Beat the Heat ~ Root Beer Floats

Just about every where in the good ol' USA, it's HOT! Staying cool is tough and air conditioning is a blessing!

Need a little low cal pick-me-up during this hot weather? Try this light and cold root beer float:

Use a nice tall chilled glass
Add 3 generous scoops of frozen, fat free Cool Whip
Fill the glass with diet A & W Root Beer

That's it! Now you have a refreshing, low cal, low carb, yummy float!

How about other variations? Diet orange soda? I bet that tastes like an old fashioned creamsicle! Any other ideas?

These vintage iced tea or parfait spoons would be perfect with that good (healthier) old fashioned float! Cheerful Fiestaware colors too!

You can find the spoons at The Pink Rose Cottage!

Stay cool my friends!


  1. Sounds yummy. I think I will try it with my soy whipped creme that I found.

  2. What a fantastic idea to use Cool Whip rather than ice cream! You are clever!

    Your Hollyhocks are just beautiful! I gave up on mine as the beautiful leaves were always eaten by something that made them look like lace. Sounds pretty, but it wasn't!
