Healthy Cherry Creaming Soda Recipe
- 12 frozen cherries
- 2 tsp sugar
- 1/2 cup water, cold
- 2 tsp lime juice
- 1 1/3 cups no-added-sugar raspberry flavoured sparkling water, cold
- Add cherries, sugar, water and lime juice to a blender or jug that can be used with a stick blender.
- Blitz until smooth. Add a little more water if needed to get the mixer going.
- Just before serving, divide into glasses and top up with 2/3 cup of sparkling water per glass (watch out for the volcano like fizz!)
Comment: Frozen, pitted cherries are available at many supermarkets and are usually much cheaper than fresh. To freeze fresh cherries, cut in half and take out the seed. Freeze in a ziplock bag for at least 2 hours.
Having a party? Serve vegie sticks and water crackers with salsa rather than high-fat chips and dips.
