This is the final recipe in our Latin / Mexican Inspired Ice Cream Float series. It comes a few days late, since I was traveling all week. I really thought I would have it up by Monday, but my week had different plans…lol.​​​​​​​

So here it is, the final recipe…the Colombian Coffee Ice Cream Float!

Thanks again to everyone who contributed ideas on our Facebook page! I still have a few more I’d like to do in the future. Maybe next Summer. *wink* *wink*

And now…on to the recipe!​​​​​​​

The Colombian Coffee Ice Cream Float

This delicious ice cream float is inspired by the bold flavors of Colombian coffee and Malta beverages. Two gorgeous and intense flavors that some might consider an acquired taste.

Made with creamy Colombian coffee ice cream and the rich Malta soda, this ice cream float is the perfect treat for anyone who loves strong coffee and dark, rich malta flavors.

If you love the flavors of strong coffee, Malta or black licorice, you’ll love this unique ice cream float!

Now, my kids weren’t into this one, since both the coffee and malta flavors were a bit too strong for them, but I loved it.

It reminds me of all the delicious molasses, malt and licorice candies and drinks I used to enjoy with my dad growing up.

Love malta? Grab a malta Tshirt for yourself or a friend!

He’s German descent and in our childhood home, those dark, rich foods were where it’s at. I love molasses, rye bread and malt or stout drinks. Something I definitely get from my dad.

Hubs like them too, but in small doses. Same for the kiddos. I guess it really is an acquired taste…lol.

Colombian Coffee + Malta Ice Cream Float

If you like a more mellow taste, you might want to try adding a little extra dairy to your ice cream float. A little heavy cream, some whipped cream, etc.

I’ve heard that in much of Latin America, people will add condensed milk or evaporated milk to their maltas and most people I know add it to their coffees too. So toning it down with a little cream is totally ok…and even expected.

Alternatively, you can use vanilla or any coffee flavored ice cream, with 1-2 shots of espresso or strong coffee in place of the Colombian Coffee ice cream.

Ya’ll, it’s taken me years to turn him into a coffee drinker and he still likes his stuff hospital room style (it’s watered down and bland…lol). Sorry hubs! It’s true.

Whatever you do, don’t hesitate to make it your own. The best recipes are the ones tailored to your own palate, so don’t be afraid to experiment.

Now the wafer cookies are just for fun, but I’ve known a lot of people to love them with their coffee. I found a box of coffee flavored wafers at HEB, so I just had to use them…lol. And they were great with this float…so, win, win!

Colombian Coffee Ice Cream Float Sundae

By now you know how I do. I’ve also whipped up a smaller sundae version of my Colombian Coffee Ice Cream Float!

It contains half the ingredients and is a perfect serving size. One scoop of ice cream, a splash of soda and all the delicious toppings you could ever want.

Since this sundae is bursting with flavor, I kept it simple with just whipped cream topping, but you could also include wafer cookies, obleas, hot fudge, freshly grated piloncillo or even some cinnamon. It’s totally up to you!

I hope you try this float and if you do, please share it with us on social media and tag us so we can see your results!​​​​​​​

Buen provecho!
