Keto Spiked Root Beer Float

Seriously, is there anything more refreshing and satisfying than a Root Beer Float? Just add alcohol and you have a delicious adult drink.

In the beginning I stayed with my weapons. I would drink either gin or vodka with soda and lime. If I had a shot it would be either whiskey or more vodka.

That was one of the reasons I started keto. It gave me the freedom to spend even more nights with friends drinking alcohol while I was still losing weight!

Thank you, reddit!

One day I was browsing the Reddit Keto group on Facebook and came across some people enjoying their diet sodas with a dash of cream.

I was a little skeptical and to be honest it seemed a little weird.

I injected a little bit of Dr. Pepper and took a drink. OH MY GOD. It was like a root beer float, only with Dr. Pepper.

It was perfectly creamy and such a great treat.


This drink is very easy to customize to exactly what you have on hand.

If you run out of heavy whipped cream and happen to have low carb ice cream in the freezer, you can use this too.

You can use chocolate ice cream or even a few small scoops of vanilla ice cream.

Just pour the root beer over the ice, stir and enjoy.

Ice cream trucks are a great treat for kids and who would ever know they are so low in sugar?

Just make sure to make your drink in a tall glass so that soda doesn’t overflow.

Which alcohol?

I used The Kraken Spiced Rum for this recipe, but you can use whatever you want!

As always, remember to be responsible when drinking – especially because it is VERY easy to get drunk on a ketogenic diet.

There are many types of low-carb alcohol to choose from, so find one that suits your taste.
