Root Beer Float Pie

This easy-to-make pie was a perfect dessert for an All-American holiday, Memorial Day!
This dessert does need to be refrigerated for several hours and can even be made the day before. The root beer flavor is very subtle and not over-powering. I think you will really like it.

serves 8 ( 5 points +)

  • 1 carton ( 8 oz) Cool Whip Free
  • ¾ c. cold root beer
  • ½ c. skim milk
  • 1 pkg. sugar -free instant vanilla pudding mix
  • 1 graham cracker pie crust ( 9")
  • maraschino cherries ( optional)
Whisk together the root beer, pudding and milk until set. Let stand 2 minutes. Fold in half of the Cool Whip and transfer to the pie crust. Top with remaining Cool Whip. Cover and refrigerate for several hours or overnight. Top each piece with a cherry right before serving, if desired.
