A closer look at what’s inside:
This drink is made with a mix of mango, orange, and peach. However, you could also get creative and use berries, melon, or other juicy fruits. Use fresh, frozen, or even canned fruit — it won’t make a difference! People often think fresh fruit is nutritionally best, but fruit that is frozen or canned is often picked at peak ripeness and frozen or canned within several hours or days. Produce bought at grocery stores is often picked before it reaches peak ripeness and doesn’t reach your hands for many days or weeks.
I used agave nectar instead of refined sugar in this recipe as it is low glycemic and less likely to spike blood sugar levels.
Adding water to the fruit and agave nectar gives a base for the syrup. As it reduces down it absorbs the agave and fruit becoming a thick syrupy texture.
Club soda is essentially unflavored carbonated water. Unlike seltzer water which has no flavor, it does contain some mineral-like ingredients to enhance the flavor like potassium bicarbonate or potassium sulfate.
To go with the tropical fruit flavors I used coconut milk in this recipe, but you could use any dairy-free milk. Opt for something thick and creamy!

Mango Orange Peach Cream Soda
- 3/4 cup fresh, frozen, or canned fruit mango, peach, and orange
- 1/2 cup water
- 3 tablespoons agave nectar
- 1 cup club soda
- 1 cup dairy-free milk I used coconut milk
- Make a simple syrup by combining fruit, water, and agave in a saucepan over medium-high heat. Bring to a low boil, stirring frequently until reduced into a light syrup (about 10 minutes).
- Strain out any fruit from the mixture and move to the fridge to cool. This should make roughly ¾ cup syrup. Set aside the strained out fruit and save to enjoy on yogurt, toast, or oatmeal.
- Fill your glasses with ice.
- Pour a small amount of the simple syrup into each glass — about 1/4 cup each*.
- Add club soda to the glasses — about 1/2 cup each*.
- Finish each glass with dairy-free milk — about 1/2 cup each*. Taste and add more syrup, soda, or milk if needed.*Adjust according to glass size.
