Black & Blue Floats

Today’s float is the “Black and Blue”! It is a combination of Blackberry carbonated fruit juice and vanilla ice cream, topped with low-fat whipped cream and blueberries! Despite it’s name, this float is pretty painless. :)

What I love about this float is there is NO soda in it. This is a great healthier version of the traditional float with yummy blackberry and blueberry.

What I also love about these is that they are also Patriotic with hues of red, white, and blue! Great for celebrating 4th of July with the family with a yummy, cool treat!

So break out your frosted glass and have a “black & blue” ! (No pain involved!)

    When I feel like splurging at Chipotle, I always get a Blackberry Izze with my bowl. :) So yummy, especially for a non-soda drinker like myself.

  3. Mmm, those blueberries look gorgeous! Great pictures! And those floats look so yummy too 😀
