more! It’s rare everyone likes the same thing around here. But we are all fans of ice cream floats. They are just so yummy!

The next time you have some friends over, grab some fanta and some ice cream for a kid approved dessert! Everyone will love these ice cream floats.
