The Perfect End of Summer Treat: Fruity Sorbet Floats!

Thursday, August 10, 2017

I've had this idea in my head for quite a while and finally on one, hot day decided I had to make them. I'm so glad I did, because they were perfect for an end-of-summer treat for the fam. Cold, creamy, fruity sorbet is made into a float with the addition of grapefruit soda! It's a delicious combination and the pretty colors were a nice surprise, too.

The end of summer reminds me of ripe, delicious fruits, so I had to incorporate some lovely peaches and strawberries in these floats.

They make the perfect accompaniment to this dessert.

These can be made with sorbet, like I've done here, or a sherbet or gelato would taste just as good. The only difference is that sorbets are made with sugar and fruit while sherbet and gelato contain milk for a creamier product.

I'm using grapefruit soda but you can use any clear citrus soda that you like.

  • Fruit sorbet in your choice of flavor (I'm using a mango, a raspberry, and a lemon)
  • Grapefruit soda (like Fresca or Squirt)

1. Place 2-3 scoops of sorbet into a glass.

2. Fill with grapefruit soda.

3. Garnish and serve.

These make a lovely and refreshing treat after a long, hot day.

I hope you enjoy them as much as we did! :)


Will you be trying this fruity treat? What flavor would you make? I love to read your comments!
