As spring and summer are fast approaching and the weather has been getting warmer, I have been excited to spend more time outdoors. Of course I want to look my best and so I have been looking for ways to cut carbs. In our house we love soda or pop as we call it here in Michigan.
When I found Soda Stream I had to try it. Soda stream is an awesome little machine that you can make soda on from home without all the sugar of store bought soda (which means less calories and carbs). It requires no batteries or electricity to work.
Not only can you make Diet and Regular soda you can make sparkling water.
Soda stream was kind enough to send me Genesis soda maker kit.
We have had so much fun this past week trying different flavors. It's really easy to make. You add water to the line labeled on the bottle. Then you attach the bottle to the machine, press the button till you hear 3 loud beeps, take the bottle off the machine and add the flavor of your choice SLOWLY (or you'll have an eruption). Cap and shake the bottle lightly and then serve.
It tastes just like store bought soda. There are lots of flavors to chose from. We liked the Pete's choice(Dr Pepper) and orange the best so far.
