15 Delicious Ice Cream Float Recipes

Have you ever craved something in such a huge way that when you finally get a bite of it, you can’t imagine that it could possibly taste any better than it does in that moment? Well, we always feel that way with ice cream each and every time we have it. Recently, however, we had a uniquely gourmet flavoured ice cream float and it was unlike any other float or ice cream based treat we’d ever tasted! That’s how we started searching the far reaches of the Internet for every creatively flavoured ice cream float recipe we could possibly find. Turns out, no matter how much we love a good bite of simple ice cream, it can nearly always taste even better combined with other delicious things.

Just in case you love decadent ice cream floats as much as we do, if not more, check out these fantastic recipes that will let you create all kinds of mouth watering flavour combinations with your ice cream!
