Raspberry Soda – Our Version of Swig’s Raspberry Dream

All you soda-drinkers out there are going to LOVE this recipe for Swig’s Raspberry Dream! But first, some introductions – Hi everyone! My name is Kelsey – I am Echo’s daughter. I mostly help out behind the scenes of Favorite Family Recipes, but today I am here to share a recipe that I LOVE! I recently graduated from BYU and have moved to Boise, Idaho to do an internship. I have really enjoyed being in Boise (lots of great local food here!), but one of the things I miss most from Utah is Swig! Swig is a super popular drink stop in Utah and it was my best pal during late-night study sessions at BYU. The Raspberry Dream is my favorite thing on the menu. I decided that I couldn’t wait until my next trip to Utah to have it again so I made my own version.

Tips for Making Raspberry Soda

I have to say – I think I like this version of Raspberry Soda better than the original. I added a little more coconut flavor and it is delicious! You can mix up this recipe even more by using strawberries, blueberries, or blackberries instead of raspberries. You can also vary the taste by experimenting with different amounts of fruit and cream, and using different sodas. Some other mixes I want to try are Mountain Dew with mango and Diet Coke with pomegranate. The possibilities are endless!

Swig Cookies

If you give a mouse a cookie, he’ll want a cookie to go with it. However, if you give me a Raspberry Dream, I’ll want a Swig Sugar Cookie to go with it! I couldn’t possibly give you guys Swig copycat recipes unless I was ready to serve up the Swig Sugar Cookie Recipe too! We also dreamed up three other variations of the original sugar cookie that are just as soft and delicious as the original! Make sure to give them all a try!

  • Blendtec Blender



  • In a blender, puree the raspberries and sugar together until smooth
  • In a small mixing bowl, combine the half and half and the coconut extract
  • Fill a 16 oz cup halfway with ice. Then fill ¾ of the way with Dr. Pepper. Add 2 tablespoons of the raspberry mixture, and then 2 tablespoons of the cream mixture.
  • Fill the rest of the cup with Dr. Pepper, stir well with a straw or spoon and enjoy!


The raspberry mixture will settle at the bottom so you may have to stir the drink occasionally.
I like to use Dr. Pepper Ten, but diet, caffeine-free, and regular taste good too!

    This will be the perfect sweet treat for my kids for tomorrow big game. I’ll even serve them up at our counter so they can pretend they’re at a real malt shoppe. So fun!

  2. 5 stars
    Hadn’t heard of Swig’s before, sounds like a place to be on the lookout for if I’m traveling out that way. Tasty recipe, I bet our son would like this…likes to get fancy drinks when we go out to dinner!

  3. The recipe won’t pull up. Did you take it off? This is my favorite drink and I would LOVE to make it at home. We don’t have a swig within 2-3 hours.

  4. Raspberry dream w/ coke is my FAVORITE! I am going to have an italian soda/swig bar for my Birthday party in a couple weeks, this will be very useful! I also saw your post about all the different cookies. I can’t wait to try them all!

    1. I think most of Swig’s Dr. Pepper recipes can be switched out for Diet Coke, which you can find caffeine free 🙂

      1. You can also find caffeine free Dr. Pepper in some stores and it tastes just the same as the caffeinated version.
