However ice cream is a different story. Some ice creams do contain wheat, so be very careful. Another problem that often occurs with ice cream is cross-contamination. People dip into the ice cream, place a scoop on their cake, then go back for more with bits of cake all over the ice cream scoop. So be wary of ice cream that has already been opened.
One of the "trusted companies" which seems to label their ice cream well is Dreyer's brand. Their vanilla is pretty tasty, and it comes in French vanilla, along with the ordinary stuff.
So how do you make a root beer float? It's easy peasy!
- 1 scoop of vanilla ice cream
- 1 can root beer
Put the ice cream in your cup. Fill your cup the rest of the way with root beer. Ingest.
- For a fruity variation, try adding one of Dryer's sherbets to 7 UP or Sprite.
- It's also possible to make colorful sodas by adding vanilla ice cream to any of the Shasta flavored sodas, like grape soda, cherry soda, or orange soda. Last time I called the company, Shasta guaranteed that all of their sodas were GF (but that has been more than a year ago, so beware).
In any case, with summer right around the corner, I thought it was time to add root beer floats to my collection of online recipes! :)
