Sassy Sweets: Frozen Cherry Coke Float Zipzicles

Print Friendly and PDF
When I got two packages of Zipzicles in the mail to test out, no one was happier than I was!  I'm sure you remember when you were a kid and you were at a friend's party and they pulled out a case, literally a case of pops like these that tasted like fruit but were anything but?  Needless to say the mama of the house never let us have them at home. 

These zipzicles allow you to make your own - filled with fruit or other tasty options.  You decide exactly what goes in it!  And, of course, being me, I wanted to make something a bit different.  When I saw the warning on the zipzicle that said "Warning!  Do not use carbonated beverages as they expand during freezing" I couldn't think of anything better to try than cherry coke floats.

Sorry, I am that terrible kid that when someone tells me not to do something, I automatically want to do it more.  So, I went about making the floats.  I filled the zipzicles up just below the "fill line", and pushed all the air out.  I had no problems with my "carbonated beverage" although they did expand and air did fill up the top.  As long as you get all the air out before they freeze, I'm thinking you will have no problem.
Frozen Cherry Coke Float Zipzicles
Serves:  12
2 cups cherry coke
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/4 cup sweetened condensed milk
1/4 cup fat free half and half

In a large bowl whisk cherry coke, vanilla extract, sweetened condensed milk, and half and half until fully combined.  Carefully pour into zipzicles just below the "fill line" and place in a container standing up (a large glass works perfectly for this).  Freeze for 4-6 hours, until hard.  Before serving, run the opening under hot water for easier opening.
