Full of sweet, cold, creamy goodness, this slimmed down root beer float does not lack in flavor – - it tastes FANTASTIC! And because root beer floats are so All American, they would make a great addition to your Weight Watchers 4th of July Recipes!
Diet Root Beer Float Recipe
- 1 12 fl oz can of diet root beer ( I used Diet A&W Root Beer)
- 1/2 cup Breyer’s Smooth and Dreamy, No Sugar Added, French Vanilla Ice Cream
- Fat Free Reddi Whip Whipped Cream
NOTE: You can turn this into just a 1 Point Root Beer Float simply by eliminating the whipped cream and using a fat free and higher fiber vanilla ice cream.
In a tall, preferably chilled glass, pour the root beer. Then, top the root beer with the ½ cup scoop of ice cream. Top with a few short quirts of the whipped cream. Serve with a straw and a spoon.
