I wouldn't say that it tastes like the real thing, but it is ok. I was torn between 3 and 4 stars for this, because my coolwhip looked sort of odd in the cup and was vaguely unappealing. But I found that if I let the coolwhip sit in the cold soda for a bit it got the hard consistency that I like for my floats to have, and that improved it. Not as creamy as a regular float. And I would probably be more satisfied with a float using fat free 1 point for 1/2 cup vanilla ice cream. But in a pinch, it satisfies that need for something sweet. Thanks, Audrey! A footnote: The first time I made this I used Diet Dr Pepper and it was ok. But I made it again with root beer and was much happier. I also reduced the amount of soda a bit (I just used a smaller glass) but kept the coolwhip at the same amount and that improved this tremendously!
RECIPE SUBMITTED BY
I am a mother of three and live in central Pennsylvania. My children were very active in after school activities and found we weren't spending anytime together at meal time. In 1998, I decided to start cooking my dinners in a crockpot so that we could have a home cooked meal together once everyone came home. My children now get so excited to see what we are having to eat and love the smell when they walk in the door. My family calls me the crock pot queen. LOL I use my crock pot everyday of the year. <br> <br>My three children are now in college and before they come home they request their favorite meal. I still continue to cook in the crock pot for my husband and I. It is nice after a long day to know your meal is ready. It also helps in keeping my grocery bill down. With zaar, I can print my shopping list and that is all I purchase is the ingredients on that list. <br> <br>Now, my two daughters have been crock pot cooking while in college. They find it is easy to cook for the themselves and their friends. It is an easy way to have friends over for dinner after classes <br> <br>I still love trying new recipes and purchasing cookbooks, especially crock pot cookbooks. <br> <br>Happy Cooking!
