With just a SodaStream, cold water, and a bit of LorAnn Oils flavoring, I’ve recreated one of the most popular low-calorie beverages available. La Croix are flavored sparkling waters that are excellent refreshers when a glass of water just won’t do. Not only are flavored sparkling waters refreshing, but they are a great substitute for sugary sodas
when you’re trying to cut out those extra calories. By just adding some bubbles and a little flavor to your water you can make your own version of La Croix at home!
If you’re feeling more adventurous you can try combining various LorAnn Oils flavors to create your own unique beverage blends. (Think Mango-Pineapple or Raspberry-Peach).
It only takes three easy steps to turn your tap water into a delightfully refreshing beverage!
- Fill a SodaStream bottle with cold water and screw onto the device
- Hold down the SodaStream button for 15 seconds, then remove
- Add ¼ to ½ teaspoon of LorAnn Oils Super-Strength Flavoring or Bakery Emulsion to bottle, stir together, and enjoy!
We recommend starting with the smaller amount of flavor and adding more to taste. If using LorAnn Bakery Emulsions, you may need to add more as these flavors are less concentrated.
There’s a long list of La Croix flavors to choose from, and we’ve put LorAnn’s flavors to the test to discover which work best when making flavored sparkling water at home. After some experimenting, we found that the water-soluble flavors were most successful. While the flavors that were not water-soluble tasted great, the oils tended to rise to the top of the drink. If you decide to stick with water-soluble flavors, there are plenty of delicious options to choose from.
To help get you started creating your own flavored sparkling water drinks, here are some suggested flavors to incorporate.
