Today I discovered that simple ice cream can be made from a combination of milk, sweetener, and flavorings. This version is root beer and vanilla flavored. My daughter thinks this treat tastes very much like a root beer float.
Easy Root Beer Ice Cream
Makes 6 1/2 cup servings
3 cups 2% milk (lactose free milk may be used instead)
2/3 cup sugar
1/2 t root beer flavoring (I used LorAnn brand, available in craft stores)
3/4 t vanilla extract
Whisk all ingredients until sugar is dissolved. Churn in ice cream maker according to manufacturer’s recommendations. Since this ice cream is low fat without thickeners, I recommend enjoying it soft-serve style, right after churning is done.
