Coconut cream soda

A creamy and satisfying replacement for soda pop

My husband came up with this idea drink. After happily embracing the Paleo lifestyle when it helped him heal his leaky gut, he relies on his creativity to satisfy his craving for sweet snacks and beverages.

He makes the most amazing drinks when there is nothing but sparkling water in the fridge. That’s why I wasn’t surprised when he came up with the idea to make coconut cream soda.

The bubbly, creamy, sweet taste reminded me of a classic American soda fountain beverage, the cream soda. Only this one had a lot less sugar.

After I tasted it I knew I had to blog about it.

While this drink is not for everyone (people with digestive issues like IBS should not drink anything carbonated because it causes bloating and gas), it’s a wonderful replacement for  actual soda.

It’s filing and satisfying and can be made with various ingredients. And it fits one of my favorite recipe criteria, it couldn’t be easier to make.



1 cup of sparkling water

1/2 cup of coconut milk

1 teaspoon to 1 tablespoon of maple syrup (depending on how sweet you like it)

Optional: cinnamon or cardamom powder for extra color and flavor

How to

Pour coconut milk in a glass and then add maple syrup and stir in

Top off with sparkling water

Optional: Sprinkle cardamom or cinnamon powder on top


If you don’t want to sweeten you soda with maple syrup you can blend the coconut milk with half a banana and some berries.

Or add some 1/2 teaspoon of vanilla powder or extract for vanilla flavor.

Lastly, squeeze a bit of lime into it for a tropical twist.
