We are in the final stretch of Summer, back to school season is just around the corner and fall is fastly approaching so I want to make the most out of the last days of the warm weather and the carefree attitude. The best way to do so? With a huge glass of Tropical Ice Cream Float.

Seriously my friends, this is like a vacation in a sip. It's refreshing, tastes like Summer and it's so packed with ice cream it's crazy. Oh, and it's also incredibly hydrating which is awesome as well, especially after a hot day spent by the pool or lake or for a little bbq party. I mean nothing has the power to cool you off while quenching your thirst like this float!

I also find that making a Tropical Ice Cream Float (or floats!) at home is one of those incredibly fun family experiences. You don't need to be a professional cook or cocktail shaker to whip it up, the bubbly explosion if too fun to watch and everyone can customize it to fit their taste and style. If that's not awesome, then I don't know what can be.

For me the secret to making this so delicious is using coconut water + soda instead of soda alone. Most floats only call for soda and while they are good they aren't that thirst quenchers, but when you add the coconut water not only you are adding an extra layer of flavor, but you are also making it incredibly refreshing.

I also like to add chunks of pineapple to the float and bring it all together with a couple of scoops of coconut ice cream and pineapple soda and finally, I garnish it with some lemon slices because honestly, garnished drinks taste better.
