When we were in Universal Orlando the kids wanted souvenirs, and all I wanted was more Frozen Butterbeer. It’s that good!

After trying both frozen and regular ButterBeer, we all preferred the frozen variety.

The texture is like a slurpee, it’s the best on a hot day.

Frozen ButterBeer Recipe

2 – 2 liters of cream soda
1 container of whipping cream
1 jar of butterscotch ice cream topping

To start, you will need a good blender that can blend ice well. I’m in love with my Blendtec Blender, it’s the best blender I’ve ever had. Start with one of the 2 liters of cream soda and freeze small portions of it in plastic cups. You could use ice cube trays as well, what ever you have. Freeze the soda for a few hours. While the soda is freezing, whip the cream and add a few tablespoons of the butterscotch topping to flavor it as you whip. Do not over whip the cream. It should look and feel light, not heavy.

Blend the frozen cream soda with some of the cream soda that is not frozen for an icy or slushie type texture. Add more of the butterscotch topping into the cream soda while you blend.

To serve, pour the blended mixture into a cup and top with the butterscotch flavored whip cream.

There you have it! At home pretty-darn-close-to-the-real-stuff Frozen ButterBeer. Yum!

    After reading your post I have been craving it too. We don’t have butterscotch ice cream topping in Australia. Will try it with caramel and cross my fingers!
