Italian Cream soda is a treat I used to make on hot summer days- it’s sweet and creamy yet light somehow. But the truth is, it’s made with sugary flavored syrup, heavy cream and club soda. Here, we remove the bad and replace it with the incredible superfood kefir!
Kefir is an incredible health boosting drink! It’s full of prebiotics and probiotics making it incredible for gut health. But it’s flavor is a bit intense for some people! If you are a lover of all things kefir, or someone trying to get used to its flavor, his twist on Italian Cream soda is for you!
Flavored LaCroix (or similar no sugar carbonated water)
1/4 cup no-fat kefir
1 doonk stevia extract (1/32tsp) or a couple drops liquid stevia
1/2 tsp Extract of choice (I used the new trim healthy mama cherry natural burst!)
Mix the stevia with the kefir first. Otherwise it’s hard to mix! Granulated sweeteners such as super sweet, gentle sweet, truvia and pyure are more difficult to mix with kefir.
Pour the LaCroix over Ice, stir in the extract. Then top with kefir! Enjoy this creamy healthy goodness! Separation of the drink sits too long is normal, it happens with regular Italian Cream soda too. Just stir it up with a straw! Want to start making your own Kefir at home?
