Summer is just around the corner, and we’ve already been enjoying pretty warm temperatures in Arizona. We are so ready for some fun summer treats, like root beer floats which are one of my husband’s favorite summer treats. We also love popsicles in the summer, so I decided to combine both ideas together and create root beer float pops we could enjoy indulge guilt free!

I started by picking up a bottle of the new A&W Ten at my local Safeway store. The new TEN calorie drinks have all the great taste you expect but with only 10 calories per serving and less sugar.

Healthier Root Beer Float Pops

  • A&W Ten Root Beer
  • Fat Free Vanilla Frozen Yogurt

The root beer float pops are super easy to make, simple place a few tablespoons of frozen yogurt in each dixie cup and then add the root beer. Be sure to leave a little room at the top of each cup for the when the float freezes and expands in the cup.  I used room temperature root beer so that it would melt and mix with the frozen yogurt. The root beer float pops work and taste better when using a more homogeneous mixture.  Add a little plastic wrap to the top of each cup and poke a popsicle stick through it. The plastic wrap helps keep the sticks standing up while they pops freeze. Stick them in the freezer for a few hours and you’re done!

These popsicles are bite sized, perfect for little kids to enjoy and adults to eat guilt free. Heck you could go crazy and eat 2 or 3 of them with a clear conscious! 😉

What’s your favorite popsicle flavor?



  1. […] Summer time is here and the temperature is perfect for enjoying a yummy frozen dessert. While kids are easily placated with a box of ice cream novelties in the fridge, it’s nice to have a few other options when having guests over.  To avoid turning on the oven and heating the house up unnecessarily, we often grill dinner during the summer. The same goes for making dessert, choosing an option that can be made ahead of time, avoiding the use of the oven during the day. I’ve rounded up a few of my favorite frozen dessert recipes online including easy ice cream cakes and mudpie to root beer float pops! […]
