The Raspberry Dream drink from Swig is the best thing that you'll ever taste! Start making your own at home using this simple recipe and save lots of money on your favorite treat!
It's no secret that I love Swig (a cute soda and cookie shop in Utah and Arizona that I hope will dominate the world someday with their deliciousness). My weakness is their (diet) Raspberry Dream, my favorite drink of all time. Picture this: diet Doctor Pepper…coconut cream…raspberry puree…oh. my. heavens. Basically dessert in a cup.
*wipes drool from mouth*
Good news! I know Swig isn't everywhere, so I came up with my own version of the Diet Raspberry Dream so those of you who are out of town can use the recipe to tide you over until you get in contact with the REAL DEAL someday (soon, hopefully)!

It took a little trial and error, but I've made it enough now that it's perfect! Enough with the chatter, let's get on to the drink!
A Raspberry Dream is pretty straightforward! You can play around with the amounts of the ingredients until you find your preferred taste.
- Dr. Pepper – Use a can or pour it from a 2 liter bottle!
- Coconut Cream – You can usually find this in the drink aisle of your local grocery store.
- Raspberry Syrup – I prefer Toriani, but your grocery store should have a variety of brands for you to choose from.
- Crushed Raspberries – I prefer to use frozen raspberries, but you can also use freeze dried!
COPYCAT SWIG RASPBERRY DREAM RECIPE
Ready to see your new favorite drink to make at home that tastes like Heaven??
Copycat Swig Raspberry Dream Recipe
- 12 oz Dr. Pepper (or Diet Dr. Pepper)
- 2-3 Tbsp Coconut Cream
- 1-2 Tbsp Raspberry Syrup
- 3-4 Tbsp Crushed Frozen Raspberries
- Fill your cup with desired amount of ice.
- Add Dr. Pepper, coconut cream and raspberry syrup. Stir until well incorporated.
- Add raspberries and stir. Enjoy!
I found these cute straws in the Walmart party section for cheap! They made for a cute addition, and a great way to stir it up while you're sipping!
Using frozen raspberries is key, and when they break up it makes the perfect tidbit to suck through a straw.
Ahhh, the finished product! Look how the sun is shining through the window, it doesn't get more heavenly than that 😉
Well folks, that's how I do it!
Again, there is just nothing like the real deal from Swig, but the homemade version is pretty darn good if I do say so myself. And so much cheaper! The cookies though?? I still have yet to find a recipe that even comes close.
So, enjoy this recipe if you aren't lucky enough to have a Swig in your city… though I would seriously consider moving if I were you…

I live in Ogden and work in South Jordan. I have never heard of Swig. I am seriously feeling left out!!!
This is an amazing, amazing recipe!!!??? try the peach syrup too, is Devine?
Mintarrows mom, abountifulkitchen has swig cookie recipes on her blog.
There are a lot of grocery stores that sell Coffeemate Coconut Creme creamer. This is what Swig uses as their coconut cream. Also, the raspberry puree from Swig is a Torani Fruit Puree – I haven’t been able to find it locally, but you can find it on Amazon. Then you can have a 100% Raspberry Dream the way Swig makes it.
Do you know what do they use for the vanilla cream ?
I’m going to have to try this coconut cream! I love all things coconut! I use the peach Torani syrup to make my own Italian sodas sometimes and they are soooo good. It’s a fun “girls night” drink.
We don’t have swig here in Canada but you rave about it so much I’m going to have to try this copy cat to see what all the fussy is about 😉
