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!
