I don't know about you guys, but my kids love popsicles. I try to have them in the freezer at all times, especially in the summer months. My freezer door is constantly opening, with little hands reaching for the pops.
Over the past few years, I have been making homemade popsicles more and more. The kids love my experiments and they are always asking when I will make more. I have an ice cream maker , and for years I have made root beer float freezes for the boys. Nothing more than a 2liter of root beer and a can of sweetened condensed milk stirred together and put into the machine to make a frosty treat . I top it with whipped cream and a cherry and the boys are happy campers. These pops are basically the root beer float freezes on popsicle form. This recipe makes 6 pops, so I usually double it so the boys will have enough for an afternoon, and for friends from the neighborhood who stop by and play.
Root Beer Float Popsicles
yields: 5-6 molds
1 1/2 cups root beer
1/2 cup sweetened condensed milk
Mix the root beer and the sweetened condensed milk together until mixed and the bubbles disappear. ( I usually make a double batch in a pitcher and pour them in molds )
Pour into popsicle molds and freeze.
