Make your own carbonated drinks via The Artisan Soda Workshop

‘Greening’ our family of 5 has gone a lot further than bringing our reusable bags to the grocery store. It also has changed what we buy while we’re there – and sometimes that means giving up what we’ve been raised on for more eco-friendly and even healthier options.  Like buying pop, for example. That’s why I want to take a minute to tell you how The Artisan Soda Workshop by Andrea Lynn has changed what we drink!

If I told you that you and your family could enjoy drinking all-natural versions of your favorite pops, would that intrigue you? And better yet, what if you could make them in your own kitchen, alone or with a friend at a fraction of the cost? Thanks to The Artisan Soda Workshop, now you can :)

With 70 delicious recipes (each with simple to follow step-by-step instructions) and dozens of eye-catching photos, the hubster and I are having a great time mixing up different drinks! In a nutshell, you make a syrup first using REAL ingredients (say good-bye to artificial flavoring & colours!) and then stir it into seltzer water, creating your own soda pop. It’s fast, fun and healthier because you benefit from all the nutrients coming from your fresh ingredients!

The best part about controlling every single ingredient, aside from health reasons is that we are able to customize our drinks to taste! So if I want my drink a little less sweet I scale back on the sweetener than I put in it (honey, agave syrup, sugar).

With natural and tasty ingredients like fresh lemon juice, vanilla beans, cinnamon sticks, what’s not to love?! I, for one, am really looking forward to the warmer weather approaching so we can take our drinks outside in the evenings for BBQs and get-togethers with our neighbours! Cheers to that! :)

So tell me, are you a big ‘pop’ drinker?

    1. I was craving pop so much this past pregnancy, so I was happy that I could make my own healthier versions at home. Enjoy the rest of your pregnancy, you’re almost done! :)

  1. we actually cut all sodas out of our diet about 2 months ago. I did so a year ago other than a rare occasion a few times last year, but I even got husband on board 2 months ago. However, it would be great to be able to make some tasty drinks at home that won’t eat through rust or dissentigrate a steak in two days 😉

  2. Oh my goodness! This would be awesome to try! I love soda. And have been making my own with a Sodastream machine. But I’d love to even cut out their processed “flavorings” and use real ingredients. So cool!

  3. I LOVE the carbonation in soda but I don’t drink it anymore because it is so bad for you. This book just may be the perfect solution especially for the hot summer coming up!
