With summer fast approaching (along with some pregnancy cravings) I can’t help but wish and want some ice cream floats! Except … when you’re expecting you can’t just dive into any whim. So I have been considering ways to re-create my favorite refreshment without overdoing the calories and sugar. As most of you know by now, I shop regularly at our local Walmart store. That’s where I stumbled across Halo Top Ice Cream! You wouldn’t believe that it is low-calorie, low-sugar, high in protein and uses “only” the best ALL-NATURAL ingredients!
I honestly wondered how it would taste like and decided to give one flavor a try — their red velvet. I was blown away!!! There’s no other word to describe it, it’s super creamy I swear I felt I was indulging in a regular ice cream. I could literally eat the entire pint and not feel guilty in any way. Finally, a healthy ice cream that actually tastes just like ice cream! After a further look into Halo Top, I discovered that they have a total of 17 flavors – they have fun flavors like birthday cake, peanut butter, red velvet, chocolate chip cookie dough, etc. as well as all-time favorite classics like vanilla, chocolate, mint, and more! From there, I’ve decided to give my favorite refreshment a spin.
Let’s be honest, there’s nothing better than a delicious “guilt-free” ice cream float on a smoldering hot summer day. Except, floats have been limited to the usual choice of root beer and vanilla ice cream. Not this time — I’ve replaced the classic choice in this FUN float recipe (+ more) to bring you my NEW favorite ice cream and soda combo.
This super-easy to follow recipe and instruction will surely satisfy any sweet tooth in no time! Time to re-invent the classic and give this irresistible treat a whirl — I promise you, the whole family will love it too! If you have kids around this is a big plus because you can do this refreshment with them.
