One of my most favorite things to eat in the summer time are root beer float popsicles. There used to be these delicious ones I would find at the grocery store, but it was always so hit or miss. This post contains affiliate links.
They were only available during the summertime, and it was always so hard to find them. That’s why I like making them at home now.
What do you need to make Root Beer Float Popsicles?
You just need TWO INGREDIENTS to make these delicious popsicles:
- Root Beer
- Vanilla Ice Cream
I also recommend a good popsicle mold. This is the popsicle mold we have, and I just love it. My kids love it, and they even make their own popsicles with it, too. They like to make fruit juice popsicles with juices like orange juice or cherry juice, or even layered Kool-aid.
How do you make 2 Ingredient Root Beer Float Popsicles?
First, you’ll melt the ice cream for just 1 minute in the microwave. Stir to make sure it’s completely melted. But, it should still be cold.
Start by adding about 1 1/2 to 2 tablespoons of melted ice cream to each popsicle mold. Place the popsicle mold tray in freezer for 2 hours until frozen.
This is the hard part, but not really that hard.
Add the root beer into popsicle molds, pouring very slowly. Just like when you make a root beer float, the soda will fizz up. Take your time and remove fizz with spoon as needed. Repeat this until all the molds are filled.
Put a popsicle stick in each mold, and replace the lid (if you have one). Then, freeze for at least 4-6 hours.
