Coconut Coke Floats Recipe

After making our super simple dairy-free coconut ice cream, Ella got the wonderful idea to make Coke Floats with it!

A traditional Coke Float has a creamy, carbonated texture with a caramel-vanilla flavor from the mix of Coca-Cola and vanilla ice cream. Our Coke Float is very similar, only instead of a caramel-vanilla flavor, it has a caramel-coconut flavor that gives this classic drink a special, summery flavor.

Because our homemade coconut ice cream has a soft serve-like texture, it mixes into the Coke easier. No more aggressively stirring your drink and waiting for your ice cream to melt to achieve that perfect creamy, luscious consistency. (You still have to stir it, so it does stay pretty until you’re ready to mix the ice cream into the soda.)

Of course, you don’t have to use Coca-Cola to make a coconut ice cream float. You can use Root Beer, Cream Soda, Dr Pepper, Sprite, or anything you think would taste great with the coconut flavor.

I don’t advise making these Coke Floats in advance – they are definitely best served fresh! But you will need to make the ice cream about 2-4 hours in advance of wanting to make these ice cream floats. (Alternatively, you can use a store-bought coconut ice cream.)

To bring your Coke Floats over-the-top, you can add some chocolate syrup, maraschino cherries, or your favorite flavored syrup. Ella loves adding sprinkles to hers.

You can even make this a cocktail by adding some coconut rum (or your other favorite type of alcohol) to the Coke before adding the coconut ice cream.
