Root Beer Floats get transformed into Root Beer Float Popsicles for the perfect summer treat!
One of the best gifts I ever received was a 12 bottle sampler of root beer from my friend, Michele. I’ll never forget it – they were all completely different, in packaging and flavor. I enjoyed every last drop.
It’s really my favorite soda, and yet I rarely ever buy it other than to use in something, like Root Beer Floats. And, in this case, Root Beer popsicles. How could I not?
Other homemade popsicles we love!
Root Beer Float Popsicles
- 1 1/2 cups cold, flat root beer
- 2 cups vanilla ice cream
- Place chunks of ice cream in each popsicle mold, working quickly before it melts.
- Slowly pour the root beer into a corner of each mold, filling to the top.
- Freeze for 1 hour, place sticks in the molds, and continue to freeze for at least 5 hours.
- To remove pops, run hot water over the outsides of the molds for a few seconds, then gently pull the sticks.
- you need flat root beer for this or the carbonation will bubble up when pouring. Open a bottle and place it in the refrigerate a day before using.
- this popsicle recipe was created using a standard bar-shaped mold, each holding about 1/3 cup. If you are using a different mold, you might need to adjust the ingredients.
