Unlike the ice cream float you might have loved as a kid that consisted of simply soda and a scoop of ice cream, this treat introduces a distinctly tropical flavor. Created by Spoonful of Flavor, the Key Lime Coconut Ice Cream Float combines the taste of classic key lime pie with some coconut as well. This is a seasonally appropriate dessert to enjoy this summer before the heat breaks and fall truly arrives.

To recreate this sweet beverage at home, you will need sparkling water, freshly squeezed key lime or lime juice, sugar and shredded toasted coconut for the topping. It also includes homemade ice cream made out of heavy cream, full fat coconut milk, sugar and more shredded toasted coconut.
