Who else is always hot in the Summer and constantly looking for a refreshment. This can be a little inflatable pool in your garden with ice cold water or the air condition in your car but also a delicious refreshing drink.
I personally enjoy a carbonated drink over any other so we have been using the Soda Stream for a few years now to always have fresh and sparkly water at home.
In both of my pregnancies I had to stay as sugar free as possible because of the gestational diabetes so I have looked for other ways to get some flavor into my drinks cause soft drinks were not allowed. I have found out that Soda Stream offers lots of sugar free syrups so I got a bunch and tried them. To be honest I was very surprised cause what I got tasted pretty good. Started with Berry and Cherry I also got Orange (tastes like Fanta) and Lemon (tastes like Sprite). They also offer a Coke syrup but I am team Diet Coke for life so there is no way I am going to try this.
The handling of the Soda Stream is very easy. You take your bottle and fill it with tap water and then put it into the Soda Stream. There is a button on top and you can press it as often as you like. It gets more and more carbonated with each push. We do around 4 to 6 but we like it sparkly.
I am not drinking much alcohol in the Summer. It is just too hot and I don´t need to add anything that makes me sweat. Also with being pregnant and breastfeeding there was no room for alcohol as well so I tried to pimp my sparkly lemonade with little cocktail umbrellas, slices of citrus fruits, colorful straws and fancy glasses. Gotta tell you it is a total mood booster to hold a fancy drink in my hand.
It also helps to prevent plastic garbage cause you won´t by nearly as much beverages as you have before. Definitely a plus to help keeping the environment cleaner.
Are you a fan of sparkly drinks ? Have you ever heard of Soda Stream?
