Have a taste of nostalgia with these Ginger Peach Crumble Ice Cream Floats! They’re vegan and made with peaches, oat crumble, vanilla ice cream, and ginger beer.


Units Scale

For peach sauce:

  • 3 ripe peaches
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 1/2 tsp kosher salt
  • 1 TBS grated fresh ginger
  • 3 TBS bourbon, optional
  • Juice from 1/2 lemon (about 3 TBS)
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 tsp brown sugar

For oat crumble topping (feel free to sub with pre-made granola)

  • 3 TBS olive oil
  • 1/2 cup old fashioned oats
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 4 TBS brown sugar
  • 3 TBS chopped walnuts (or other nuts, optional)

To serve:

  • Vanilla ice cream, vegan if needed
  • 12 bottles of spicy ginger beer (or ginger sparkling water, if you’re looking for something lighter)


  1. Add peaches, water, and salt to a large skillet over medium heat. Let cook until bubbling, then mash with a fork slightly, to smooth. Add ginger, optional bourbon, lemon juice, vanilla extract, and brown sugar. Stir to prevent sticking, if things are cooking too quickly, turn down the heat and add a bit more water. Cook for a couple of minutes more, until you have the texture of a thick but soft sauce. Remove from heat and set aside.
  2. Next, in another small pan, add olive oil, oats, cinnamon, brown sugar, and nuts if using. Let entire mixture toast in the pan until fragrant and golden, about 5 minutes.
  3. To assemble floats, later ice cream, peach sauce, and oat crumble in 2 or 3 tall glasses. One filled 3/4 of the way, top with ginger beer. Enjoy immediately.
