How to Make Orange Cream Soda

There are two steps to making this homemade soda recipe. You’ll first need to make a homemade orange syrup to use in order to give your soda it’s flavor, followed by actually making the soda.

To make the syrup, simply combine ½ cup of orange juice with water, honey, and the zest from a single orange in a small saucepan. Bring to a boil over a medium heat, leaving the mixture to cook for approximately five minutes.

You can then remove it from the heat. Allow the syrup to cool completely before transferring it into a bottle to refrigerate until you’re ready for use.

When you’re ready to actually make your soda, grab a glass and add in two tablespoons of your orange syrup. Mix in an equal amount of coconut milk, top it off with a bit of chilled carbonated water, and enjoy!

Other Uses for Orange Syrup

I’m sure that as soon as you take your first sip of this orange drink, you’ll be in complete agreement that the homemade orange syrup is perhaps the real star of the show in this recipe.

With that in mind, I actually get questions all the time from friends who try this paleo soda if there are any other uses for the syrup. As I’m sure you can guess by now, there are quite a few but here are some of my favorites:

  • Use it as a tasty topping for your pancakes and waffles
  • You can slot it in for any baking recipes that call for syrup to infuse your baked goods with a taste of orange
  • Mix it in with your favorite spirits for some truly tasty cocktail combinations

Top 3 Alternatives for Carbonated Water

You can certainly make this soda recipe using other options besides carbonated water. While you obviously can’t use regular water because you do need your soda to have that fizz. The following options will work just as well as carbonated water:

  • Seltzer
  • Club soda
  • Sparkling mineral water
