Strawberry Ice Cream Sodas

strawberry ice cream soda recipe

I feel like I say this every time I sit down to write a blog post, but these ice cream sodas just might be my favorite thing I’ve made lately. I had some beautiful berries and was in the mood for ice cream (not to mention I got these cute old-fashioned milkshakes glasses on sale), so I put them all together into this ridiculously delicious and refreshing ice cream soda. It’s like summer in a (really cute) glass. I think that these would be so fun to have at an end of summer barbecue. Or on a rainy weekend when you are going a little stir crazy and really want to be sitting on the beach instead of watching football (I’m soooo not ready for football yet, doesn’t it feel like it gets earlier and earlier every year?). Either way, these are perfect for either occasion.

My sister gave me the tip to add a little strawberry jam to my strawberry sauce. It sounds a little weird, but it makes the strawberry more strawberry-y. If you have extra, it goes really well on pancakes or drizzled on a scone.

I found these cute old fashioned soda glasses at Crate and Barrel for $1.97, score! You can use any large glass. Slice a strawberry almost all the way through and attach to the side of the glass.

    This looks and sounds amazing! I might just make the strawberry sauce to keep around for breakfast uses on pancakes or waffles!

    Hey Heather, that’s a great idea. Kids love strawberries and storing this strawberry sauce will actually increase their appetite.

    Wow Bree, these look soooo good. Especially since temperatures here in Vancouver are almost 90F 🙂

    Gorgeous! I don’t think I’ve ever had an ice cream soda, might have to rectify that.

    Say what? You need to rectify that now!
