Seriously, is there anything more refreshing and satisfying than a Root Beer Float? Just add alcohol and you have a delicious adult drink.
In the beginning I held onto my guns. I would drink either gin or vodka with soda and lime. If I had a shot it would be either whiskey or more vodka.
That was one of the reasons I started keto. It gave me the freedom to still spend nights with friends drinking alcohol while I was still losing weight!
One day I was browsing the Reddit Keto group on Facebook and came across some people enjoying their diet sodas with a dash of cream.
I was a little skeptical and to be honest it seemed a little weird.
I injected a little bit into my diet Dr. Pepper and took a drink. OH MY GOD. It was like a root beer float, only with Dr. Pepper.
It was perfectly creamy and such a great treat.
This drink is very easy to customize to exactly what you have on hand.
If you’ve run out of heavy whipped cream and happen to have low-carb ice cream in the freezer, you can use this too.
You can use chocolate ice cream or even a few small scoops of vanilla ice cream.
Just pour the root beer over the ice, stir and enjoy.
Ice cream trucks are a great treat for kids and who would ever know they are so low in sugar?
Just make sure you prepare your drink in a tall glass so that no soda overflows.
I used The Kraken Spiced Rum for this recipe, but you can use whatever you want!
As always, remember to be responsible when drinking – especially because it is VERY easy to get drunk on a ketogenic diet.
There are many types of low carb alcohol to choose from, so find one that suits your taste.
