Frozen Root Beer Float Pops #CookoutWeek

Frozen Root Beer Float Pops

Can I just start off by telling you how much I LOVE going to the thrift store? Seriously. The US’s biggest thrift store is not far from me and I love a good deal. Last time I stopped in, I found a set of 6 popsicle molds for 99 cents! On my way home from my shopping trip, I stopped in at my parents place. I was telling my mother about the molds I found and of course my dad proceeded to make sure I knew that he likes Root Beer flavored pops… hint hint.

Frozen Root Beer Float Pop

So the inaugural batch had to be root beer flavored. But since it’s #CookoutWeek, I decided to make frozen root beer float pops instead after being inspired by Daily Dish Recipes. If you’re hosting a cookout, these are great because you have make them ahead of time and don’t have to rush around making them the day of your cookout. Whenever the kids (or kids at heart) are ready for a frozen treat, just grab them out of the freezer!

You can also make a low sugar version of these pops by using diet soda and no sugar added ice cream. My dad has to watch his sugar, so this was a much better option for him!
