When I was a little girl, nothing made me happier than a yummy root beer float. My parents would make them (and also what they called a “black cow” that used cola rather than root beer) for my sister and I, and we viewed them as the most special of all the sweet treats. As an adult, my affinity for ice cream floats has remained, but I’ve found myself wanting to take the traditional root beer and vanilla ice cream combo up a notch. I decided to do a little experimenting with the Italian Escapes™ collection from San Bernardo ice cream and different sodas, and the results were glorious.
I feel safe about letting my kids indulge in San Bernardo ice cream because all the ice creams are rBST Free, contain 20% Less Sugar and Fat, and are made only with All-Natural ingredients. Compared to other ice cream brands, SB is guilt free on another level!
The two recipes I’m sharing here are mine and my kids’ favorites (tiramisu for me, spumoni for them), simple to make, and pretty much define delicious fun.
Tiramisu Ice Cream Float
makes 1 serving
2 scoops San Bernardo Tiramisu ice cream
1/2 cup coffee, chilled
1-1/2 cup cream soda, chilled
cookie or wafer for garnish
Place Tiramisu ice cream in a glass. Pour coffee and cream soda over ice cream. Top with whipped cream and garnish with a cookie or wafer.
This recipe represents a classic treat that is simple, but the San Bernardo ice cream takes it to the next level with the creamy, rich, natural Tiramisu flavor. Nothing can compare to this delicious Italian flavoring!

Spumoni Strawberry Ice Cream Float
makes 1 serving
2 scoops San Bernardo Spumoni ice cream
1 cup strawberry soda, chilled
1 cup cream soda, chilled
strawberries for garnish
Place Spumoni ice cream in a glass. Pour chilled strawberry and cream soda over ice cream. Garnish with strawberries.
These floats are easy for the kids to help make as well. We can whip them up quickly, and enjoy the delicious indulgence thanks to San Bernardo’s quality, trustworthy ingredients.
These unique, super decadent twists on the root beer float couldn’t be easier, and they are so good. My four-year-old told me the spumoni float was her “ice cream dream come true,” and honestly, I kind of feel the same way. We love the unique flavors that San Bernardo offers, and how perfect the Italian Escapes™ collection is for anytime of the year! We also love that all of their ice cream contains no artificial flavors or artificial colors and no high fructose corn syrup. And I just adore their take on my favorite Italian dessert, tiramisu, and the rich marsala wine and mascarpone cheese flavors throughout every bite. Their Spumoni is a flavor explosion, with chocolate swirled with pistachio, strawberry and vanilla ice creams, mixed with cherries and almond pieces. We also love Sea Salt Caramel and Quad Chocolate – so yummy.
We’re also big fans of the San Bernardo story, and their wonderful ethnic and specialty flavors. You can purchase San Bernardo ice cream via their website and pick your personal favorites from one of their 4 different collections of creamy deliciousness. All of their flavors are unique and forward thinking and provide a cool, modern spin on old favorites. Woot!
