To encourage healthy habits, I try to steer my children toward drinking water at home. But, plain water can seem boring, and it’s easy to reach for less healthy options.
With the SodaStream Power Automatic Sparkling Water Maker we can enjoy a yummy drink without choosing sugary soda. Sparkling water is a fun way to treat both my kids and myself while still making great healthy choices!
For a really fun sparkling water treat set up a “Create Your Own Sparkling Water Flavor Station” for your kids and their friends. It’s so much fun to mix and test different flavors! Print out a fun sheet for the ultimate experimentation experience!
Set up a Create Your Own Sparkling Water Flavor Station
Choose several SodaStream Sparkling Drink Mixes to make the base of the flavored drinks. My kids chose Waters | Fruits – Berry Mix, Waters | Zeros – Cranberry Raspberry, and Waters |Sparkling Gourmet – Blackcurrant Lime.
*I have to add here that the Zeros Sparkling Drink Mixes contain the natural, plant-based sweetener stevia. I avoid artificial sweeteners for my children, so I was very pleased to find that these mixes are naturally sweetened! (Both the Fruits and Gourmet lines also use natural flavors and sweeteners.)
Use the SodaStream Power to carbonate the water with the touch of a button. Choose one of three fizz levels to create the perfect amount of fizz. After carbonation, add the Sparkling Drink Mix Flavor to the bottle and label each flavor.
Print out a Create Your Own Sparkling Water Flavor printable for each child.
Set out labeled jars of several fruit juices. I used pineapple, orange and white grape juices for our station.
Prepare a tray of various fruits for the children to mix into their creations.
Hand the kids a Create Your Own Flavor worksheet, plus a pen, glass, and fun straw. Then sit back to watch the mixology and the fun!After making, mixing, naming, and tasting many combinations, my kids unanimously loved Very Berry Grape Sparkling Water most of all. Here is the recipe they created.
Very Berry Grape Sparkling Water
Fill a glass halfway with Berry Mix Sparkling Water.
Pour white grape juice in the glass, leaving several inches of space at the top.
Add several sliced strawberries, blueberries, blackberries, raspberries, and sliced red grapes to the glass.
Serve with a fun straw and enjoy!
