I love soda, especially around that . . . ahem . . . time of the month.  Typically, it’s cola that I down for that week or two out of the month.

RC for 8 oz. has 110 cal. 30 mg – sodium, 27.9 g – sugar

Pepsi for 16 oz. has 200 cal. 40 mg – sodium, 55 g – sugar

Well, that’s no good for me or anyone else, but who cares when it tastes so good.  So naturally, I did the thing that I do best – I created my own.

Since, I haven’t experimented with cola I have two recipes that work well with three simple ingredients – 4 if you count the ice.  Another fast, cheap, simple healthy recipe for you and yours to enjoy.  it’s also a healthy recipe for kids.



1 can seltzer water
1/8 – 1/4 cup agave or maple syrup TT
Juice of 1/2 lemon or lime
(live a little – use the whole one if you want)


1. Squeeze the lemon into your favorite cup or glass.
2. Add agave and stir.
3. What I did was add the ice and then pour the seltzer water over the ice and lemon mixture.
4. Stir with a straw and enjoy.
