  1. This really satisfies my craving for something sweet. I did make some whipped cream with vanilla and a little splenda for some pretend icecream. I also tried it with diet orange soda, it was great too. So many variations are possible with this. I look forward to trying more.
  2. This was even better than the real thing in my opinion! I whipped the cream until it was really thick with my mixer and just used a big dollop in a tall glass of cold diet A&W .. what a treat! It really helped me with my dessert craving! Thanks for posting this, next time I am going to try the same with diet orange soda.
  3. This is definitely a great treat, especially for summertime. I really wanted that ice cream root beer float, so I gave it some thought. I whipped some cream w a little Splenda and vanilla, then put mounds on a foil covered plate and put them in the freezer. Once firm, I added to glass of root beer. It made great foam and had that nice firm cream floating around to scoop out with a spoon. So hard to believe it's low carb, and even great for a treat during induction. YUMMY!
  4. I love this low carb root beer float. It's even better with a dollop of extra creamy cool whip topping and it's still low carb.
  5. After being sugar free for 3 months, the soda was decadently sweet & with the addition of the cream it was amazing. So satisfying.


  1. This is called a "Farmers Soda" in Indiana and it is delicious. If it leaves a film in your mouth, try using light whipping instead of heavy cream. Heavy cream has more fat than the light one therefor, less coating on your pallet.
