Root Beer Float Pie
Total TimePrep: 15 min. + chilling
This pie was an absolute hit with my family! I will definitely be making it again.?? After reading the reviews I decided to make it with regular root beer and pudding. I also used a small box of pudding instead of the 1 ounce the recipe called for and it set up nicely. My grandsons thought the pudding filling was vanilla ice cream. Easy and delicious!! ??
I made this recipe today and it perfect. I used Diet IBC Rootbeer which has a good flavor. Make sure it is very cold and it activates the pudding and thickens. This recipe can be used as a base for other flavors as well.
Just looking at the recipe, fat free / sugar free= flavor free. Change everything thing to fat and sugar and add 1 tsp root beer extract, I bet that would help. Not as healthy as the current recipe, but who eats pie to be healthy!
Maybe adding a root beer extract would add to the root beer flavor.
I made this using a really good full flavored local brewed rootbeer and was very disappointed. It sure didn't have much flavor.
It was okay. Root beer flavor was not very strong. I served it frozen. Will probably just serve old fashioned root beer floats next time.
Added a little root beer flavoring. It tastes great, but I've made it twice and it didn't set up too well.
Could not taste the root beer. 3 stars because my husband liked it.

Note to cleanmo (and anyone else who doesn't know), almond milk won't do, its the enzymes in the milk, whether skim, 2%, or whole (not the fat) that reacts with the rennet in the instant pudding to make it set up.
