Apple Cider Floats! OMG!

If you like ice cream drinks on a hot summer day,I like these better than root beer floats. And they are much better for you than all the sugar that’s in root beer. Imagine drinking apple pie a la mode.

Apple Cider Float Recipe:

Not that you really need a recipe to make floats, but here are a couple tips.

  1. 50/50 vanilla ice cream and apple cider.
  • Use good quality, rich, real vanilla ice cream. Ice milk just won’t cut it. If you live in Wisconsin, Sassy Cow makes an awesome vanilla ice cream.
  • Top with apple slices and dip them in the ice cream to eat. Yummm!
  • Sprinkle with cinnamon.
