Root Beer Float Popsicles are made with A&W® Root Beer and vanilla ice cream packed into popsicle molds and frozen for a delicious treat made with only two ingredients.
Growing up in the Pacific Northwest was amazing and full of adventure. I remember riding my bike down big hills, finding frogs in the creek, going blackberry picking at my grandparents, road trips with the family, baking strawberry pies, hiking the mountains one day while dipping my toes in the ocean the next and enjoying an old fashioned root beer float on a hot day made with vanilla ice cream and A&W Root Beer.
The beach may be far from where I am raising my own children here in the Midwest but the memories are just as fantastic. Running through the sprinkler, spending long days at the amusement park, exploring every corner of the city and just like my own childhood, enjoying some A&W Root Beer. My root beer got fun twist today with these Root Beer Float Popsicles. Easy to make, creamy and refreshing on a hot day!
My one stop shop for summer fun is Walmart! From outdoor toys and flowers for the front porch to adorable clothes and all sorts of snacks, like A&W Root Beer and vanilla ice cream. Walmart has a little bit of everything at great prices.
A&W is celebrating its 100th anniversary! Anything that has been around 100 years must be good, which is why it will be on my Walmart shopping list all summer long!

Tips & Tricks
Let the ice cream sit out for 5 minutes or until it gets soft and slightly melted before placing into popsicle molds. This will make it easier to fill each mold and also allows that A&W Root Beer to mix in a bit to create a creamy popsicle.
Root Beer Float Popsicles
- 15 ounces A&W® Root Beer
- 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. 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 and serve. You can run the mold under lukewarm water for a minute to release the popsicles from the mold easier.
