Is it possible to make homemade healthy soda? Most of the gimmicks I see advertised offer the fizzy and pop that most name brands do but no one really talks about how healthy (or unhealthy) it may be. Is this possible?
If you use real fruit juices as the base, then the soda would be healthy. Homemade ginger ale is also healthy for you, if you don't get carried away with your sweeteners or use the fake stuff. Ginger is super good for you, as it has anti-inflammatory properties which help with just about any disease.
There are so many things you can do to make a healthy soda. First off, if you get the Soda Stream, you got the whole carbonated water system down. It'll be much cheaper in the long run than buying the carbonated water itself.
Then, all you gotta do is flavor it with whatever you like. Ginger ale, root beer, are definitely good starts. You can use fresh fruit, fruit juices, or even fruit concentrates.
