Easy Berry Float
with homemade blueberry soda
A blueberry ice cream float garnished with fresh berries and lemon zest is a wonderful treat, when you want a unique and easy dessert.
It is quick and easy to make homemade blueberry soda with Torani Syrup, which makes this float extra special.
You can use your Soda Stream to make it or simply stir the syrup into club soda or sparkling water, like I do.
Feel free to adjust the amount as syrup to suit your taste, since some will like a stronger or a more subtle blueberry flavor.
Other brands of syrup can work, too, but my kitchen is currently well stocked with a variety of Torani Syrups.
Lemon zest and fresh berries are the perfect garnish, when you serve this dessert.
They look pretty and add nice flavor to the drink.
Any fresh berries will complement the blueberry soda and vanilla ice cream, so choose whatever is in season in and available.
If you’ve got a little time to plan ahead, make a batch of my no churn vanilla ice cream the night before you are going to make the floats.
Otherwise, your favorite brand of ice cream from the store is just fine.
