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.
