(Inside: My life is a series of wonderful easy Harry Potter desserts lately. A revolving door of–oooh! Hey look, it’s a Vegan Butterbeer Float!)
I am literally having so much fun with my “free time” since the kids are both in school for 2 hours every couple of days.
That’s not a TON of time. But, as I’ve found, it’s plenty of time to do things like make a Vegan Butterbeer Float to enjoy as an afternoon snack when they get home…
And, let’s just say, they’re really enjoying being in school–and the neat new treats that they’re getting when mom has some free time to herself. LOL!
My favorite part of this Vegan Butterbeer Float is that you can make it while you’re watching Fantastic Beasts or even reading Deathly Hollows.
It’s seriously a no-brainer once you get everything going.
I can’t wait to make them again next week when the kids are gone again. LOL!
If you’re digging this Vegan Butterbeer Float, be sure to pin it so that you can find it the second time you want to make it–because you’re going to want to make it again, trust me.
