When it comes to our favourite flavours, there’s nothing we enjoy more than sitting down and treating ourselves. Even we know, however, that too much of a good thing can wreck it for you, so we try to enjoy all things in moderation. Recently, though, we found another way to keep ourselves interested without overdoing it on one particular kind of food, drink, or snack! We’ve become a little bit obsessed with finding snacks and other drinks that taste like our favourite thing. So, what’s the latest thing we’ve been putting all kinds of awesome and unique twists on lately? We can’t stop making ourselves all kinds of recipes that taste like our favourite pop, root beer!
Just in case you love root beer just as much as we do, if not more, here are 15 absolutely scrumptious recipes that use or taste just like root beer!
1. Kombucha root beer
Besides always loving the taste of root beer, have you also been obsessed with the heavy kombucha trend lately? Well, we can’t say we blame you! Kombucha has an awesome, unique taste and is great for digestion, so we were pretty darn intrigued when we saw the way Cultured Food Life combined its flavour with that of homemade root beer. It’s one of those things that you wouldn’t necessarily think of combining but once you do, you’ll be very glad!
2. Root beer float cupcakes
When it comes to making foods that taste like other treats, one of our very favourite vehicles for making it happen is a fresh batch of delicious cupcakes! There are just so many unique flavours you can add to them without compromising how good they taste, and root beer is no exception. Check out this recipe from Food Snobs that flavours the cake like root beer and lets the icing add a creamy texture so the overall flavour is similar to a float!
3. Root beer vodka float
Did we really get your attention when we started talking about root beer floats just now, but you’ve got a get together coming up that you think your friends and guests might enjoy having a drink at that’s at least a little more adult? Well, that doesn’t mean you can’t still enjoy floats too! Check out how Everyday Dishes amped things up a little bit by adding just a subtle shot of vodka to an otherwise deliciously classic and creamy root beer and ice cream float.
4. Root beer baked beans
Have you actually been looking for ways to combine your kids’ favourite treat flavours with actual meals in any way you can in order to encourage them to try new things, but without actually feeding them straight up junk food for dinner? Then here’s a novelty combination recipe that we think will help you out! Food Network shows you how to make baked beans that actually taste like root beer!
