Guilt Free Vanilla Bean Root Beer Float That Will Rock Your World and an Honest Tea Giveaway


 Soda has never been allowed in our house. My husband and I rarely drink it and the kids have never had it.When I received a large shipment of Honest teas, juices and their Fizz.... my kids were in heaven. They never get juice either! I must really be depriving them because when they opened the box, their eyes lit up.


While my son was on April vacation the weather was great, I figured a nice treat would be a root beer float. I wasn't expecting to blow my kid's minds or anything. Floats were something I had often as a kid and never considered them  special.

It was like doing a science experiment with them.... first we scooped our 120 calorie frozen yogurt (that SOOO does not taste low fat) then we poured our zero calorie Honest Root Beer Fizz over the tops and watched the fizzy foamy action go to work. The kids loved the foam and had so much fun pouring the soda over the frozen yogurt and watching it foam up over the sides making a pleasant sticky mess for later...

While the kids were getting their minds blown over the foam action happening inside their mugs. My mind was too busy being blown by the fact that this treat was only 120 calories. Typically a root beer float of this size would be about 385 calories with a sugar and fat content that is off the charts. This 120 float tasted just as good if not better.

Honest Fizz zero calorie sodas are organic, naturally sweetened and do not taste like a "diet" soda. They still have that great taste I look forward to but without the guilt! With flavors like Root Beer, Professor Fizz (my favorite...tastes much like the popular Dr. Pepper... but is better and zero guilt!) Orange Pop, and Lemon Limey, there is something for every set of taste buds.





Guilt Free 120 Calorie Vanilla Bean Root Beer Float

Ingredients:

1 can Honest Fizz Root Beer
1/2 cup Kemps Low Fat Vanilla Bean Frozen Yogurt

Directions:

In a large mug or cup, scoop 1/2 cup of frozen yogurt into the bottom. Pour 1 can of Honest Fizz Root Beer over the top. 

Enjoy :)

  2. Hmm it seems like your website ate my first comment (it was super long) so I guess I'll just sum it up what I had written and say, I'm thoroughly enjoying
    your blog. I too am an aspiring blog blogger but I'm still new to everything. Do you have any suggestions for newbie blog writers? I'd definitely appreciate it.

    The Limeade was right in my face when I went to check out the products and it looks AMAZING for summer, but my kids LOVE root beer. Funny because I never buy soda or juice either so when we have it it's a real treat!

  14. I've only tried the Honest Kids drink pouches (the only 'juice box' type drink I will give my son on occasion), but I will be searching for the Honest Fizz Orange Pop and Root Beer...I haven't had either for several years since I cut out HFCS and other artificial ingredients. The Root Beer Floats look AMAZING - can't wait to make them, as well as Orange Pop Floats :-) Thank you for sharing!

  36. Beautiful photos, Carrie! And good for you for not buying pop and sugar drinks. My parents didn't either. When I was a kid, we only drank pop when we went to big Chinese banquets. To this day, drinking pop reminds me of special occasions, especially Orange Crush (my fave!). I love that you used low fat yogurt to cut down on the calories in these floats. I wouldn't feel guilt about slurping a few of these!

  37. I'd like to try the lemony lime. We drink lots of water with lime wedges so I bet this would be a nice treat.
