Old Fashioned Ice Cream Soda 🥤


I dream about being in an ice cream shop back in the 50’s wearing a Pink Ladies Jacket and dancing the jitterbug. Lol. I kind of belong back in that era. But my childhood growing up in the 70’s and 80’s was pretty cool also. Especially since it included ice cream sodas!

My Grandma(my Dad’s mom) lived to 103. And her diet wasn’t high protein and low carbs, that’s for sure. She always had very cold cans of coke in her fridge and vanilla ice cream in her freezer. After dinner she would make my sisters and I ice cream sodas. They were sooo good!

I don’t usually have soda in the house, because I don’t want any of us to drink it. When I do, the boys always ask for ice cream sodas.

My grandma used a tall frosted glass just like this👉🏼 https://amzn.to/2r7GkP1

and served it with a long metal spoon👉🏼 https://amzn.to/2r9dPRc

and straw👉🏼 https://amzn.to/2raDaJL

I scale it down to half the size cause that’s plenty! Still have to serve it with the straw and spoon. 😋

Fill your glass of choice with several scoops of vanilla ice cream. She certainly didn’t skimp out on the ice cream. Open a cold can of coke and pour over the ice cream until it’s filled to the top(she also made it with root beer and it was GOOD!)

That is it. It’s delicious and comforting. I hope it brings you back to a happy place in your childhood.  Enjoy!
