Blue Moon Float

The flavour combination is simply da bomb! Reminiscent of an orange creamsicle. If that’s your sort of thing then this is for you!


This is a tribute drink. My brother loved this beer. I didn’t pay much attention to beer before his death but since have become a bit of a connoisseur. Afterward, another of my brothers (I have 5) drank to his memory with this beer and I decided to do that too. I fell in love with this beer! He had good taste! (not that I’m surprised at that I just didn’t expect I’d like it) It is traditionally served with a slice of orange which pairs very nicely. I also got to try one at a restaurant when I visited my brother in California. I decided to make my own vegan float from it with banana, coconut milk, orange and vanilla. All flavours complement each other. Have you ever tried a float with beer before?

You will need:

Clockwise from top: 2 oranges, 1/4 cup coconut milk, 4 or so soft pitted dates, 3 frozen bananas, 1 tablespoon of vanilla extract and Blue Moon or Belgian Moon Beer.

Then cut the skin off or peel the oranges, remove any seeds and place all ingredients except beer into a high-powered blender. It will be thick. This is what you want, a nice thick soft serve consistency.

This is enough to make 2 floats depending on how much you put in each glass. May even stretch it to 4.

Scoop some nice cream into a tall glass as it will get foamy when you pour in the beer!

Give it a little stir with your straw and add a fresh orange slice!

It’s da bomb! Cheers!

Enjoy life in the pink!
