Low Calorie (Mock) Butterbeer (30 Calories)

This past weekend we decided to take a box set of Harry Potter movies we had purchased over the Christmas holiday and have a Harry Potter movie night. In honor of Harry Potter I decided to make butterbeer to go along with our popcorn.

Unfortunately butterbeer is super high in calories and loaded full of sugar. When I am not as concerned about watching my calories I would love to try this recipe for butterbeer, but that won’t be for a while. In the mean time I found a very low calorie recipe for butterbeer on Pinterest. I was super excited to give this recipe a try.

It’s super simple, and super delicious. OK so is it as good as the real deal?… NO, but is it a great dessert for someone trying to watch their calorie intake? You bet it is!  I have even left the cool-whip frozen in this recipe to make it like a low calorie ice cream float! Excellent!!

  • 2 tsp. butter flavor extract (zero calories)
  • 3 tbsp. cool whip (I used low fat) (30 calories)
  • 1 can diet cream soda (A&W is the best) (zero calories)


  1. Place butter extract at the bottom of a glass
  2. Pour cream soda on top of the butter extract
  3. Top with cool whip then stir
