Homemade Strawberry Soda

Homemade Strawberry Soda is a refreshing drink that’s healthier than most store bought soda.

I don’t know about you, but our grocery stores are exploding with fresh strawberries right now and we’re loving it! From eating them by the handful, to making syrups, homemade fruit roll-ups, sauces and baking with them we just can’t get enough. We made a large batch of strawberry syrup for the red layer of our red white and blue popsicles last week, and started brainstorming ways to use the leftover syrup.

Pancakes was an obvious one that we totally enjoyed, but then we decided to try adding it to a drink. My kids don’t drink store bought soda. I’m not a fan of the high fructose corn syrup and other chemicals soda is usually full of so it’s just not something I buy. Since they haven’t had it, they don’t miss it šŸ™‚ . But, the bubbles can be fun to drink so I decided to make our own healthier version of Strawberry Soda.
