Has any one else noticed this phenomenon? Of course, I never
waste spend much time on Pinterest. I am lying. I am on there all every day. Anyway, I have been noticing a ton of pins on Dirty Diet Coke. Diet Coke, coconut syrup and limes to make it dirty, and optional cream! Adding the cream apparently makes it dirty AND muddy. I just had to try this thing. So I ordered my sugar-free coconut syrup from Amazon, stocked up on Diet Coke and limes, and waited for the mail. Friday was the day!
My first time out I just got dirty, like on Funky Polkadot Giraffe. I tried Diet Coke, coconut syrup, and limes. It was really good! The next time out, I tried adding cream, but instead of half and half like on Our Best Bites, I used heavy cream, since I am watching my carbs. It was REALLY good! On the third time out, I left out the lime. NOW we’re talking. I found my perfect combination.
The PERFECT Dirty, Muddy Diet Coke
1 Diet Coke
2-3 T. Sugar-free Coconut Syrup
Ice (I like crushed ice best)
Splash of heavy cream
I take a nice big glass, and fill it with ice. I pour half of my Diet Coke over the ice, add the coconut syrup, then add the rest of the Diet Coke. Stir with a long spoon (or if you are lazy like me, use your
finger straw) and then add your splash of cream. YUMMY!
Over at Thirty Handmade Days, there are even printables so that you can give a Dirty Diet Coke kit to a lucky friend!
Last night I noticed my absolute favorite food blogger, Christy Jordan, just posted about Muddy Diet Dr. Pepper! The possibilities are endless!
