This Orange Cream Soda GGMS tastes like a real fruity soft drink and nothing like vinegar. Thanks to Trim Healthy Mama I’ve discovered they I can get all the goodness of that wonderful elixir we call apple cider vinegar without the vinegary taste!
These drinks are called Good Girl Moonshine by the authors of the diet and I’ve been drinking this particular spin on that drink by the quart, rapidly I might add, for the last few weeks. I admit that I’m sorry I’ve kept it to myself for that long, but I finally got pictures and here it is!
I used the orange wedges to identify and beautify the picture; the drink is flavored with pure orange extract or pure food grade orange essential oil. Getting a good image of this drink was difficult, because the protein powder in the drink made it cloudy but, wow, is it ever light, bright, and refreshing in real life.

If you need anything from the Trim Healthy Mama Store it would be a help to me if you could use my link and at no extra cost to you. Thanks for helping me keep producing and offering these free recipes. 🙂
Please note that I specify a stevia/sugar alcohol sweetener in this drink but it can easily be sweetened to taste with (1/16 tsp or more) of a very high-quality stevia powder or stevia liquid drops. THM stevia is my absolute favorite but in a pinch I also use the Kal organic and those are the only two powdered stevias that I ever use.
Orange Cream Soda GGMS
Yield 1 Qt.
This Orange Cream Soda GGMS tastes like a real fruity soft drink and nothing like vinegar. It remains one of the most popular recipes on my blog for a good reason, so try it for yourself.
2 tablespoons apple cider vinegar (I use Bragg's)
1 tablespoon Pristine Whey Protein or other on plan plain protein powder as a drink
(The tablespoon of whey makes this an FP but reducing this amount to 1 teaspoon whey powder will make this an all day sipper if you prefer not to drink it as a drink with your meal or snack)
1/2 teaspoon powdered ginger (I use high quality, organic powdered)
1/2 teaspoon pure orange extract (I use Kroger's brand and it is great)
- or 2 drops of food grade orange essential oil
Just keep stirring with each addition....
2 teaspoons Super Sweet Blend (I love this product in all ggms's, but it is especially good in this one)
1 donk of THM Stevia and 1 teaspoon Truvia or Pyure
1 tsp Gentle Sweet and 2 donks stevia
2 cups of clean filtered water
1 cup of ice
1 cup of your favorite, very fizzy water, I use mineral water
Add these ingredients in this order to a quart jar and you won't have any problems getting them mixed together. Stirring thoroughly with a straw mixes it in well.
Stir well and fill the quart up to the 3/4 mark with ice cubes and stir again. Now carefully top this drink off up to the top with a good fizzy mineral or seltzer water. Stir lightly and enjoy!
