Since my fist shopping trip to ALDI, I've been back several times to shop for our family. We've enjoyed the incomparable savings that ALDI offers. I also love that I can feel good about picking up snacks like the SimplyNature® Organic Honey Teddy Grahams and the kids love them! I even decided to use them in the cool and creamy drink I made the kids. I thought that a sweet treat was in order to usher in summer.
Summertime is the perfect time to indulge in an occasional sweet treat like a root beer float. It was so easy to make this caramel root beer float using ingredients I purchased at my local ALDI store here in California.
You need just two items to make a Caramel "Caribou" Root Beer Float:
Belmont Caramel Caribou Premium Ice Cream
Sudz Root Beer
Pour some root beer over 1-2 scoops of the ice cream and voila! You are set! If you want to send your caramel root beer float over the top, you can top it with this homemade root beer whipped cream and crushed grahams.
Homemade Whipped Cream & Topping Ingredients:
1 cup of Baker's Corner Powdered Sugar
1 cup Countryside Creamery heavy whipping cream
Splash of Sudz Root Beer
1/8 tsp Stonemill Essentials Pure Almond Extract
SimplyNature® Kids Organic Honey Teddy Bear Graham Snack Packs
To make the Almond Root Beer Whipped Cream:
Add 1 cup of powdered sugar to 1 cup of heavy whipping cream,
and then add a splash of Sudz Root Beer.
Whip with a hand mixer or stand mixer until soft peaks form.
Scoop the whipped cream into a small plastic bag, cutting the bottom tip so you can pipe it on top of the caramel root beer float!
Add crushed SimplyNature® Honey Teddy Graham Snack Packs on top.
Drink and enjoy!

While we obviously partake in occasional sweets in this house like the caramel root beer float recipe above, I love that our ALDI grocery list can include items that are good for you too like fresh organic produce, organic snacks, and food items without preservatives.
