Coke float makes a classic drink recipe. Made of ice cream and Coca-Cola, a Coke float is a definite favorite.
Yesterday afternoon Little Buddy and I had been busily going about the day when out of the wild blue yonder he said, “I think we need a Coke float, Mama.” Now, I’m not a very spontaneous person. I like to have a plan for the day and pretty much stick with it and I hadn’t planned on making Coke floats, but when I saw his face with his eyes dancing with excitement and a hint of that I sure hope she doesn’t say no mingled in there somewhere I decided what they hay. Why not make a Coke float?
When I said, “Sure!” You would have thought a million dollars had floated down from the sky.
Sometimes it’s just not that hard to impress nine year old, I guess.
He helped me gather together the few things we needed: favorite Coca-Cola glasses, straws, scoop for the ice cream, ice cream and Cokes, of course.
Within just a few minutes we were sipping (okay slurping may be a better word for it) on our Coke floats and chatting away about all sorts of good stuff. I started thinking this spontaneous side of me just might be the way to go every once in a while!
Classic Coke Float
- 1 scoop vanilla ice cream
- 1/2 (12-ounce) can Coca-Cola
- Place scoop of vanilla ice cream in the bottom of a tall glass.
- Pour ½ can of Coca-Cola over the top of the ice cream.
- Insert a straw and enjoy!

I haven’t had a coke OR a float in….more than a month. I am seriously craving a coke. Classic, none of the diet stuff. Oh dear…
Oooh I miss Root Beer Floats!! I’ve never tried Coke Floats!!
Sometimes the simplest things are the best! I’m drinking Dr. Pepper from a can right now, but it could use a scoop of ice cream!
I can almost tell you exactly when. Probably the day after Christmas, 2010. See, my sister knows I have a PASSION for Coke in the little bottles. A passion I never indulge cause, well, it’s not diet and I would drink two a day!
So, she sends me a carefully wrapped six pack of those little bottles for Christmas each year…and each year I use at least one (OK, probably more than one) to make myself my favorite, better than root beer float. I never get to it on Christmas day but I’m betting I had one the day after. Now sort of wishing I honored that obsession; I’m craving one for breakfast and yes, it’s all your fault! 🙂
Not had one of these in 25 years! About to have one now. #sweetmemories
Hope you enjoy the coke float and the memories!
I love Dr Pepper floats! Yum!
I love Coke Floats, Dr. Pepper, Root Beer floats, or we used to call them “Frosted Cokes”…either way they’re wonderful…in fact I’m having one right now before I go to bed!
Oh i love making these! The kids love them, but honestly, we probably make them more for us!
Thanks! Me and my mom, grandma were studying on our Bible. When we finished we wanted some ice-cream so I looked this up. Really good. 100% recommend it
I’m so happy you enjoyed your coke float. Thanks!
I love coke floats, they were my favourite as a child I can’t wait to give them my child when she’s older. Honestly everybody should try a coke float and suck all the cream at the bottom of the glass!! YUMMMMMYYYYYYY🤪
I fully agree, Kris!
Awesome post! ~^^
I’m thinking of making a frosty vanilla coke for dessert😋
