    I haven’t had soda for 16 months or so & I do something very similar when I crave. Little carbonation. I have used a splash of cherry juice & add lime.

    Sometimes I use my orange flavored liquid stevia for a quick orange soda :)

    This is a great idea! So far my son has not had pop either. But this would also just add a little variety for him.

    My daughter just turned 8. Be prepared for him to be a little afraid of the bubbles. My girls were like, “this tickles my nose”, LOL :) Happy Birthday to your son (Easter Birthday)!

    Halle! Ok, this is over the top amazing!!! Love it! We do not drink soda and sometimes it is hard for our boys to always be drinking “water” when every other kid is drinking sugary juices, soda,etc.  They will be SO excited to hear “we can make soda.”  I can see us making this on a hot summer day! Thanks so much! (the link is working… thx for your patience!) Can’t wait for you to share it with us at Kids in the Kitchen.  Such a blessing you are!!! :)

    They are so precious!! We do this alot with limes and lemons in the summer – but use stevia instead…
    or you could culture it with kefir grains…
    my hubs makes the most delish grape “soda” with water KEfir grains – and it’s alive…

       @16ballsinairlib you know I am doing something similar with liquid whey and homemade lemon aid creating a natural fizzy and bubbly drink.

    This sounds like a great idea. I am going to try it with my husband. I have been trying to get him to switch to water from pop or the flavored store water for quite some time.  Thanks Halle.

    How much fun is that!  My kids will totally love this.  Healthy to boot.  Seltzer water is a staple in our refrigerator.  Making your own healty soda will be a big hit in our house.  Thanks so much for sharing this fun recipe!
