Cream Soda Peach Floats
This has been a wild summer. Going into the season, I had plans for recipes and projects that would make the most of the summer bounty and warm weather. Well, sometimes plans are meant to be broken. Instead of getting bogged down with thinking about all the things I haven’t made time for, I’m going to focus on the great and amazing things that have happened: moving, traveling and new babies.
Back in June, I had a new little nephew born and he has been such a sweet ray of sunshine! Today I’m here with a few of my blogging friends to celebrate our friend Courtney who is expecting her baby boy in just a few weeks.
I can’t think of a better thing to celebrate than a summer of new, sweet little babies!
I met Courtney a couple of years ago at Mixed and became fast friends. Since then, we’ve gotten the opportunity to hang out a few times in our great state of Ohio. She is one of the most genuinely kind people I have met. I am so happy for her and Will. They have such an amazing adventure in front of them and I can’t wait to hear all about it.
In celebration for their new little guy, I am serving Courtney up a quick and easy baby-friendly drink/dessert: Cream Soda Peach Floats. Summer is about simplicity – as is being 8 months pregnant. No one has time for fussy desserts when you’re pregnant in an Ohio heat wave.
I hope you enjoy it, Courtney!
I’m sending lots of love and prayers your way and we are all so excited to hear news of your sweet arrival.

Hi Emily! It was a pleasure meeting you through this virtual shower. I’m so glad I did – your blog is fabulous! I love the modern, clean feel and the amazing recipes you have. Thank you so much for joining the party. I wish I lived near Courtney so that I could hang out with her all the time – she’s seriously one of the sweetest people I know. Even though it’s only 9:00 a.m., I could go for a glass or two of your floats. Cheers!
Thanks so much for including me, Nancy! And thank you for organizing this shower – I’m so glad we could come together to celebrate Courtney!
These look heavenly. A great twist on a classic!
I love this idea! What a great twist on a classic.
Preach, sister. I certainly can’t be fussing with turning on the oven these days! I have been craving floats, so this is absolutely perfect. Thank you so much for celebrating me and the little man today! I feel so loved and am so thankful for all of you. I’m so glad we got the chance to meet and hang out more this past year!
Yay! We all love you, my dear and are hoping and praying for the very best for you and your family. You are truly a gem and your new little guy is one lucky little baby to have a mama like you 🙂 xoxo
Em, you’re the drink queen! I don’t care much for cream soda but I’m so ready to dive into one of these floats!
THanks, Mel! This is the kind of drink I think we all need right now – refreshing and super fast!
Here’s where two wonderful ingredients come together to make something greater than the two alone! Perfect as a drink or dessert. Delicious, Emily!
