Guilt Free Homemade Diet Soda

I have found the perfect diet soda! And it is homemade diet soda.

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. 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)

Method

  1. Mix lemon juice and stevia.
  2. Add seltzer.
  3. Drink!

I know that (normal) diet soda is “bad for you”, but I do indulge in it occasionally. 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.) 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 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.
