Tea for Tuesday - Gluten Free Coffee Floats Recipe

A grown-up treat for a hot summer day...

Ok, the whipped cream got a little tipped, but doesn't it look ooooooh. soooooo. goooood.

Quick and easy.  Simple and delicious.  And gluten free.

SPH Coffee Floats
Ice cream
Cream/milk/non-dairy creamer
Whipped cream

Put a couple scoops of ice cream into good sized mugs.  Fill mug 1/2 way with HOT coffee, and add creamy stuff til mug is almost completely full.  Top with whipped cream and serve.

Just a quick note about the ice cream here.  Most flavors of most brands of ice cream, by my own research, are generally gluten free.  That being said, I know for a fact that Edy's and Great Value brands are safe for every flavor that doesn't involve a baked item (like brownies, cookies, etc.) stirred in.  For the photo above, I used Edy's Chocolate-Vanilla.

Make these for the grown-ups with a shot of Kahlua, or for the kiddos with hot chocolate instead of the coffee.

What a fun and unusual dessert to trot out after a cook out this summer!  Enjoy!
