Lemon Ginger Soda :Sugar Free:

Being sugar free can be kind of boring at times when it comes to summer drinks. I wish I could say that I don’t like soda or crave it, but that would be lying. I enjoy a good cherry coke.

I have been trying to be VERY good and remain sugar free but I am getting tired of drinking just water when I want something refreshing.

We have a (affiliate link) Soda Stream, which is great for making soda at home. Bubbly water makes drinks fun.

I’ve started playing with combinations of things that would make a soda flavor and that is how I came up with the lemon ginger soda. It lemon gives it a ‘sprite’ feeling while the ginger gives it a kick.

I use (affiliate link) Just like Sugar made from chicory root but you could easily you stevia or even honey for that matter if you aren’t avoiding sugar.

And, you totally need a (affiliate link) stainless steel straw. For real. I never thought I’d love a straw as much as a do. But, when it is used in an ice drink, it just makes every sip so nice and cold. I love it. (And they come with a little brush that makes them easy to clean.)

To juice the ginger, I use a garlic press but you can use what ever tool you have handy. (I don’t even peel it!)

    Hi Jessica,
    I hopped by from Natural Family Friday to learn more about your Lemon Ginger Soda recipe and I am glad I did. Lemon and ginger are two of my favorite ingredients and I drink lemon water daily. My husband is a soda drinker who is trying to reform so this sugar free natural soda is perfect for him. All the best, Deborah

    Hi Jessica!

    Would this Lemon Ginger Soda be considered an “all-day sipper” or is it a one-time drink?

    Thank you!
