When it comes to summer treats, root beer floats has always been a family favorite. Growing up I rarely saw my mom drink any soda with the exception of root beer. And since she is a vanilla ice cream fanatic, it comes as no surprise we had root beer floats often. Obviously root beer + vanilla ice cream in the house = root beer float. (Shouldn’t even have to explain that one.) But Jennifer Grossi shares her recipe for Root Beer Float No-Churn Ice Cream below and now I have a new way to enjoy this favorite summer treat.
I hate to admit that I actually don’t even own an ice cream maker. My mom does and I always figured if I really needed homemade ice cream I could
steal borrow hers. Kitchen storage space is at a premium in my house and I never could find a proper place. Now with the popularity of no-churn ice cream, it isn’t even necessary. With just a few simple ingredients, homemade ice cream is just a couple of steps away.
Root Beer Float No-Churn Ice Cream
2 cups whipping cream
1 can (10 oz) sweetened condensed milk
1 teaspoon root beer flavor extract
1 tablespoon vanilla extract
