What is Dirty Soda, and Why Should You Care?

Ah, dirty soda – the trendy beverage that's taking the world by storm. Basically it's a soda with a creamy twist, often featuring flavored syrups or creams.

The exact origin of the dirty soda is unclear. But they began trending in Utah around 2010. That was after the Mormon Church clarified that consuming caffeinated cold drinks (like sodas) was permissible.

Our Creamsicle Dirty Soda puts an easy, dairy-free spin on a classic flavor combo. The use of JOI oat milk creamer and tangerine marmalade, creates a delightfully indulgent and refreshing treat.

Plus, we're using probiotic sodas for an extra boost to the gut.

Why This Recipe is Easy-Peasy "Orange" Squeezy

Simple (and delicious) is the key to this recipe. With just a handful of ingredients and a few easy steps, you'll be sipping on this heavenly treat in no time.

Substitutions to Make It Your Own

Whether you love customizing to suit your needs and wants, or you just don't happen to have a certain ingredient, make this drink!

Don't have tangerine marmalade on hand? No worries! You can substitute it with orange or lemon marmalade. Or leave it out altogether.

And if you're feeling adventurous, why not try swapping out the orange soda for a different flavor? Grapefruit or lemon-lime would be a zesty twist!

We love using probiotic sodas for a better-for-you take on the dirty soda. But of course you can always lean on regular soda or even club soda.

Plus, you can adjust the sweetness and creaminess to your liking, making it the perfect refreshment for your palate.

For an extra burst of refreshing flavor, consider adding a squeeze of fresh lime juice to your Creamsicle Dirty Soda. Lime adds a tangy flavor to sweet orange soda and creamer, creating a well-balanced sip.
