My first ever sleep over was at my friend Kate’s house. She lived with her mum who made us French toast to eat in bed. They also had a SodaStream which I thought was very exotic. You mean you have bubbles on tap? I couldn’t believe that such a marverlous thing existed!
Fast forward a few decades (!!) and I’ve recently been reintroduced to SodaStream. Over the last few weeks, I’ve been using the SodaStream Play to give ordinary tap water some bubbles!
Designed by renowned European product designer, Yves Béhar, the SodaStream Play features a new ‘auto-lift’ slider that makes carbonating drinks quick, simple and super easy. It’s also a great way to skip the salt content that can be found in pre-packaged soda or mineral water. Plus, creating drinks with SodaStream Play helps your household reduce its carbon footprint and the amount of landfill it produces.
If you want to flavour your sparkling water, you can use one of SodaStream’s 50 flavour pods, or add your favourite fruits and herbs. To get you started, I thought I’d share four fruit sparkling water recipes that have been on high rotation at my place.
4 Fruit Sparkling Water Recipes
Orange and Blueberry Infused Sparkling Water // Pineapple, Ginger and Mint Infused Sparkling Water
Ruby Grapefruit and Rosemary Infused Sparkling Water // Kiwi Fruit and Raspberry Infused Sparkling Water
