Sonic Root Beer Freeze

We have all had shakes, but you may have never tried a freeze. You might ask yourself what a freeze is, well a freeze is mixing up soda and ice cream, instead of ice cream and milk to make for a delightful sweet treat.  Sonic makes a host of delicious recipes, don’t miss out on other Sonic recipes.

Sonic Root Beer Freeze

I can’t tell you how many of these I enjoyed when I was in high school. On a Friday night it was important to hang out at the local Sonic Drive Inn, and circle the drive in as many times as you possibly could. We would spend the evening, drinking these Freezes and enjoying many orders of Sonic Onion Rings. While I may not cruise Sonic anymore, I can definitely enjoy a root beer freeze.

Don’t miss out on the Sonic Onion Rings,  as you really need to make that snack complete.

Sonic Root Beer Freeze

Do you enjoy shakes? Try a freeze, ice cream and soda are blended together for all sorts of creamy goodness.


  • 2 cups ice cream
  • 1/2 cup root beer


Place both ingredients into a blender, and mix for about 30 seconds on puree. Now you don't have to stop at just root beer, you can make this with Coca Cola, Dr. Pepper, or any other soda that you may like. You can also add in flavorings if you desire, a cherry, Dr. Pepper Freeze has always had a special place in my heart.
