These Low-Carb Root Beer Float Popsicles are like having a frozen root beer float on a stick! They are a creamy combination of vanilla ice cream and root beer flavors and make a perfect low-carb treat for a hot late summer day!
This recipe marks the last of our popsicle recipes for the year. Labor day has come and gone and while there are a few weeks of summer left, fall flavors are starting to dominate our recipe idea list. Even though it’s the last popsicle recipe of the year, it’s one of my favorites. It’s super easy to make–just whip the ingredients together, pour into the mold and let the freezer do the work.
These popsicles bring back memories of drinking root beer floats as a child. Root beer floats were something special in my family. We had them only once or twice each summer. I remember how I loved to watch the root beer boil up as my mother added ice cream to the soda. My favorite part was slurping up the foam that erupted over the edge if she added a little too much ice cream too fast.
- Pour cream into a medium mixing bowl. Using an electric mixer, whip until stiff peaks form.
- Add sweetener, vanilla extract and root beer flavoring and beat until incorporated.
- Add milk and blend to combine. Mixture will thin.
- Whip mixture until it is frothy and thickens again slightly.
- Pour into mold. Add popsicle sticks and freeze for several hours before enjoying.
- To release popsicles, pour hot water over the outside of the mold.
- If you are using a different popsicle mold, you may need to adjust the quantities slightly.
