Almond Float

Hawaiian gifts

One of our favorite summer desserts is the Almond Float. Many used to eat it with canned fruit cocktail, although we are not sure why. Perhaps when this dessert was first made by Chinese families that immigrated to the U.S., fresh fruit was not readily available so the syrup that canned fruit comes with also might have served as an easy way to sweeten this light dessert. The Almond Float with Fresh Fruit is the perfect summer dessert when you’re looking for something cool, refreshing and light to top off a meal.
