Black Cherry, Blueberry & Vanilla Ice Cream Float

*I'm re-posting this from last year because this has been my go-to even this summer.  It is such an easy and festive (and easy...) dessert.  Try it with crumbled graham crackers on top if you want to have some fun : )

.....

Don't you love that just when you think you've tried everything new, you find something that is immediately your new all-time favorite?  Mike and I recently had dinner at his favorite new restaurant, Rye (for those that are local).  It is a sort of upscale southern comfort food type place with an emphasis on fresh and local.

We usually opt for a slice of banana cream and lemon meringue pie for dessert.  As the server was describing couple next to us was ooh-iing and ahhing over their float so much, that I was swayed to give it a try.  Their version was vanilla ice cream, lemon-blueberry sorbet, house-made cherry soda, and topped with soft swiss meringue and a salted crumble. 


I made a very simplified version that has been my new after dinner obsession.  At some point I will go to all of the trouble of making the swiss meringue and creating a salted cookie crumble topping, but for now, this is my favorite super easy and so delicious dessert for the summer.


Black Cherry, Blueberry & Vanilla Ice Cream Float

Vanilla Ice Cream
Blueberries
Black Cherry Soda 

The key is to make sure the ice cream, the glass and the soda are all very, very cold.  This creates the magical slushy vanilla, cherry mixture of the float.



You can see my helping hands finishing the blueberry garnish.  Wouldn't this be so festive for the 4th, too!?

  2. Just checked out their menu--now I want to come over to KC! This looks like a fun and delicious dessert. I'm going to try to replicate the curry roasted cauliflower this week. Have you tried it?
