Old Fashioned Strawberry Soda
This was such a fun drink to make! It’s a milkshake that’s spiked with soda and loaded with fresh, sweet strawberries! Whoa! It’s time to kick back, turn off the electronics, and just enjoy the sweeter things in life. These old fashioned strawberry sodas are the perfect drink to cool down with on a warm summer day.
My daughter always orders a “pink soda” when we go to Chick-fil-A. That would be a Fruit Punch with Sprite. I wonder if they would make me a strawberry milkshake and add some Sprite. I’ll have to ask next time I go… That would be perfect!!
- 1 cup milk of choice
- 1 cup strawberries, fresh or frozen
- 1 cup ice cream
- 1 cup Ginger Ale
- Put the milk, strawberries, and ice cream into a blender and process until smooth.
- Pour into two glasses and top off with the Ginger Ale.
- Enjoy on a warm day!
This delicious treat would be perfect for one of these hot afternoons. My friends in Central California and Phoenix- I’m talking to you! I don’t know how you do it… 100 degrees at 8pm is CRAZY!
I hope that you are able to hide next to the air conditioner vent and enjoy this simple and delicious snack. Or, in my case, lunch.
But, whatever… I won’t judge.
I just want to point out that these Old Fashioned Sodas are only colored with the strawberries. The ones I picked were so juicy and red all the way through. There were no white centers and no tart ones. If you happen to have less than desirable strawberries, you can add some sugar to sweeten it and some food coloring to make it a bit more pink.
Stay Cool and enjoy the 100 days of Summer!!
