I heard about this new Root Beer Float Shakeology recipe. I must admit, I was skeptical. In my opinion, root beer floats must be done CORRECTLY to be good. We're talking the good vanilla ice cream and fresh root beer.
So, last week I was a little bored with my normal shakeology routine. I needed something different than my Mocha Frappe shakeo. Then I remembered that I had bought some root beer extract at the grocery store. I decided to give my version of the recipe a whirl and low and behold...
The results of my little experiment were OUT OF THIS WORLD!!! It was like a big fat cheat meal/dessert but without any of the guilt! In fact, my son had a taste and asked me to make him one! That right there is a SCORE!
Do I have you excited yet? Are you drooling? Want the recipe???
Ok - here it is :)
- 1 scoop/packet of Vanilla Shakeology
- 1/4 tsp Root Beer Extract
- 8-12 ozs unsweetened almond milk (or water - depending on what you like)
- Ice to taste
- Pour almond milk into your blender.
- Add in the vanilla shakeology and root beer extract.
- Top with ice.
- Drink up!
If you are sensitive to flavor, you might need to use less extract (1/8 tsp). If you need a little more flavor, use more extract (up to 1 tsp).
Let me know what you think and if you made any changes to my recipe!
