|Cool, creamy and frosty, behold the root beer float slushie
So all you need is your Cuisinart 2-quart electric ice cream maker, and a chilled inner canister. You will need the following three ingredients:
4 1/2 cups of your favorite root beer
1 cup of heavy cream
3/4 cup of sugar
Pour the 4 1/2 cups of root beer into a measuring cup.
Add the 1 cup of heavy cream and the 3/4 cup of sugar into a larger bowl. Once they are mixed together and the sugar is dissolved, pour the entire concoction into your chilled inner ice cream canister for your machine, place the stirring paddle, place the lid on securely, and turn on the machine for 22 min.

Now if you are saying to yourself, darn, this looks delicious, but I don't have me one of them fancy 2-quart ice cream makers. My question to you is... WHY? You need one of these handy dandy machines, like now. We made ours a gift for my hubby for father's day three years ago, and we have made so many homemade ice creams and treats using this bad boy since. I seriously have not bought ice cream now in years. We make it fresh, we know all the ingredients that go into it (often using seasonal fruit and fruits from our own garden), and we are always experimenting with new ideas and flavors, and now refreshing beverages. Hence, the birth of the root beer slushie.
