One of my childhood favourites was indulging in root beer floats. Unfortunately, I wasn't aware of the consequences of consuming bone-erroding sodas and mucus-forming dairy products. Alas, I have found the perfect way to mock the traditional "Root Beer Float" with this 100% RAW, vegan, gluten-free root beer float! You won't be disappointed.

- 10 pitted medjool dates, soaked for 2-3 hours (discard soak water, or use towards water below)
- 3 cups water, or young thai coconut water
*Blend the above ingredients in a high speed blender until smooth
- 2 ripe, spotty bananas, peeled and frozen
*You can blend these frozen bananas in a blender like a Vitamix, OR you can have the pleasure of making more soft-serve ice cream with a juicer like an Omega or Champion juicer!
Pour the root beer into a tall, chilled glass, and scoop the ice cream into the root beer. Voila! You now have your own raw, 100% guilt-free root beer float! Chill with ice cubes & enjoy immediately :)
