I used vanilla ice cream. Next time I'll add a little more ice cream to make it creamier and thicker. Nice drink for the kids but nothing says you can't add a shot of your favorite liqueur for the adults. Made for 2012 Zaar Cookbook Tag
I couldn't find the Rootbeer Float Ice Cream so used vanilla and we all loved this. It was so refreshing.
Brought back wonderful memories drinking this! I didnt have any luck finding the Breyer's root beer float ice cream so I used french vanilla and we enjoyed a thick creamy shake. Cant go wrong with A & W root beer! Thank you so much CoffeeB for sharing! Made and reviewed for the Veg* N Swap #13 in the Vegetarian/Vegan Forum.
Oh my gosh YUM!!! Next time I will tweak a bit to get a little thicker, but the taste was so good!! Couldn't find the ice cream listed, so I used some chocolate chip I had left over from another recipe. THANKS!
this is as good as it gets for a float, I topped mine with some whipped cream :) loved it, thanks Sue!
I made this for myself and 16 yo DS, as he is off for Easter Break, for an afternoon treat!! I made his with real vanilla ice cream and AW rootbeer, but made mine the light vanilla ice cream and diet AW rootbeer!! I tried to get the Breyer's rootbeer flavored ice cream, as I have seen it in my store before, but it wasn't there this time, so had to sub the vanilla!! But for us in the end, what is not to love about this recipe!!! Thanks for sharing your recipe!! Made for Stars tag!!!
Delicious! My kids just loved this and so did I!
Easy, fun and just like the old days. Great recipe. When I was growing up we had root beer floats all the time, this brought back memories. thanks
