At the Hogle Zoo, they serve a really yummy soft-serve ice cream with different flavors swirled in. We’ve only gotten the root beer, and it’s a favorite – especially when we’re at the zoo when it’s really hot, which has been all summer long. I found a root beer sherbet recipe yesterday that we made today and is SO good!
24 oz root beer (let them sit a bit and get flat)
1/2 cup sweetened condensed milk
1 cup whole milk or half and half (I used fat-free half and half)
Combine the ingredients and let the mixture sit in the fridge until very cold, even overnight. Process in your ice cream maker for about 20 minutes. Transfer to a air-tight container and let the sherbet get hard in the freezer. Enjoy!
The entire recipe has 1040 calories, 12 grams of fat, and makes appx 4 cups of sherbet. 4 servings = 5 WW points each. 5 servings = 4 points per serving.
