Strawberry Patch Frost

It's Taste of Home Tuesday! It's been crazy hot here in New Hampshire, and one of our favorite ways too cool off has been with ice cream floats.  I made amazing homemade fresh strawberry ice cream, and I searched for a recipe to use it in and found these Strawberry Patch Frost on the Taste of Home site.

Floats are so easy to put together.  This one starts with a little strawberry jam in the bottom of the glass, mixed with a little water.  I made it with plain this time, but I've got some strawberry jalapeno that I think would be awesome too.  Add your sliced strawberries, ice cream and heavy cream.

Next, pour chilled sparkling water over the top.  If you're not a fan of sparkling water, you could definitely use a lemon-lime soda instead. There are also some "hard" sparkling waters hitting the market that I think would be awesome.

These could easily be made with any berry that you like.  My blueberry bushes are getting ready to start producing, our blackberries are loaded with fruit that will ripen in August.  We'll definitely be enjoying versions of this float all summer long!

Thank you so much to the Taste of Home Test Kitchen for this awesome recipe! Do you have an amazing recipe you'd like to submit to Taste of Home? Follow this link and learn how! Want to apply to be a Volunteer Field Editor?  Check out the requirements and apply here.
