Homemade Fresh Strawberry Soda Recipe

Hello!! I hope you're having a fabulous week so far!! I spent all morning volunteering on the house today! We got the inside walls built today, and next is windows and doors! So exciting!!

Today's recipe is for Fresh Strawberry Soda! I have to admit, I am a huge soda lover. I cut myself down to enjoying one, once a week, since it's not so good for you. This version is a little bit healthier, and so refreshing! You can make it with any fruit you wish! It's super simple and you can keep the syrup refrigerated for a few days! Enjoy!!

What you need:
1 1/2 cups fresh strawberries, chopped
9 tablespoons lemon juice
1 cup sugar
unflavored sparkling water

In a medium saucepan, on medium heat, combine strawberries, lemon juice and sugar. Bring to a simmer, stirring frequently, cook for 10-15 minutes until berries start to soften and fall apart. Remove from heat and cool. Pour into a mason jar or other glass container and refrigerate for a few hours before using. 

You can strain the juice from the berry pulp, or use as is. I love the fruit chunks in mine!

Fill a glass with ice. Add 3-5 tablespoons strawberry syrup, depending on how sweet you like it. I would start with 3 and add from there. Fill the glass with sparkling water and enjoy!
