Hey there. Summer’s definitely arrived where we are. So we started thinking ice cream. Then we started thinking ice cream floats. In my case, a root beer float. But can you make a root beer float that’s vegan? Yes! With this.
My daughter searched the world wide web for vegan root beer, and she found one. Fortunately you can get it in Texas. It’s called LIVE’s Kombucha Root Beer.
I checked out the ingredients (naturally):
Organic Raw Kombucha (Organic Fair Trade Certified™ Tea, Organic Fair Trade Certified™ Evaporated Cane Juice, and Organic Kombucha Culture Fermented in Purified Water), Natural Flavors, Organic Stevia Extract (Natural Sweetener).
When you see “organic sugar” fret not. See end of post.
But LIVE products are so terribly expensive. Walmart sells it but you’ll have to go in, and they are frequently out of stock. The stuff goes fast. We got the last they had! Amazon will deliver it free but it’s right at $60 for 8 12-oz bottles.
We can’t afford this all the time. So we looked again. Gotcha! Coca Cola saves the day. Barq’s is vegan. They explain how:
If you’re a vegan or a vegetarian, you should know that a few of our drinks do contain small traces of fish gelatine (which is used as a stabiliser for the beta-carotene colour). These drinks are Lilt, Lilt Zero, Kia-Ora Orange Squash No Added Sugar and Schweppes Orange Squash.
We love SoDelicious. Use your fave vegan brand.
Ha, ha! No recipe. You already know how to make a root beer float. Use your preferred ratio of ice cream to root beer in a tall glass. We say ice cream first though so the root beer when poured in goes all foamy and stuff.
Check this out. The Minimalist Baker’s Vodka Root Beer Float! She uses coconut ice cream. Yes! Recommended for 21 and over. Wink!
That does it. Have a super superb weekend. See y’all again next week.
REFINED CANE SUGAR VS ORGANIC SUGAR
While bone char is used to bleach and filter cane sugar, not all cane sugar is refined with bone char. Some companies rely on alternatives like granular carbon, which does not contain animal products, during the filtering process. Organic sugar does not use bone char. So we’re safe.
