Our local fair has a stand that sells its own homemade root beer that is just amazing! But better than that, they have slushies machines to make root beer slushies that I wait for every year!

It’s such a fun summer treat and something I don’t see hardly anywhere else!

But since the fair is only once a year, I decided it was time to make my own favorite root beer slushies during the other 51 weeks when I’m craving a root beer.

Luckily, these are as easy as can be with only 2 ingredients (and the one ingredient is ice!).

How to Make Root Beer Slushies

Looking for a creative way to enjoy your beer? Check out our guide on how to make beer slushies!

The only ingredients you’ll need are 2 cans of root beer and ice!

There are a couple of steps, though, but I promise this is so easy it barely qualifies as a recipe.

Start by placing one can of root beer in the fridge so that it’s nice and cold by the time you’re ready to use it.

Take your second can and pour it into an ice cube tray or another freezer-friendly container. I used a silicone cupcake mold because I knew I would be able to easily remove the root beer ice when I needed it.

Pour the whole can into your molds and then freeze until completely frozen solid. This takes about 4-6 hours so make sure you plan ahead.

I often will just freeze these and keep them in the freezer for when I have a craving!

A little tip, it’s easier if you put your ice cube tray or mold on a small baking sheet. Less spillage that way… not that I’m speaking from experience or anything.

Once your root beer ice is frozen, remove it from the freezer.

Put the root beer ice in a blender with the cold can of root beer and about 8-10 ice cubes.

Pulse for about 30 seconds until it’s all combined and then pour into your glasses and enjoy!
