Fun With My Soda Machine

Still to date, since the day I’ve won my Soda Stream I have been making home made sodas, and if by chance I run out of a certain mix, I improvise! I recently discovered that Soda Stream has a few neat recipes to try at home mix and matching soda mixes I LOVE the guilt free root beer! Below are the listed recipes 😀 buuut I also play around with juices and such!for Seth and I to make inventive sodas with not only the soda mixes but fresh fruits too!

Variations – use low-fat frozen yogurt or ice milk in place of ice cream. Try substituting SodaStream Cranberry-Raspberry (or Diet Cran-Ras) in place of seltzer for a triple-berry treat!

MY Orange Juice Soda
Now for my orange juice soda lol it’s the easiest recipe ever and Seth loves it! Sunday’s when we go to the flea market I love to buy these HUGE bags of oranges for usually around $3 a bag, I make fresh orange juice in the mornings, cut them up for Seth, snack on them and make soda with them!

Pretty much, take a few oranges slice, juice em, strain out the pulp (I like pulp but Seth does not), pour it in the Soda bottles then add some water, pump it up in the Soda Stream machine and bam HEALTHY soda with NO added sugars! The only thing that would make this easier is if I had a juicer… working on that.

Watch it be made quick clip.
