Healthy Fruit Soda

This healthy fruit soda is a homemade treat that’s not very hard to make…patience is the only skill that is required, as you’ll have to wait a little while to enjoy it.


There is nothing like a cold and bubbly drink to quench your thirst, but sodas are generally terrible for you. High in corn syrup or sugar (or artificial sweeteners, which aren’t good for you, either) and chemicals that make a mess of your body’s calcium balance, I try to consume them rarely, if ever.

This healthy fruit soda, on the other hand, is made using the lacto-fermentation method.  Lactofermented foods and drinks are excellent for your health (they are particularly good for the digestive system, the immune system, and they help with natural weight loss, too).

I got this healthy soda recipe from the wonderful folks at I try to keep the ginger soda culture on hand at all times, because this is one of my kids’ favorite healthy drinks.

I used organic frozen blueberries, strawberries, and mango in my most recent batch of homemade soda and I let this batch ferment for about a week.  In warmer weather, it takes less time to get bubbly.

If you’re interested in healthy drink recipes, I highly suggest you try this one (and again, thanks to for the inspiration!)
