7 Latin Inspired Ice Cream Floats to Celebrate Hispanic Heritage Month

Hispanic Heritage Month celebrates the contributions, culture and history of Latinos in the U.S. From activism, to music, to language, culture and even food.

Throughout the year, we take time to introduce the kids to some of our favorite Latinx Children's Books and Bilingual Children's Television Shows.

We also prepare lots of Tex-Mex recipes and celebrate the beauty of Latin food culture every day in our home.

And when we're not cooking, we're always looking for something new to try with the kiddos.

Since Hispanic Heritage Month comes right before the holiday season, it's the perfect time to immerse the kids into a world of delicious new foods and flavors.

That's why I make an extra effort to take the time to cook traditional and fusion recipes during the holiday season.

To celebrate Hispanic Heritage Month and the upcoming holiday season, I'm sharing 7 Latin Inspired Ice Cream Float recipes to get your kids excited about Hispanic Heritage Month.

All 7 ice cream floats feature distinct flavors that will remind kids of some of their favorite traditional foods, like Mexican hot chocolate, arroz con leche, and churros.

Check out all of our delicious Latin Inspired Ice Cream Floats below and let us know which one is your favorite!
