Root Beer Float

Nothing says summer like corn on the cob and root beer float. It is tradition in our house to start summer vacation with a root beer float. Chilled root beer with vanilla ice cream! Homemade vanilla ice cream makes it even better.

You will need
1 bottle root beer, chilled
1 scoop vanilla ice cream

For the vanilla ice cream
2 cups milk (any fat %)
1 cup fat free condensed milk
3 tbsp. milk powder
1/4 tsp. vanilla extract
1 tbsp. sugar (if needed)

For the non cook ice cream
Mix all the ingredients together and whisk for a couple minutes. Pour into an airtight container and freeze until set.

For the root beer float
Add a couple scoops of vanilla ice cream to a glass. Pour root beer slowly over the ice cream. Let the foam rise and subside before pouring more root beer over the top. Continue till the glass is full.
