Apple Cider Floats

Now that football is here and school has started again, it is starting to feel like fall.  This makes me want fall food, such as apples.  However, the weather here still feels like summer.  It has been hot outside, even hotter than it was all summer.  It has been humid as well.  So while I’m feeling like eating fall treats, I need some summer treats to cool me down as well.
One of my husband’s favorite fall treats is apple cider.  The minute September comes we have to start buying apple cider and we usually continue to buy it throughout the fall.   He cannot get enough of apple cider.  On a particularly hot day last week, I though it would be fun to make a cool treat using apple cider.  This would provide a great treat for when it is hot outside but include the great tastes of fall.  I decided to make a float combining the apple cider with ice cream.
These Apple Cider Floats were so delicious and they were a great treat for a hot day.  I also love that they are perfect for fall and they would really be great any time of year or any time you feel like a cool apple treat.  The best thing is that these floats can be made dairy-free.  I used soy ice cream to make mine dairy free, but they can also be made using regular ice cream.  I also added some caramel sauce (you can also use dairy free caramel sauce) and cinnamon to add some delicious flavor to the floats.
My whole family loved these floats.  My husband, the big apple cider fan, thought they were delicious and my son kept asking for more.  I though the combination of the ice cream and apple cider tasted fantastic together and made a really delicious treat.  Plus, these are so easy to make and can be made quickly.  I hope you enjoy these delicious treat for a hot fall day.
