Easy Low Carb Root Beer Float

Root beer floats are a classic summer treat but they aren’t easy to accomplish on a low carb or diabetes-friendly diet. Even if you can find low carb ice cream at your store, it’s often full of nasty chemicals. But it’s so easy to make some sweetened whipped cream and freeze it, and it has the exact same consistency in the float as ice cream does. And these days, there are plenty of “diet” root beers to choose from, many of which are made with healthier, all-natural sweeteners. So raise a frosty glass of low carb root beer float, because it won’t raise your blood sugar.

Ingredients:

1 cup whipping cream

Sweetener equivalent to 3 tbsp sugar (powdered or liquid sweetener is best)

1/2 tsp vanilla extract

1 12-ounce bottle or can diet root beer (Virgil’s or Zevia are both free of sucralose)

Preparation:

In a medium bowl, beat whipping cream with sweetener and vanilla extract until it holds stiff peaks. Drop by large spoonfuls onto a waxed paper-lined cookie sheet. Freeze 1 to 2 hours.

    Wow! This I will have to make! I just drank my last Zevia root beer yesterday. I have strep throat and thought it might make it feel better. I doubt I can get Virgil’s in my small town, but I can get Zevia. Thanks, Carolyn! You are amazing! I love not having to make any ice cream, too!
