A low-calorie recipe on a summer day
Truth: other than cherry-flavored diet soda, ginger ale and root beer, I'm just not a big fan of carbonated soft drinks. One of my favorite sweet treats, though, is a root beer float. There is just something so satisfying about the combination of the ice cream with the beverage. Why? No idea. I just love me a root beer float on a hot day. Needless to say, I was thrilled to discover that today is National Root Beer Float Day. You better believe I'm going to celebrate this particular food holiday. By mixing a Diet Barq's (or Mug or A&W, etc.) with a scoop or two of Breyers CarbSmart vanilla ice cream, you will find yourself with quite the delicious - yet low-cal summer treat. Go on and try it too. I dare ya!
