Feel free to substitute your favorite strongly flavored fruits such as apricot, peach or strawberries for the raspberries. Coordinate your favorite flavored ice cream accordingly!
- 1⁄3 cup raspberries (or your favorite fruit)
- 3⁄4 cup milk
- 1⁄8 teaspoon almond extract
- 2 scoops strawberry ice cream (or your choice of flavor)
- In a 16 oz glass blend raspberries, milk, and almond extract.
- Top with ice cream.
- Add milk to fill glass.
This is a tasty float. I blended a little raspberry sherbet that I had on hand in with the raspberries/milk mixture. This combination tasted great with the strawberry ice cream. I also loved the addition of almond extract.
This made a beautiful float with black raspberry ice cream. However, there is no sugar in the raspberry/milk mixture, and you do not blend the ice cream in with the milk, so the fruit/milk mixture does not taste all that great. Either the ice cream should be blended or a tsp of sugar should be added to the milk and fruit.
