Default Root beer float

So for years at work I have been making a sort of pseudo root beer float by simply adding some half an half to root beer to root beer to simulate the creaminess of melted ice cream and I thought why not make a huge batch of this with french vanilla creamer.
My question is. Would this work in a keg: to make a root beer from scratch and add some vanilla creamer and then Carb it. It sounds simple enough in theory but I'm not sure how cream reacts with Co2 or being carbonated. Would it separate like like an Irish car bomb does when you drop it and let it sit(aka curdling) or would it stay mixed and creamy?
