Traditional Root Beer Floats, Root Beer Cocktails, Root Beer Float Popsicles, Root Beer Ice Cream, Root Beer Sauce, Root Beer Float Cupcakes … you name the dessert category and we’ve got it here in this roundup! Root Beer … Snooch Snear! The latter is the silly term Mr. GFE’s dad coined and the whole family ended up using when referencing root beer. It’s a nickname that has stuck around and always makes us laugh. But let’s get to those gluten-free root beer dessert recipes, shall we?
~ From Cookistry, Donna shares Root Beer Coffee Float with Almond Whipped Cream. The almond comes from almond butter—a brilliant addition to whipped cream if I do say so! But I’m sure some of you will be much more pleased by the inclusion of your beloved coffee by way of Donna’s “super-charged coffee ice cream”!
~ From Go Dairy Free, Alisa made dairy-free Root Beer Floats using ready-made healthier ingredients, and only two ingredients at that. Now that’s a quick route to sipping on this delightful beverage for sure!
~ From Boulder Locavore, Toni made Root Beer Float Popsicles from the two ingredients traditionally used in root beer floats. I think putting them in a popsicle makes for a much more special treat though!
~ From The Baking Beauties, Jeanine offers Root Beer Cupcakes with Root Beer Buttercream Frosting. That last part, Buttercream Frosting, definitely catches your eye and gets the tastebuds going! Interestingly enough, no root beer is actually used in this recipe; root beer extract gets the job done beautifully!
~ From In Johnna’s Kitchen, Johnna’s Root Beer Float Cupcake recipe turns out to be Root Beer Frosting, Root Beer Ice Cream, Root Beer Sauce, and Root Beer Float Cupcakes! Yes, all of those are the wonderful components of her Root Beer Float Cupcakes!
~ From Gluten-Free Canteen, Lisa admits that she went “all Lewis Carroll/everything but the kitchen sink” with these Root Beer Float Cupcakes! I’ll admit that the unexpectedness of the ingredients in this recipe surprised me. Which of her suggested kitchen sink additions will you choose? Maybe you’ll even come up with some of your own!
~ From Flora Dawn, we have this super moist and delicious Root Beer Bundt Cake. Flora says that “it’s a fun chocolate cake that is sure to be a hit with the grownups and kids alike. In fact it’s so good, it’s what I made for my very own birthday cake!”
From Dine and Dish, the kids can enjoy Root Beer Float Popsicles (by the way, there’s a lovely tribute in this post to cookbooks and those who use them “well”) and the adults can enjoy Whipped Root Beer Float Cocktails (please ensure recipe ingredients are gluten free to your comfort level)!
Some final notes: Mary Golden-Silva, a reader of my gfe Facebook page, told me that one can make fantastic root beer from sparkling water and root beer liquid stevia. That recipe sounds very healthy and terrific to me! Last, I have to admit that I didn’t find nearly as many gluten-free root beer recipes from All Gluten-Free Desserts‘ featured contributors as I’d hoped, so I’m suspecting that I’ve missed some. I’ll be sure to add them here as I find them!
