I have found the perfect diet soda! And it is homemade!
I just discovered this combo in the last week or so and I am decidedly pleased with it.
I even busted out my DSLR to photograph this lovely healthy diet soda. My cell phone pics are not that classy. Without further ado, here is my stevia-sweetened diet soda recipe…
Homemade Diet Soda Recipe
Ingredients (serves 1)
- 1 can of seltzer water
- 1-2 tablespoons lemon juice
- stevia*, to taste – approximately 1 packet (or equivalent)
- Mix lemon juice and stevia.
- Add seltzer.
I know that (normal) diet soda is “bad for you”, but I do indulge in it (and much enjoy it) occasionally. I am not perfect, and I’m okay with that So I will drink my diet soda if I want. Unfortunately it has been giving me problems recently – within a few minutes after having anything with aspartame/sucralose I get a splitting headache. (Including gum with aspartame! How sad.) So I was very excited to discover this prudent and slightly more healthful alternative to my normal Coke Zero treats. My other option was Zevia (a brand of stevia-sweetened diet soda) but since it’s pricey I don’t stock up on it. Seltzer, on the other hand, is cheap.
Do you drink diet soda? Do you like stevia? Have you tried Zevia or making your own homemade diet soda?
*Note: I’m still using the NuNaturals stevia products and I am so happy with all of them. When I run out I will definitely be ordering more.
