Treat yourself! These simple shakes and floats really sweeten the season.

As the ultimate summertime indulgence, ice cream floats and milkshakes possess that dreamy, throwback quality, reminding us of fond childhood memories and transporting us back to simpler times. In search of the crème de la crème, we collected and taste-tested three recipes that highlight the region’s best dairy, bubbly, and berries. These divine concoctions require an ice cream scooper, a blender, and minimal effort — we promise! For an added chill factor, leave your vessel of choice in the freezer for up to 10 minutes before assembling. Keep cool, and float on.
