Every once in a while I just want some carbonation!
I am not much of a pop drinker. Not because I don't like it, but simply because it usually is accompanied by loads of sugar or even worse - man-made chemicals like aspartame (which happens to be the single item that the FDA gest the absolute most complaints about).
My husband is a huge Diet Coke connoisseur! I think he would have an I.V. drip if it were socially acceptable. He has been known to have his mug as his carry-on when we travel and he knows the local places that have the best "calibration". It is the one habit that I sincerely wish he would give up.
Anyway, for the most part his Diet Coke habit is not that tempting to me. I don't really like the stuff at all, but every once in a while I am seriously in the mood for a big glass of refreshing carbonation!
Well when that happens, here is what I make. Very simply and ZERO calories.
Juice from 1 lime
1 or 2 packets of stevia
1 glass of soda water
crushed ice (I usually put some cubes into my Vitamix with a little of the water to make it "slushie" and then add it to my drink
Voila, perfect guilt-free refreshment!
