So it’s been about 6 months since we joined the gym. We try to get there at least 3-4 times per week. Fortunately the kids swim team & rock climbing practice/classes happen about that often & it’s all in the same facility. It’s pretty cool that us parents can also get in a workout while the kids are busy working out in the pool or on the wall. We have been really good about limiting large heavy meals to just a couple times per week too. We have been trading them out for lighter versions, especially on gym nights. You have probably noticed that I am sharing far fewer treats here on the blog as well. That’s because I have revamped what I classify as a treat & making better choices on a more frequent basis. One thing I love to have is a root beer float. It’s something that conjures up fond childhood memories & I will never turn one down. So you can imagine how excited I was when I created this Banana Root Beer Float that is SUPER low calorie. It doesn’t bust the plan. Check out the recipe – you will LOVE it!
I swapped out the traditional vanilla ice cream for low cal Banana Ice Cream.
Then I swapped out regular A&W Root Beer for the NEW A&W Ten Root Beer.
It has only 10 calories per serving – YAY!
It tastes every bit as good as a traditional root beer float. I felt like I was having my usual treat so I was very satisfied.
My family – LOVED these too. I can’t even express just how much.

That looks amazing. I love root beer floats. I would not have thought of using a banana. Great idea.
