Easy Frozen Limeade Ice Cream Floats

Summer time is such a great time for trying out new recipes! Today I’ve got a tasty and fun Frozen Limeade Ice Cream Floats that the kids (and the adults) will love!

Did I ever tell you guys about my lemonade stand I had one summer? I was 8 years old and I wanted to make some pocket change for the bodega. We had the coolest bodega on the corner of our block and sometimes I was allowed to go and buy things with my friends. (How times have changed!)

Dive into the refreshing world of citrus with our Frozen Limeade Ice Cream Floats! This recipe combines the tangy goodness of limeade concentrate with creamy ice cream, creating an explosion of flavors that’s perfect for cooling off on a hot day. With ingredients like lime juice, Minute Maid limeade, this is your favorite childhood treat. Let’s make your taste buds sing with a refreshing punch of flavor!

Limeade Ice Cream Floats FAQs:

1. What kind of ice cream should I use? Vanilla ice cream is classic, but feel free to experiment with flavors like coconut or lemon.

2. Can this be made ahead of time? It’s best enjoyed immediately, but you can prepare the limeade mixture ahead and store it in the fridge.

My best friend and I set up a table, got the lemonade mix, lots of pitchers and ice (from her house and mine), and we even froze some homemade popsicles for sale!

Tips & Tricks For Making Limeade:

  • Using a Ninja Blender will yield a smoother texture compared to a regular blender. If using a regular blender, blend a bit longer to ensure proper mixing.
  • For an even cooler treat, pour the limeade mixture into ice cube trays and freeze. Add these limeade ice cubes to the float!
  • Add a few drops of green food coloring to the limeade mixture for a more vibrant color.

Variations For This Fun Treat:

  • Frozen Limeade Margarita Float: Add tequila to the limeade mixture along with the Grand Marnier.
  • Citrus Burst: Add a splash of orange juice for an extra layer of citrus flavor.
  • Creamy Limeade Dream: Use lime sherbet instead of ice cream for a more intense lime flavor.

Where to Serve This Drink:

These floats are ideal for pool parties, barbecues, or any summer gathering. They also make for an excellent dessert drink for a Mexican-themed dinner!

What to do with leftovers:

Store any leftover limeade mixture in a large pitcher in the refrigerator for up to 3 days. When ready to serve again, just pour over ice cream!

Topping Options:

  • Garnish with a lime wedge for a fresh twist.
  • Add a sprig of mint for an extra refreshing touch.
  • Sprinkle some grated lime zest on top of the ice cream for a zingy finish.

Frozen Limeade Punch

This delish punch is made with a few ingredients in only 5 minutes. I’d recommend for a cold treat on a warm summer day, or even a treat for movie night!

Why This Recipe Works:

The combination of tangy limeade concentrate and creamy ice cream is an age-old pairing that never fails. The lime juice cuts through the richness of the ice cream, providing balance. And with the ingredients being easily adjustable to meet daily values for any calorie diet, this recipe can be tweaked to fit a variety of preferences and dietary needs.
