Recipe: Peach floats

Updated: 08-18-2010

Dietitian's tip: This refreshing beverage is made with club soda — a carbonated water that is the forerunner of sugary soda pop. This float is a good source of calcium.


Serves: 4

  • 1 can (15 ounces) peaches, drained, except for 1/2 cup juice
  • 4 cups vanilla ice milk
  • 32 ounces club soda or seltzer water
  • 1/2 cup reduced-fat whipped topping
  • Ground nutmeg, to taste


In a small bowl, mash the peaches with a fork. Divide the mashed peaches into 4 glasses (12 ounces each). Add to each glass 2 tablespoons of the peach juice and 1 cup ice milk. Pour 1 cup soda or seltzer into the glasses. Top each drink with 2 tablespoons whipped topping and a dusting of nutmeg. Serve immediately.
