This Frozen Butterbeer Recipe will transport you straight to the Three Broomsticks! Inspired by the frozen drink in Harry Potter!
A few years ago we planned a trip to Harry Potter World. I can honestly say, it was the best family trip we have ever taken. All of us agreed, and that is really saying something since my husband is not a fan of the Potter series.
Of course, while we were there we had to drink about a million butterbeer. The frozen version was by far our favorite.
This homemade version tastes so similar to the one we had in the park! It was like taking a trip down memory lane with every sip. Butterscotch sauce is blended with vanilla bean ice cream and topped with a little cream soda. The flavor is unbeatable!
Frozen Butterbeer Ingredients:
We have tried a dozen different versions of this recipe. This one was honestly perfect and super simple. The ingredient list is short and the flavor is bold.
- Vanilla Bean Ice Cream- I recommend using a high quality ice cream, like Tillamook.
- Butterscotch Syrup– I have a great homemade version, or you can find this by the ice cream in the grocery store.
- Cream Soda- One bottle is what you will need. Preferably chilled.
- Ice- See the note below.
- Whipped Cream- Optional, but super fun to top the drink with!
Tips for this recipe:
- Chill all of the ingredients. Having cold soda and syrup will make this get to the perfect frosty consistency.
- In fact, chill your glasses too! Not required, but it adds a great finishing touch.
- Try making your own butterscotch syrup. I have a recipe on my site. It can make all the difference.
- Instead of using ice, freeze cream soda in an ice cube tray.
How to make Harry Potter Butterbeer:
- Place all of the ingredients into a blender.
- Blend 30 seconds to 1 minute, or until milk shake consistency.
- Divide between two glasses, top with whipped cream and a drizzle of butterscotch sauce, and enjoy!
