This blog is supposed to be all encompassing of every aspects of our life, however, until I get a better camera for portraits, beauty and fashion posts, I’m going to stick to some recipes and more trivial things.
I’ve honestly never had an Italian Soda, but at a girls night the other night, my friend suggested we make them. She even had a Keto version for me (although substituting the syrup for sugar free was the main Keto change)! They are very easy to make and now that I have been on Keto, I am always looking for new things to try, especially on the sweeter side.
To make an Italian Soda you will need: Flavored Syrup (sugar free if it fits your fancy), sparkling water, we used S. Pelligrino, and half and half or heavy whipping cream.
Since starting Keto, flavored syrups have been amazing in my bulletproof coffee. I have also experimented using them elsewhere since it’s hard to find a delicious Keto dessert that doesn’t have the underlying aspartame taste. For my Italian Soda I used, 6 pumps of the Torani – Sugar Free: Black Cherry and went heavy on the heavy whipping cream, and poured the S. Pelligrino to the brim. It was delicious. I want to try this out with the Torani – Sugar Free: Cookie Dough flavoring (currently in the mail). I have no idea if it will be delicious or disgusting, but I’m willing to take that risk.
