Creamsicle Float

This Creamsicle Float tastes just like the childhood popsicle…only in float form.  These are a fun dessert for a hot summer day!

Woah.  Talk about a blast from the past!  As a kid, I vividly remember always having creamsicle pops in the freezer.  I also remember fighting with my sister over who could have the last one whenever the box was almost empty.  Good times!  So a couple weeks ago, my wife and I made root beer floats for a fun summer weekend activity.  We got to talking about ice cream ideas, and then it hit me…what about a Creamsicle Float!?  I knew I needed to make this…and soon!  So I grabbed some International Delight Cold Stone Creamery Creamer and whipped up a quick and easy vanilla ice cream.  Then I just filled a glass with this delicious ice cream treat and topped it off with orange soda.  The taste was absolutely amazing!  It took me back to my childhood, and it was the perfect treat for a hot summer afternoon.

While I used International Delight’s Cold Stone Creamery Sweet Cream for the vanilla ice cream, I also noticed that International Delight has come out with several new flavors in the Cold Stone Creamery line.  I think the Founder’s Favorite may soon become my all-time favorite International Delight creamer! This isn’t just a single creamer flavor…it includes brownie, caramel, pecan, and fudge flavors all in one.  With that bottle of deliciousness in my refrigerator, I’m pretty sure I have a reason to get up early and get a pot of coffee brewing!  But I digress as there are 2 more new International Delight flavors inspired by Cold Stone Creamery.  Hot for Cookie is like adding the flavors of warm chocolate-chip cookies right into your coffee, while Churro Caramel includes the tasty combination of melted ice cream, caramel, and sweet cinnamon.  I think it’s safe to say that one (if not all 3) of these new International Delight Cold Stone Creamery flavors will be in my refrigerator at all times.  Not only will these be delicious in my morning coffee, but my mind is racing with all of the other delicious treats that I can create with these creamers!

Ingredients

  • Orange Soda

For the Sweet Cream Ice Cream

  • 1 cup International Delight Cold Stone Creamery Sweet Cream creamer
  • 4 large egg yolks
  • 3 cups heavy cream
  • ¼ cup granulated sugar
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract

Instructions

  • In a medium sauce pan, heat the International Delight creamer on low until it just begins to simmer. Stir occasionally to prevent creamer from scorching.
  • While the creamer is heating, whisk the egg yolks in a medium bowl. Once creamer begins to simmer, gradually pour it into the egg yolks and whisk to combine. (Note: add the hot creamer to the egg yolk mixture very slowly, stirring constantly with a whisk the entire time.)
  • Return the mixture to the saucepan and cook over medium-low heat, stirring constantly, for about 3-4 minutes, or until a thermometer registers 170-175 degrees.
  • Remove from heat and stir in heavy cream, sugar, and vanilla extract. Strain the mixture through a fine-mesh strainer into a clean container. Cover strained liquid with plastic wrap, pressing the plastic directly onto the surface of the mixture. Refrigerate until very cold, or overnight.
  • Add chilled liquid mixture to ice cream maker, and follow manufacturer's instructions.
  • Place 2 large scoops of ice cream in a glass, and top with orange soda.
