Homemade Zero Calorie Vanilla Soda

This recipe could not be more simple! Plus, it's not just easy and quick, it's also totally guilt-free. Stevia is honestly the one sugar-free sweetener that I'm totally convinced is safe. This became clear to me when I saw it growing (in all its cute and innocent glory) outside my friend's house! It's just a sweet green plant that, in liquid form, makes a great sweetener for beverages. Just make sure not to use too much - it's strong stuff! Personally, I've been enjoying one of these every day. They totally fulfill that craving for a bubbly, fun treat - but leave me feeling great afterwards! : )

1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/4 teaspoon liquid stevia (or a wee bit more if you prefer it sweeter)
2 cups cold sparkling water or sparkling mineral water

To make, just place the vanilla and stevia in a large glass. Add the water, stir, and serve!

Serves 1
GF/SF/Green (according to the health guidelines in my books)

  1. You can also buy Stevia flavored with vanilla, lemon, root beer and many others, although not so easy to find I've seen it at our local health food/nutrition store.
