This is a totally random recipe. You see for years now I told my daughter that I was going to make her Butterbeer and for years I planned to do it… then she went all vegan on me and I became a bit lost on how to do it.

Finally it came to me at the grocery store. I knew I could do it.

Harry Potter Butter Beer


This recipe takes minutes to put together and really tastes great and refreshing. If I was to describe it I would say that it is a sweet coconut cream soda with butter undertones. Sounds like an interesting combo of flavors right? Surprisingly, they really work well together!


  • Vegan Cream Soda 
  • 1 can of coconut cream or heavy whipping cream if non vegan
  • Artificial butter flavor
  • 2 tablespoons of Maple syrup {the real stuff} or agave, it works too!


  1. Chill a can of coconut cream in the refrigerator overnight.
  2. Open up the can of coconut cream and drain the liquid.
  3. Using a stand mixer, beat the coconut cream until soft peaks form. {or whipped cream if using that}
  4. Add 2 tablespoons of Maple syrup or 1 tablespoon of agave into the coconut cream.
  5. Add 5 drops of the butter flavoring into the coconut cream and continue beating until stiff peaks form.
  6. Chill a beer mug.
  7. Put 1 drop of butter flavoring into a beer mug.
  8. Pour a can of cream soda into the mug.
  9. Top with the whipped coconut cream.
  10. Enjoy!

  • Thank you. I’ve been waiting for a vegan butterbeer recipe! All the other ones aren’t vegan.

    • Totally agree. I’ve seen other ones our there but nothing that was vegan for my daughters so I created one 🙂 Hope you enjoy it!
