Loved this! One of the best pies I've ever made. Very quick and easy. I didn't make this with fat free anything because I had all the regular ingredients. I also used a teaspoon of root beer extract! It really did taste like a root beer float! Will be making this again and again!

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Jan. 7, 2014 Edited Jan. 12, 2014

This was very good, especially considering it had fewer calories than one's typical cream pie. It was so easy to make. I just had a lot of other pies I liked so much better that I had to put a 4 instead of a 5. By the way, we only put ours in the freezer for about 4 hours, and it was nice and firm then. It tasted like a real root beer float.
