All Natural Sugar Free Fruit Soda
Soda is refreshing, fun, and fizzy…too bad it’s also one of the most unhealthy foods on the planet. But guess what? You can make an all natural sugar free fruit soda yourself in no time withoutany of the artificial flavors, colors, high fructose corn syrup, or chemicals — all you need is fresh fruit, and carbonated water!
Servings: 4 servings
- 1 pound fresh ripe strawberries
- carbonated water
Wash and trim the strawberries. Place them in a food processor and pulse until they are rough chopped, then scrape down the sides of the machine. Puree until completely smooth. Let the machine run for a minute or longer to insure a nice smooth puree.
Push the mixture through a mesh strainer, using the back of a large spoon to make sure as much of it gets through as possible. Most all of it should go through, leaving just the small seeds behind. You should have approximately a cup and a half of puree.
To make soda, use 2 tablespoons of the puree for each 8 ounces of carbonated water. Mix and then serve immediately. You can adjust the amount of puree for a lighter or stronger flavor.
The fruit puree will keep in a sealed jar in the refrigerator for a week.
If you like you can add a squeeze of fresh lemon juice to perk up the flavor of any fruit soda, and conversely, if you find your soda is too tart, add a touch of honey.
