Red Velvet Ice Cream Float with Whipped Cream in a glass

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 a delicious match up with vanilla ice cream.

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

It’s a fun, quick and easy dessert.
