Sweet and refreshing, this tropical treat is the perfect summer treat



  1. Put several scoops of ice cream into 8 large glasses.
  2. Slowly pour pineapple soda over the ice cream, letting the foam settle before adding more soda.
  3. Top with whipped cream. Can also garnish with a slice of pineapple, if desired.


I highly recommend using my homemade pineapple ice cream recipe for these floats.

Try topping your float with minced, candied pineapple or chunks of fresh pineapple. Serve in a pineapple for an extra tropical feel.

Have Fun with It!

While this pineapple float is delicious the way it is, you can mix things up a bit if you like. Try adding a circle of grilled pineapple or a maraschino cherry as a garnish. Or add a splash of coconut milk for a piña colada float. If you don’t have pineapple soda available or want a fresher taste, use pineapple juice with a splash of club soda instead.
