Red Velvet Ice Cream Float

Can you guess what 2 ingredients make up the red velvet color?

Here’s a hint, neither one is soda pop.

Another hint, both have antioxidants associated with them.

Ok, here’s the answer;

The deep red velvet color is made with 2 ingredients, 100% pomegranate juice and double chocolate syrup.

The combination of these two flavors is an amazingly delicious match up with vanilla ice cream too.

The taste may be best described as tangy, rich, sweet and repeat.

It’s a fun, quick and easy dessert.

Let’s check out the ingredients.

100% pomegranate juice, double chocolate syrup, vanilla ice cream, whipped cream (or Cool Whip topping), and candy sprinkles (red and pink based colors look nice with the red velvet).

Here’s how to make it.

In a large measuring cup with a pouring spout, add the pomegranate juice.

Add the chocolate sauce…

…stir together until incorporated.

In serving glasses, add the ice cream.

Pour the red velvet mixture as close to the inside edge of the glass as possible…

…so that the scoops of ice cream are still showing (if the serving glasses are similar to this martini glass).

Top with whipped cream or Cool Whip topping.

Garnish with candy sprinkles.  Serve right away…

…and enjoy.
