Cherry Ice Cream Soda

Now I’ve always figured if you’re going to eat dessert, you might as well see if you can have some fruit while you’re at it.  And there is no shortage of delicious fruity desserts in this world.  French Apple Pie, Strawberry Lemonade Popsicles , Blueberry Cheesecake, to name a few. 

Soda “fixings”

But a Cherry Ice Cream Soda has them all beat when it comes to simple and fun.  And with summer coming, the cool and refreshing factor can’t be beat!

The idea for this comes from the Chocolate Ice Cream Sodas my dad taught me to make as a kid. He had spent summers in a small Iowa town with an old fashioned soda fountain. We’d pass through every year on trips to see our grandparents and soon we were making them at home too.

If you’ve seen much of this blog, you’ll know I’m a big proponent of tart cherry juice—which I buy as a concentrate and try to drink daily.  A superfood full of antioxidants and anti-inflammatory compounds, I add it into hot and cold beverages every chance I get.  

One more reason to get healthy!

    Hi Inger, cherry has to be one of my favorite fruits, will definitely have to make this. I forgot all about these soda’s we used to have them like you as kids. Have a great week-end!

    I haven’t had an ice cream soda for ages!! I made a cup of tart cherry concentrate the other day for a recipe and have quite a bit leftover! Ice cream soda, here I come!

    this sounds amazing! the only kind of float or ice cream soda i’ve ever had is a dr pepper float, and while that’s delicious, i think this would be even better!
