Three Ingredient Root Beer Float Ice Cream

This fun-to-make ice cream is so easy, and yes, it really does taste just like a root beer float! Because it’s made with soda, it does have a slightly different texture than typical ice cream–more like shaved ice, but what’s not to love about that? I do find that once this ice cream is frozen solid, I have to let it sit at room temperature for about 10 minutes before scooping and serving.

You can even use other soda flavors in place of the root beer. Some of our favorites are Dr. Pepper and orange soda (it tastes just like an orange creamsicle). There are so many ways to experiment with this basic recipe–the possibilities are endless. Just think how much fun you could have coming up with soda pop ice cream recipes!

  1. Yum! I think I need to get me an ice cream maker now :)

  2. I have been craving a root beer float lately, so this ice cream looks sooo good! I love the short ingredient list!

  3. I was very excited about this ice cream and tried it in two different ice cream makers and couldn’t get it to work. It does not freeze the way normal ice cream does (potentially due to too low fat content?). Both times it only got slightly icy after running through the ice cream maker for up to 45 minutes (which is already longer than it should take) and then when I tried to salvage it by placing in the freezer, the ingredients separated and it was just an unpleasant ice concoction :( Will just have to stick to regular root beer floats.
