This sweet creamy Vegan Cold Brew Coffee Float is the ultimate summer treat. Made with coffee ice cream and topped with chocolate-covered coffee beans.
I don't know about you, but a highlight of my day is my morning cup of coffee. I don't start my day with it like most people. Instead, I first have warm water with lemon and then a smoothie.
Then, around mid-morning, I have a cup of cold brewed coffee with cinnamon, sweetener, and unsweetened almond or soy milk. I don't really need coffee as a pick-me-up, it's more of a treat.
This vegan coffee ice cream float just takes that treat up a notch. I could literally have one of these every day they are so good!
Creamy coffee ice cream in cold brew coffee with crunchy chocolate-covered coffee beans, yes, please! And if all the ice cream melts, it's fun to drink it all up.

**Important! If you are gluten free you may want to avoid coffee altogether. I personally have never had a problem drinking it, and I have a gluten intolerance. It is probably because I drink whole bean organic coffee, and grind it myself. I learned that it can be problematic for people who don't tolerate gluten. So I did some research and one article mentioned to try organic whole bean coffee because it isn't highly processed causing cross-reactivity issues. So please do the research yourself, and test it out. I try to only post recipes that are 100% gluten free since I have a gluten intolerance. I am really careful about avoiding gluten in my daily life.
