Happy National Black Cow Day!

I can't believe there is a holiday named after the wonderful concoction that is a root beer float featuring chocolate ice cream instead of vanilla. My Southern husband introduced me to this treat, so I would like to share his recipe with you today:

Fill a tall water glass or sundae class about half way with Barq's root beer. It has to be Barq's, because Barq's is best!

Add 2 scoops of chocolate ice cream. After foam settles, add more root beer to fill glass to top.

Top with lots of whipped cream and chocolate sprinkles.

Add spoon and large straw and enjoy!

Note: To cut down sugar or dairy content, substitute Barq's with Zevia (stevia-sweetened) root beer and the chocolate ice cream with Tofutti or So Delicious ice cream (made from coconut milk. It is definitely yummy.)
