Hey so… many of you know that we are obsessed with Swig, a soda and cookie drive thru based in Utah. Well, I don’t live in Utah, so that obsession is kind of a problem. I am particularly obsessed with a drink called Raspberry dream which is Dr. Pepper + Raspberry Puree + Coconut Cream. It’s HEAVEN. Pair it with a soft sugar cookie and you will hear angels singing. For real. So, I made it my mission in life to come up with a copycat recipe for my beloved Raspberry dream and after a LOT of trial and error I am sharing it with you today!
In the above picture it might look more like a milkshake, but normally you wouldn’t top it with whipped cream (although, it is delish that way) it looks more like this when you open up your lid.
I am just going to say that this drink does not photograph well! But I promise, it tastes amazing. Here are the players:
You can use either half & half or coconut coffee creamer. With half & half it’s more creamy, but with the coconut creamer it’s about half the calories. I’m not into drinking my calories so I like that! Both ways work though. I also like to use Diet Dr. Pepper personally and that’s how I order it at Swig, but again, personal preference. The real Dr. Pepper is amazing with it.
- 12 oz . Dr. Pepper or Diet Dr. Pepper
- 2 T Half & Half
- 1 T Torani Coconut Syrup
- 1/4 Cup Raspberry Puree
- Optional: Pebble Ice
Fill a cup 1/4 full with ice*
Pour in half & half, coconut syrup, raspberry puree and stir
Add Dr. Pepper and stir again.
*Pebble ice is preferred, but use whatever you got. You can buy 10 lb. bag of pebble ice at Sonic for about $2.50!
I also just found out that Torani sells raspberry puree for drinks!! I am going to have to try that… I’ll update this post when I do… here are some easy links to the things I’ve mentioned! (affiliates)
Raspberries are kind of pricy most of the time but I think frozen raspberries work better for this than fresh, if you can believe it! I have been enjoying at least one of these delicious concoctions every day and it’s the best. Pair it with a copycat Swig sugar cookie (Mandi figured that out!) and you’re really in business!
