There are two things that I love in life: refreshing drinks and desserts, so a recipe that has both of them is pretty much my vision of happiness. Enter this Key Lime Pie Drink Recipe. It is basically a float that is the perfect mix of dessert and refreshment.
Floats have been one of my all time favorite drinks. They are super refreshing and bubbly and also have some ice cream which makes them even better (and bubblier) However this time instead of making a traditional float I decide to try my hand at making a dessert one, and the result was so good that I knew I had to share it with you.
Why is this so delicious? Well basically because it’s packed with all the citrusy flavor of the key limes + it has the creamy coolness of the vanilla ice cream (that tastes almost like the meringue!) I especially love how refreshing it is so if you are looking for something to cool you off this is definitely it.
And please let’s talk for a hot second about how cool is that the floats magically creates a million and one bubbles! If you’ve never made a float before it’s basically a controlled explosion of sweet meets soda, which results in the carbonated drink creating teeny tiny bubbles. In order for the magic to happen, you need to add the ice cream fist and then slowly pour in the soda. Works like a charm every single time and the little ones rave about the homemade “experiment”.
Once you have your floats ready to go, garnish them with a couple of lime slices (key lime pie float after all my friends!) and a paper straw for a retro, nostalgic twist. Then is just a matter of sipping it while sitting on your porch or maybe right beside a pool or lake.
