dr pepper vanilla float popsicles
whatever your plans for the 4th of July, you will want to include these Dr. Pepper Vanilla Float Popsicles
I’m vanilla over chocolate.
and Dr, Pepper over cola or root beer,
and I have always loved the 4th of July even before it became my wedding anniversary.
What could be more fun than a parade of cattle, a rodeo, and sparklers. Lots and lots of sparklers. The first few years Ian and I were married, we would spend our anniversary at the Ritz Carlton in San Francisco. Now it’s more about the kids and the local festivities than anything else.
But really, I wouldn’t have it any other way.
Water balloon fights, burgers on the grill, fireworks in the street, s’mores, and Dr. Pepper Vanilla Float popsicles.
Have you tried Dr Pepper Vanilla Float® yet? If not, you need to get on that fast. It is a limited edition summer flavor, and it tastes just like it sounds. And who doesn’t love an ice cream float? Only they are not easy to make for a crowd, and even less easy to enjoy outside while watching fireworks.
But popsicles are meant to be eaten outside, and Dr Pepper Vanilla Float® was meant to be turned into an ice cream float. It practically says so on the can.
- 12 ounces Dr Pepper Vanilla Float®
- 1 1/2 cups vanilla bean ice cream
- pour a little bit of soda into the bottom of each popsicle mold (just to fill the tip)
- evenly divide the ice cream among your molds (it helps if the ice cream is soft)
- top with the remaining soda, adding just a little at a time, waiting until the foam subsides before adding more)
- place top on popsicle molds and add sticks
** to make the popsicles with paper cups, snip the top in a few palces to make peeling the cup off the popsicle easy, and you will want to freeze your vanilla float pops for about an hour, and then add sticks – the sticks will float to the top otherwise
you can find the limited edition flavors Dr Pepper Cherry® or Dr Pepper Vanilla Float® at Safeway and Albertsons
