Root Beer Sherbet

Do you love root beer? Do you love ice cream? Do you love root beer floats?

If you answered yes to any or all of those questions, then you have to make this stuff. Yes, you have to!

We tried making this in our ice cream maker and since it was our first time using our ice cream maker, somehow it didn't turn out. Undaunted, we just poured the mix into a baggie, froze it and then scraped it out. It was uber crystallized, but it didn't matter. This stuff is amazing. It takes like a frozen root beer float. HEAVEN! 

Root Beer Sherbet

2 – 12 oz bottles of GOOD root beer (Virgil's is an excellent choice. No corn syrup too!)
1/2 cup sweetened condensed milk
1 cup whole milk or half and half

Open the root beer and let it sit in the fridge to get a little flat and get well chilled. Make sure all your other ingredients are chilled too. Mix up all the ingredients. Let the foam die down a little.

Pour into your prepared ice cream maker. It takes about 20 – 30 minutes, I’d say. Enjoy it pure and plain with a honkin' big spoon. Nothing else needed but a bowl. Or you could just eat it out of the ice cream maker. It's up to you.

Katherine- do it! You and Frank will fall in LOVE with this stuff. :-)

Donna - Thanks for your comment! I hope you give this stuff a try. You'll need to make it with American-style root beer (if you can find it) because I've heard the taste is quite different from Australian root beer. The thing I liked about it is that it's not too sweet, unlike most American frozen treats. :-)
