Refreshing Summer Drink Recipe Round Up!

Wild Flowers I've Snapped This Season
With the warmer weather now here to stay, I find myself spending endless hours outdoors daydreaming, hiking, enjoying the colourful wildflowers, and local wildlife.  It is now more than ever, that I appreciate the simple and beautiful things that life has to offer, and want to drink it in all around me.  There are just some things in life that money cannot buy.  

These glorious days, we eat our meals outdoors: by the lake, on a picnic table by the woods, in the backyard, or on a park bench beside the playground where the kids frolic with friends.  Every beautiful day has become a reason to celebrate outdoors--and to appreciate life to its fullest.

We're always having company over, so the SodaStream Drink Maker is portable enough to set up in the backyard or bring along to our picnics.  It has been widely received by our friends and family, who are delighted to create their own refreshing carbonated beverages.

Take a look at the drinks below, created by Canadian bloggers.  Many of these drinks can be recreated with the SodaStream drink system, and by using tasty ingredients like watermelon, lemons, strawberries, tea, coffee, cream soda, and even birthday cake!

SodaStream Drink Maker:
Portable For On-the-Go Summer Refreshments!
My own summer mix is quite simple: SodaStream carbonated water fused with lemons and lime to quench my thirst!  It always goes great on its own, with a fresh summer salad bursting with mandarins, or a light pita wrap stuffed with veggies and grilled chicken strips! 

With SodaStream, it's easy to customize what goes into every beverage: less or more carbonation--or more or less sweetness. And according to SodaStream, their flavours contain less calories, sugar and carbs than traditional sparkling drinks. 

FUN FACT: Did you know that one SodaStream bottle can replace 2000 bottles and cans?  With almost one billion regular bottles manufactured daily, and 800 million of these ending up in landfills, SodaStream is an environmentally sound choice.

  7. The flowers alone caught my eye! I haven't had ever had a soda stream here. They look fun and I sampled one of their treats at a blogging conference. This is a pin worthy post for sure Jenna. I never think to make fancy drinks _ I am always too busy. But this summer I will be doing more entertaining so these will come in handy!
