Keto Root Beer Float Ingredients
Ice Cream: To keep this recipe keto-friendly and make the root beer flavor pop, I used sugar-free vanilla ice cream.
Root Beer: For this recipe, I used Zevia Ginger Root Beer. But they have so many great flavors to choose from, you can choose your signature flavor.
Optional ingredients: You can dress up your float by adding sugar-free whipped cream or sugar-free chocolate syrup… maybe both!
Zevia is a lifesaver and a great alternative to make any recipe keto-friendly. You can also head to the Zevia site for more soda-themed recipes!
