What's Your Favorite Summertime Treat?

During the summer (and throughout the year too), I love eating/drinking delicious Root Beer Floats. The basic recipe for a root beer float? Root Beer + Vanilla Ice Cream = A delicious Root Beer Float.
You can of course use other ice cream flavors but vanilla is pretty much the "traditional flavor" that's normally used. You can also mix it up and use different sodas (like orange soda) to make other ice cream soda desserts.
Along with the soda and ice cream, you can add whatever toppings you like including different flavored syrups, whipped cream, fresh fruit, sprinkles, peanuts, and more.
Fresh fruit
My sister likes her root beer floats simple -just root beer and ice cream.
I like adding whipped cream and cherries.
My dad prefers ice cream sundaes. I made one with ice cream, strawberry syrup, fresh strawberries, and whipped cream. Sadly, we were out of peanuts. =(

So what's your favorite summertime treat? Other favorites of mine are smoothies, Slurpees, and frozen yogurt!


  1. the ice cream sundae looks amazing. and i'd pick that as my dessert for summer too cuz you're eatinf fruits so it's like you're eating healthy? haha! omg I love floats! I used to work at mcdonalds and would make myself a coke float before going home all the time
