Recipe: Root Beer Float Popsicles (Great for Zoku!)

Root Beer Float Popsicles
I know “popsicle” is a brand name, but it’s like Kleenex, you know? I try to train myself to use the term “ice pop” but it feels so unnatural. It’s just not right!

So, on topic: Root Beer Float Popsicles. I am still madly in love with my Zoku Quick Pop Maker (if loving the Zoku is wrong, I don’t wanna be right) and when I got syrups from Pittsburgh Soda Pop, I knew I wanted to use them to make popsicles. Of all the many, many popsicles I’ve made this summer, these were my husband’s favorite. They’re like root beer floats, but on a stick (and with fewer calories). Use soymilk and soy pudding for a dairy free version.

Root Beer Float Popsicles

Yield: 6

Although these are great for the Zoku, you can use regular popsicle molds too. They taste like a root beer float on a stick!


  • 1/2 c. water
  • 1/4 c. root beer syrup
  • 1 vanilla pudding cup (I use ZenSoy)
  • 1/4 c. milk (I use soymilk)
  • 1 1/2 tbsp. granulated sugar
  • 1/2 tbsp. vanilla extract


  1. Zoku Instructions: Combine water and syrup in a small bowl and pudding, milk, sugar, and extract in a second small bowl. Make layered pops by alternating syrup and vanilla mixtures (wait until first layer is frozen before adding another) or make creamsicle-like pops by filling mold with syrup, allowing edges to freeze, suctioning remaining syrup from center, and filling with vanilla mixture.
  2. Popsicle Mold Instructions: Fill each mold halfway with vanilla mixture and freeze until frozen. Fill remainder of mold with syrup mixture and return to freezer until solid. (Note that not all popsicle molds are suitable for making layered pops!

    What a creative idea! Those sound tasty. And I always say popsicle too even though it's trademarked. But I don't say Kleenex – I say tissue. I'm seriously wanting a Zoku now. You keep tempting me with your tasty concoctions.

    Wow, I am totally going to try these – they look delicious! I love Root Beer!
    Thanks for linking up at my Not Going to BlogHer Linky! (Sorry I'm so late in visiting – it's been crazy lately!) I'm a new follower! Have a great rest of the week!

    What a fun ice pop! Ya, I can't say that either. I'll have to try these. I think they will get gobbled. I'm thinking this recipe will be easy for me to switch up too, by changing the syrup.

    Those look so fun! I've never thought about the popsicle being a trade name thing – I call all of them popsicles 🙂
