Print Friendly and PDF
Long weekend coming up and some hot hot weather. It is time to host picnics, parties, potlucks, give chewie is super short haircut, dust up the skirts and dresses and what not. Though most likely Hubbs will head to train for his upcoming Rainier Hike on the snow covered mountains :/. I might just end up bugging everyone around by calling them at random times in the day.  

The heat calls for some Ice cream floats!

How about this Orange Cream float

Add Vanilla Bean Ice cream scoops to glasses that have been chilled for half an hour. I used So Delicious No sugar Added coconut milk Vanilla Ice cream.
Add fresh orange juice. Sweet and ripe oranges work best.
Add in Sparkling water or very chilled water.
Serve immediately!

You can also make this with pureed ripe mango! Slurrp!

Or Make these Mango Lassi Smoothies.
or Easy Chocolate and Mocha Milk Shakes!
