    Homemade butterbeer Recipe -a creamy butterscotch flavored float inspired by Harry Potter!

    Butterbeer recipe

    Earlier this year I posted more about our trip at Universal Orlando and I’m back with more. But first let’s talk about butterbeer. Has anyone tried it? Frozen is my favorite. It’s hard to describe how amazing it is while walking around the park, so of course I had to re-create this delicious drink at home for all of you to make. It is the perfect summer drink! If you like butterscotch flavoring you will LOVE this frozen butterbeer recipe. It tastes like a butterscotch creamsicle.

    How to make butterbeer

    It only takes a few minutes to make this delicious drink. All you need to make this drink is ice cream, butterscotch syrup, cream soda and ice. Then you’ll basically just blend until smooth. If you’d like to recreate the frothy top, add some whip cream and butterscotch syrup on top! Yum!

      Here is the butterscotch topping I used in my drink. I found it at my local grocery store near the ice cream toppings

      We absolutely loved The Islands of Adventure and Harry Potter World.I loved the whole atmosphere in Harry Potter World. My husband is a big Harry Potter fan so he was excited to go on all the rides. I could of stayed there all day and just shopped, while sipping butter beer of course!

      The shops were my absolute favorite! I LOVED the candy store. I bought a chocolate frog, a chocolate wand and chocolate flies. Yes I like chocolate… ;) The pumpkin juice was yummy too! Such a fun place to visit and of course sip on butter beer! YUM!! My family had such a wonderful time at Universal Orlando. It was so good to be able to spend quality time together. It was also so fun  meeting the staff at Universal and the other bloggers and their families. I feel so grateful that my family had the opportunity to go on this amazing trip. This will definitely be a trip we remember the rest of our lives!
