I know, right? Another ice cream recipe, sheesh! I can’t help it, I’ve been experimenting with different flavors and came up with this as soon as I remembered I had some root beer extract in the pantry. We love root beer floats (and root beer floats for grown ups!) so this was a given. Usually made with vanilla ice cream and root beer soda, root beer floats have been a favorite for many years. Well, now you can have it in ice cream form.
All four of my kids are huge root beer fans. I am too, and I really don’t drink soda. I will make an exception for root beer though. This is really easy to make and if you start early enough, you can be enjoying it that same evening.
