Root Beer Float Popsicles





Introduction: Root Beer Float Popsicles

About: I have recently discovered the makerverse. I love absolutely everything about it. My main projects are robotics and cool life hacks that I find. Thanks for checking me out!

2 summers ago, we bought some popsicle molds. That summer, we had a ton of fun trying new flavors and ingredients. We made about 100 different combinations, some better than others. :) This summer, I hope to make instructables of our best creations. One of my personal favorites was the Root Beer Float popsicle. So, I hope that you will enjoy this delicious treat.

Step 1: What You Will Need

This project doesn't require many objects or time. To make this popsicle, you will need:
-Root Beer ( A&W is my favorite, but we only had Barq's)
-Vanilla Ice Cream
-Ice Cream Scooper
-Popsicle Molds

Step 2: Pour in the Root Beer

Pour the can of your chosen root beer in the blender. I put a whole 12 ounce can and came out with some extra. You will not run out of root beer.

Step 3: Put in the Ice Cream

Open the lid of your ice cream and let it soften for about five minutes. This time will also allow the root beer to sit and lose a lot of carbonation. This is a good thing because then the root beer will not foam up when you put the ice cream in. Even if it does foam up, the blending will take care of it. Put in about 3-4 scoops of ice cream.

Step 4: Blend It Up!

Once you have all of the ingredients in the blender, turn it on. I put mine on the "Frozen Drinks" option. If your blender doesn't have this, the medium setting should do. It blends very quick because it doesn't have to blend anything tough like ice. Mine was completely mixed within 20 seconds.

Step 5: Pour It in the Popsicle Molds

Once your mix has been completely blended, pour it in the popsicle molds. Be careful not to pour in too much, it will expand while it freezes. I would say leave about 1/2 an inch free on the top so it doesn't overflow while freezing.

Step 6: Freeze Them

Once you have poured the mix into the molds, stick them in the freezer. It will take 4-6 hours for them to freeze completely once you put them in. While they are freezing, don't mess with them. Wait until they are COMPLETELY frozen to take them out.

Step 7: Eat the Popsicle

Now that you have frozen the popsicles, you can eat them. To remove them in one piece from the mold, you may need to run them under some warm water. They don't melt extremely fast. Enjoy!

Step 8: Thank You!

This is my second Instructable ever. Thank you for taking the time to do this, it means more than you think. In the comments below, please put how your popsicle was as well as any issues that you encountered along the way. If any thing is wrong with this Instructable, please put it in the comments so I am able to fix it. Thank you so much. I hope that you can enjoy this delicious treat.

In a time far away, you could buy Popsicles with root beer over vanilla ice cream. This is a good modern interpretation. I voted for it.

Awesome! Those will be pretty cool. How did the others turn out?

That sounds like it might just taste very good. Thank you for checking this out. Also, I like the ysername

Hello my username brother, I just got the molds in from China and it has 8 sections, which is pretty cool!

I would say about 3-4 scoops. Thank you for pointing that out!

This sounds great! I can't wait to try it. One question: How much ice cream goes into the 12 oz of root beer?
