Root Beer Float

1 packet Medifast Vanilla shke
1.5 cups of diet Root Beer - make sure you get 0 carbs
8-10 ice cubes
Place ice cubes and soda in a blender. Add the diet soda, shake and mix for 10-15 seconds or until most of the ice cubes are crushed.

This counts for 1 Medfiast meal.

I tried the Root Beer float and my MB exploded when I took the lid off with the fizzz in the RB. What did I do wrong?

Oh no! I am not sure, I made mine in the Magic Bullet and it worked out fine. What brand of Root Beer did you use? I used Diet A&W - maybe some are more carbonated?

I sooooo want to try this but am a little scared. Cody Jo, when you are making this, do you put the whole soda in the blender first before blending or kind of blend, add, blend, add? Does that makes sense? BTW, your recipes on here are great. I am going to buy a sandwich maker stat. ~ellekay from mymedifast

So I just put in the soda, but Joan did post above it exploded on her! Maybe try it with flat or partly flat soda. I haven't had that problem, but I would hate for someone else to (again).

I tried crushing some of the ice first the way you do when you make soft serve. Then I added the shake mix and some of the Root Beer. When that was mixed, I added the Root Beer in several more "layers" for lack of a better word. I was worried about exploding my Magic Bullet. I used the largest cup. I had enough ice that I wasn't able to use the whole Diet Root Beer, but it worked GREAT!

I'm going to try this right now! And please, if there are more Medifast bloggers out there, I'd love to have your page. I did MF in 2008 and lost 57#, then had crisis in family and gained plus fell off my horse...twice! Out of commission and just didn't care. Weight skyrocketed to 330#. I'm now at 274, but losing interest fast. Everytime something bad happens, I wanna just give up. So I want to read a lot of blogs and get re-energized! Thanks!

This sounds great! I'm just starting Medifast today and looking for some fun ways to enjoy it.

Wow, I am one of those folks who have tried many different protein powders and cannot get past the taste in any kind of a drink. I was very impressed with adding the shake protein to my ice ans root beer and I am quite impressed and very pleased with the taste of it. I did go ahead and totally completely blend the ice cubes up in my blender, then I added my root beer and mix that with the ice really good and then I proceeded to add the shake mix and it came out great.
