I LOVE cream soda, especially when it is ice cold or on tap.
This skinny old-fashioned cream soda float is the perfect option for a healthy drink! It makes a great dessert or afternoon treat.
Cream soda has always been one of my favorite drinks. When I was a little girl, it was such a treat for me to get a cream soda from the corner store in the summers!
I love this version because it is almost calorie free, but the flavor is amazing. The bubbles it forms are definitely the cherry on top! I call this a float because it has that similar taste and texture to a coke float, but even more creamy!
PIN THIS! Skinny Old-Fashioned Cream Soda Float
- 1 12oz can cream soda (I use Zevia, zero calories & naturally sweetened, but you can use diet cream soda or even regular)
- 1 cup unsweetened vanilla almond milk
- 1 cup ice
- 1 tsp maple extract (or try maple syrup for an extra boost)
- 1 scoop of vanilla frozen yogurt
- First, blend together the milk with the ice and extract until it forms an ice cream like or slush texture.
- Add this to your glass, then along with a few scoops of frozen yogurt. I like to use arctic zero or coconut yogurt.
- Slowly pour the cream soda on top.
Chemist Tips on Skinny Cream Soda
This is a really creamy drink with the combination of almond milk, ice, and yogurt.
Since we don’t eat much dairy, I love to use this arctic zero which is lactose free and has minimal ingredients.
Another favorite is Nado Moo Coconut Yogurt which is completely dairy-free. It adds a slight hint of coconut, but it is really delicious! You can use anything you enjoy in this recipe!
To create this extra creamy texture, almond milk is the best choice. Blending it together with ice makes a great texture! You can also use cashew milk.
I love using extracts for added flavor. Maple is a great one, but you can also make your own vanilla and use that. Vanilla really intensifies the cream soda flavor which is great!
I like using Zevia since it doesn’t have artificial sweeteners, but I occasionally make this with diet or even regular. It is definitely up to you!
