Blood Orange Dreamsicle Float

By • June 2, 2011 8 Comments



Author Notes: This float is soda fountain meets ice cream truck and all kinds of lip smacking deliciousness. Who doesn't have great memories of the orange/vanilla popsicle? Aside from being embarrassingly easy to make, it would also be yummy with freshly squeezed tangerine, or just plain freshly squeezed orange juice. I happened to have a bunch of beautiful blood oranges hanging around, so that's what I chose.TiggyBee

Makes one drink

  • 3 blood oranges (the goal is approx 3/4 cup of juice)
  • big scoop of vanilla ice cream
  • seltzer water
  1. Squeeze the juice from the oranges (my 3 yielded about 3/4 cup).
  2. After squeezing, pick the pulp out and add as much as you want to the juice.
  3. Place the big scoop of vanilla ice cream into a tall glass and and pour the juice and pulp over it, topping the drink off with seltzer. It will foam up, so it's a good idea to pour the seltzer in over the sink.
