Root Beer Float Smoothie

Hi Everyone,

Happy Friday to you!!! Remember the giveaway that I posted for McCormicks 125th anniversary? Well you may recall that there was a smoothie in one of the pictures. Well today I am sharing with you my Root Beer Float Smoothie recipe.  Yummers!
Root Beer Float Smoothie
This smoothie is amazing! It’s creamy,smooth, sweet and tastes like a root beer float with a hint of banana. Oddly enough banana and root beer go pretty well together. I was a little unsure at first, but my taste buds were pleasantly surprised and happy. I went with a banana because I wanted an ice cream type texture in my smoothie. After all I am trying to mimic a root beer float.

Besides a banana, I also used greek yogurt, coconut milk and of course McCormick’s Root Beer Concentrate. The root beer concentrate is wonderful and will give any dish you use it in a nice root beer flavor. A little bit goes a long way!! So don’t use a lot of concentrate. When I made the smoothie the first time I used to much and WOWZERS it was over whelming.

    6. This is so good by itself, but I went a step further by adding a scoop of vanilla protein powder & 1/8 c more milk & it was fantastic.
