    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!
  Recipe Makeover

    3/4 cup chilled apricot nectar
    1/2 cup chilled sparkling water
    2 scoops low-fat melba frozen yogurt (peach melba)

  Traditional Recipe

    10 oz Root Beer
    2 full scoops vanilla ice cream


    Put juice and sparkling water into large tall glass. Top with frozen yogurt.


    If melba frozen yogurt isn't available, or for variety, use peach or orange frozen low-fat yogurt or sorbet. If desired, you can further lower the carbs/sugars, my using low-carb products.
