Delicious copycat version of Sonic's blended root beer float. Perfect amounts ice cream and root beer in every sip! (Dairy free version, gluten free, soy free, nut free, FODMAP, vegetarian)
One of the best things about summer are the desserts. While I loved our birthday Grilled Doughnuts, a Choco Taco on the backyard patio while typing at night is also a favorite. Sometimes though, just sipping a cool drink on the porch while the dogs play around us and the kids are sleeping in their rooms is just what my husband and I need to relax and unwind after a long day.
While I'm not a big soda drinker, my husband loves the Sonic Blended Root Beer Floats. He loves that it gives you the perfect blend of root beer and ice cream in every sip. This homemade root beer float is top notch!
But...if you love to sip a nice drink on the porch every night might we suggest one of these delicious drinks too!
Sonic Blended Root Beer Float
Sonic Drive In developed the classic blended root beer float taking vanilla ice cream and root beer and placing it in a blender until smooth and creamy. Classic root beer floats rarely have that consistency in flavor--that smooth root beer and ice cream mix in every sip that some want.
For a time, the drink became so popular that Sonic now sells it in a pudding mix!Sonic Instant Pudding
To make the shake, you only need two, yes two ingredients!
- Vanilla ice cream--substitute dairy free if you want.
- Root beer
