Root Beer Float Shakeology

Um. Yeah. Ehermagherd.

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

  1. Pour almond milk into your blender.
  2. Add in the vanilla shakeology and root beer extract.
  3. Top with ice.
  4. Blend.
  5. 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!



  1. I'm looking for root beer extract to make this, but have you tried with half almond milk and half sparkling water? I wonder how that would work?

  2. What brand of extract did you use?

  3. The information you have posted is very useful. The sites you have referred was good. Thanks for sharing...
