About this Recipe Makeover

Floats are an American favorite, but traditional, diner root beer and other regular soft drink floats are high in calories, fat and sugar. This fruit juice float breaks the barriers of the typical float.

By replacing the regular soft drink with the natural sweetness of fruit nectar, and the full-fat ice cream with low-fat frozen yogurt, this float is a refreshing treat for the whole family!

Ingredients Show Makeover Show Traditional

  • 3/4 cup chilled apricot nectar

  • 10 oz Root Beer
  • 2 full scoops vanilla ice cream
