Who doesn’t remember enjoying a delicious root beer float in the summer time. I remember as a child going to A&W getting those cute little mugs full of cold delicious Root Beer. What a treat that was!
Having Root Beer Float Popsicles brings back so many childhood memories.
I love to serve Root Beer Floats on a hot summer day to my family. It is a yummy way to cool everyone off.

Servings 6


  • 15 ounces  A&W® Root Beer
  • 1 cup 1 cup vanilla ice cream


  • Let the vanilla ice cream sit out for 5 minutes or until it becomes slightly melted. 
  • Fill each mold a third to half full of ice cream. 
  • Fill each mold with A&W Root Beer. It’s easier to work with root beer that has gone flat. Allow the root beer to sit on the counter for about an hour before making the popsicles.
    Since the root beer will foam, let it sit for a minute until that foam goes down and fill some more until you have liquid to the top of each mold. 
  • Put the popsicle mold lid on and insert popsicle sticks. 
  • Let freeze overnight. To remove from popsicle molds, submerge molds in water careful not to reach the top and gently slide popsicles out of molds. Enjoy!
