Keto Root Beer Float

Keto Root Beer Float

This Keto Root Beer Float is very authentic in flavor! It’s creamy with a delicious vanilla ice cream. Plus, there’s plenty of bubbles and foam from the (keto) root beer. You will definitely not believe you’re enjoying a low carb and sugar free treat!

Homemade Ice Cream

If you have never made homemade ice cream before, it’s much easier than you might think! Personally, I use this ice cream machine (in pink). As a tip, your removable bowl will need to be kept in the freezer for at least 24 hours before using. (I always keep mine in the freezer!)

Ingredient Options for Root Beer Float

When making your root beer float(s), I’d recommend not making the ice cream in bulk, as it’ll freeze very hard, due to the Erythritol. I’ve seen some success with putting the ice cream into silicone molds when freezing. However, it’s best to not make in bulk unless you have plenty of time (patience) for it to thaw. Otherwise, Allulose tends to freeze better than Erythritol, as it doesn’t freeze quite as hard. If you’d prefer, you can substitute Allulose in this recipe.

If you’re new to keto, you are probably getting to know about sugar alternatives. Below you can find more information on why Erythritol works so well for those who are low carb!

Ingredients

Ice Cream:

  • 3/4 cup Heavy Whipping Cream
  • 1/4 cup Unsweetened Milkadamia Milk (or Coconut Milk)
  • 1/4 cup Swerve/Erythritol (or Allulose) (Confectioners)
  • Pinch of Pink Salt
  • 3/4 tsp Vanilla Extract

Root Beer Float:

  • 1 can Zevia: Ginger Root Beer
  • 4 tbsp Whipped Cream, Aerosel (*Or feel free to make your own!)

Instructions

Vanilla Ice Cream:

  • Obtain your ice cream churner with a removable freezer bowl. Ensure your ice cream machine bowl has been in the freezer for at least 24 hours. (I always keep mine in the freezer!)
  • Use a blender to mix the following ingredients: heavy whipping cream, milk, swerve, salt, and vanilla extract. (You can also whisk these ingredients together via a medium sized bowl.)
  • Next, place ice cream mixture into your ice cream maker and allow it to churn. I'd recommend following your manufacturer's instructions per churn time. (Mine takes 15 minutes.)

    You will know your ice cream is churned when it is thick, but not overly solid, similar to soft serve.

  • Transfer to the freezer for about 1.5-2 hours, to allow ice cream to become firm.
