Homemade Root Beer


We had keto Root beer floats at the zoo for Kai’s birthday at the zoo!

My friend Rebecca told me that the thermos softens the ice cream just enough (which can be pretty hard) by the time her kids are at lunch! Find my ice cream HERE.

Homemade Root-beer

Maria Emmerich


  • 40 1/2-inch pieces of 1/4-inch thick sassafras saplings
  • 2 cloves
  • 1/2 tsp anise seeds
  • 4 allspice berries
  • 1 cinnamon stick
  • 4 cups water
  • 1/4 cup yacon syrup
  • 1 cup Natural Sweetener
  • 2 quarts sparkling water *I used my soda streamer


  • Clean the roots and cut into 1/2 inch long pieces.
  • Place the root pieces, cloves, anise seeds, allspice berries, and cinnamon stick into a small saucepan. Cover in 4 cups water.
  • Turn heat to high and bring to a boil, then reduce to a simmer for 20 minutes.
  • Add the yacon syrup and simmer for another 5 minutes. Remove from heat.
  • Strain the root liquid through a cheesecloth into a medium sized bowl.
  • Add the natural sweetener. Stir well and allow to cool. Store in mason jars in the fridge until ready to drink.
  • To make the root beer; fill a glass with ice cubes (OR "Healthified" Ice Cream!), start with a 1:2 ratio, add the syrup and soda water (1/3 cup syrup to 2/3 cups sparkling water), then adjust to your desired liking (more sparkling water if you want it more diluted, more syrup if you prefer it stronger).
