How to Make Ice Cream Float Popsicles
We still have a few more weeks of Summer left and it is hotter than ever outside! This year, while hiding out in air conditioning and hanging with my six kids and my awesome nannying niece, we came up with these fun concoctions. I had just started the second trimester and was craving yummy delicious Coke floats. One day, as we were making those (during nap-time … all good things happen during nap-time, just kidding) we got the idea to make some fun popsicles for the kids to enjoy later.
My niece decided that we needed some freshly whipped cream to top off these ice cream float popsicles.

After the whipped cream was made, we put them in first into the Popsicle Molds.
Then we added some vanilla ice-cream and topped it off with Coke. We didn’t have any root beer in our house that day, so we decided to use a can of coke, instead, to make Coke Ice Cream Floats and transform them into popsicles.
We froze them for a couple of hours and voila! Your very own Ice Cream Float Popsicles! Enjoy!
Ice Cream Float Popsicles
- 1 Cup of Heavy Whipping Cream
- ½ tsp sugar
- ½ gallon of vanilla ice cream
- 1 Can of Soda (Coke, Creme Soda or Root Beer)
- Tovolo Groovy Ice Pop Molds – Yellow
Start off by making your whipped cream. Pour cream into a large bowl and mix on high adding a small amount of sugar (you can add more or less than I said, depending on your tastes preferences). Whip until peaks form.
Add a scoop of the whipped cream to each of the popsicle molds. Then, add a scoop of vanilla ice cream filling the popsicle mold ¾ of the way full. Finally, add some soda (we chose Coke) until it the ice cream rises to the top and gets all foamy. Be careful! Don’t fill it too fast or it might overflow and make a big mess!
