Dirty Diet Coke

So across the internet and social media I kept seeing comments about “Dirty Diet Coke”.  Honestly, I assumed it included liquor.  But then I saw Moms talking about drinking it early enough in the day I realized they either had issues or I needed to do some further investigating into what a “Dirty Diet Coke” really was….

Turns out?  No liquor.  To which some of you say YAY and some feel the air being let outta your balloon.

Here are the ingredients….

If you see the Coconut Syrup and think — NO WAY….  Hold on.  I would not drink a Piña colada for anything.  Dirty Diet Coke?  I really like!  The coconut isn’t too overpowering and it doesn’t taste anything like a Piña colada flavor at all.

The last step is adding the cream….  when you do, the ice cold Diet Coke causes the cream to form into little crystals.  When you stir it with the straw it creates a drink with almost a root beer float consistency….  without all the calories.

    This looks so interesting. I love lime and coconut together, so I’m assuming I’d like it. I found your blog from the Buns In My Oven link up. You have some great posts on here. :) Take care!
