My husband got a Soda Stream for Father’s Day this weekend. We aren’t ‘cola’ drinkers at all, but love our soda water. This kitchen gadget has been on his wish list for a while. Now it is in our kitchen. And since strawberries are everywhere, I put some in the soda we made. It is a not-too-sweet, refreshing drink. It can even be a little festive for Independence Day!
Simple combination…strawberry puree and soda water.
I made homemade strawberry puree, because I am crazy like that. Since I made it, I can control what goes in it (told ya I was crazy). I used agave to sweeten it a bit. Honey or sugar can also be used. You can be crazy too. Strawberry puree is as easy as 1-2-3 (-4). And since you control what you put into it, you also can control how much sweetness you would like. Ready? Go…
I put 1/4 cup into each muffin cup. Once frozen, I dipped the tin in warm water to loosen each serving, and used a knife to gently remove them. I put the servings on parchment and stuck them in the freezer one last time so that they don’t stick together in a bag.
Now that you have your individual servings, put them in margaritas, lemonade, soda, whatever you would like!
