While not as creamy as ice cream made with a cooked custard this is still pretty darn good and couldn't be easier. I used 2 c. heavy cream and 1 c. half and half as I wanted a bit richer and smoother final result. After tasting the mixture I felt it needed another 1/2 tsp. of root beer extract (I used Watkins) and it was perfect. However this may or not be the case with other brands of root beer extract or root beer concentrate such as McCormick's so taste first. It DOES taste like a root beer float!
EXACTLY like a root beer float! I made no changes to the recipe. While making it I wondered why vanilla extract was being used and not just root beer. Now I know. The vanilla extract gives it that vanilla ice cream in the root beer flavor. I will surely make this when the grandchildren are coming. Root beer has always been one of their favorite flavors. This recipe sure brings back memories of the soda fountain days. Thanks Grace Gutberlet for sharing!
This was the first recipe I've tried for homemade ice cream and I liked the taste ok but it was way too rich(even the kids thought so). I made it again with less cream and more milk and it was much better! Of the seven people in my house who tried it 4 loved it 2 not so much and my husband said it tasted like Pepto!
Sooo good! My son loves root beer popsicles with ice cream in the middle and sure enough he couldn't get enough of this. I added 1 1/2 tsp of root beer concentrate though. Definitely made it more tasty.
I am making this as we speak and it is gorgeous! As I live in a country where root beer is non-existant I have to rely on the good kind nature of my family to send me root beer extract. And if this is the only way to get my root beer fix I don't mind at all! It does taste exactly how a rootbeer float should taste. Thank you so much for this recipe!
