This, like juicing, is another afternoon pick me up I have come to thoroughly enjoy…not so much for the nutrient concentration but it makes for a great way to limit mid day munching. It also is a great Coke, Pepsi, Sprite etc. substitute. It’s been years since I’ve had a real Coke but for a while there I was indulging fairly frequently in diet sodas…which are lower in calories than a regular soda but proven to be much worse for you. So I’ve tried to come up with something middle of the road: these “sodas”I like to make will have some calories (although it is much less than a regular soda and you can make it as low-cal as you want) but they are all natural. It’s not so much a recipe as it is putting together your own puzzle from these various parts, you can choose however many or few you wish:
carbonated water (a must)
olivello juice (if you really need an antioxidant punch)
any other juice you can think of…especially if you can make it yourself with your juicer 🙂
a squeeze of lime (or lemon, but I prefer lime)
stevia (if you really have a sweet tooth)
Hope this can satisfy your soda cravings…enjoy!
