Blueberry Ice Cream Soda Float Recipe

Hola Amigos and Happy Tuesday! I few weeks ago I had the chance to visit our local but not so close Trader Joe's and found a bottle of 100% Juice, Sparkling Blueberry Juice. Just the fact that it was juice drew my eyes to it. I was thinking on what to do with it since it was so bubbly until it occurred to me, why not a float.
I guess technically is not a soda float, since it has no soda per se, but what makes it fun is the fizziness in the juice achieving the same result as if you were to use soda or sparkling water.

Blueberry  Ice Cream Soda Float 

6 oz Blueberries
1 Cup Sugar
2 TBSP Lemon Juice
Ice Cream 
Blueberry Sparkling Juice or you favorite Sparkling Water

In a heavy saucepan and medium heat, add the blueberries, sugar and lemon juice and cook until blueberries begin to burst  and the sugar is completely dissolved. Bring to a boil and cook for 5 minutes or so and set aside to cool. You have me seen  using this same procedure to make my Triple Purple Berry Smoothie.

Now the rest is pretty simple, I start mine with a little bit of syrup, a scoop of ice cream and some soda and repeat the process and top it some whip cream and more syrup.


Just a refreshing little treat for a hot summer afternoon!

  3. I have a major sweet tooth today, and I'm telling you (last time I promise... I think I promise) you should query editors about publishing a recipe book. You could use blog pages instead of tear sheets. I'd buy it. :)
