Two-Ingredient Root Beer Slush Recipe

This two-ingredient root beer slush is the perfect frosty beverage to enjoy while cooling down this summer! 

Root Beer Slush Recipe

Last weekend we headed out to enjoy the San Diego County Fair. While we were there, we enjoyed bites of our favorite fair foods, rode plenty of rides, played games, and enjoyed the rest of the sights and sounds of the fairgrounds. It was quite a fun adventure, as always, for our family and by the time we headed to the exit, we were exhausted.

But before we got to the gate, my husband spied the last place he wanted to stop. The cinnamon roll booth! It’s a tradition to grab a few cinnamon rolls to take home and enjoy the next morning as we reminisce about the fun we had the previous day. And it’s a way to continue to fair food fun. But this time he noticed something else on the menu, a root beer slush! And when I watched them make it behind the glass, I knew we had to try it at home. Because it was SO easy! Just two ingredients and we had a delicious, refreshing beverage to enjoy as a tasty treat after dinner during the hot days of summer.

Plus I can easily turn it into something that fits my LCHF lifestyle by substituting regular root beer for diet root beer. Win-win! And you could totally make this a boozy drink and add vanilla vodka or another delicious choice to the mix.

Root Beer Slush - great way to cool down!

Root Beer Slush

  • 8oz root beer
  • 1 cup ice

Blend ingredients in a blender – we love our Vitamix (affiliate link) – until it’s the consistency of a slush.

Optional: add 2 tablespoons of heavy whipping cream to create a root beer float slush. SO GOOD!

What’s your favorite way to cool down during the summer?

Root Beer Float Cupcakes

Root Beer Float Cupcakes1

This past week I hosted a fun Root Beer Float Party with my family and in celebration I decided to bake some root beer float cupcakes to go with our floats.

These cupcakes are simple and taste great! Plus they’re half the fat than if you made them from the box. Now that’s pretty awesome.

The whipped cream topping does start to melt pretty quickly so try to hold off on topping the cupcakes until just before serving.

Root Beer Pulled Pork Slow Cooker Recipe

My absolute favorite way to make pulled pork is in the crock pot. With a can of rootbeer.

Yup! You heard that right. I absolutely love that I can realize that I forgot to pull meat out of the freezer the night before, grab a pork loin, put it in the crock pot with a can of root beer and just let it simmer all day for a delicious and tasty meal in the evening.

What makes them even better? Some amazingly fresh and yeasty homemade hamburger buns!

If you haven’t already tried this way of cooking your pulled pork then you need to! It’s the perfect dish for the coming summer months.
