Healthy Root Beer Float with Zevia

Recently the smart soda company, Zevia asked if I’d participate in a their “Flavors of Summer” campaign. I love Zevia, so it was a hands down yes. In fact, my family and I have been drinking Zevia sodas for years because they taste great and are sugar-free. What makes Zevia sweet you ask? The sweetness comes from the plant-based ingredient stevia – which makes it all natural and zero calories. Because there are no refined sugars or artificial sweeteners, Zevia is a healthier soda and a smart choice.

For the campaign, Zevia asked me and a few other bloggers to create a summertime drink using one of their 15 yummy flavors. I polled my kids and they selected Zevia’s Ginger Root Beer. It’s what we use to create healthy root beer floats – the kids LOVE them. It also inspired me to created an intimate summertime root beer float party for kids.

Using a dairy free, coconut ice cream, I added two scoops to a chilled Zevia Ginger Root Beer, popped in a straw and a spoon – that’s it. So simple. It wouldn’t be the “Simplified Bee” if it was a complicated drink ;)

This healthy root beer is a great choice for kids with food allergies or sensitivities because with Zevia and coconut ice cream they can be made sugar-free, dairy-free and gluten free. It would be fun served at a summertime kids’ birthday party because always nice to have a dessert that the whole party can enjoy!

For the decor, I selected a festive southwestern inspired table runner. The beautiful pattern and muted color palette inspired me to create the box and tray. I’ll be covering how I did it in a follow-up post.

And how cute are the compostable wood cutlery with grey stars? Susty Party supplied them and the other party supplies (including the plate below) that are all non toxic, renewable and compostable. Love that!!!
