STRAWBERRY WATERMELON FLOATS

i love a root beer float so why not switch up the game and do a fruit juice float! we made these with vanilla ice cream but you could 100% do a dairy free option with coconut milk ice cream that would also be delicious. these barely require a recipe because they could be made so many different ways. it’s the perfect thing to make with a pint of very ripe berries that are about to go bad or half of a watermelon that’s taking up too much room in your fridge. – joanie

what you’ll need:
makes 4 servings

• 4 cups strawberries, stems removed
• 4 cups chopped seedless watermelon
• 1 bottle sparkling white grape juice or any sparkling juice, the Izze grapefruit flavor is also good with this!
• vanilla ice cream
• mint as garnish

• blend the strawberries and watermelon in the blender until smooth (no added liquid needed!) and then strain the puree into a separate bowl.

• divide the pureed fruit between the four glasses, add a scoop of ice cream and top with sparkling juice. top off each glass with a little more ice cream and garnish with mint!

    Ash says:

    I’m making these tonight. Do you strain the purée so that it’s just the liquid left and use that for the drink? Or do you use the purée left over after the liquid he been removed?

    bri says:

    we strained them so that the strawberry seeds didn’t get into the drink! you can discard everything you strained out. i think you could skip that step if you wanted! let us know how they turn out! -joanie
