Sugar Free Soft Drink Alternatives
Fizzy drink, soft drink, soda pop. Whatever you call it, the fun fizzy bubbles make it the perfect party drink. But for Mums who try and restrict excessive added sugar, it’s hard to balance find balance with special treats at a celebration. We’ve taste tested some no-added sugar and sugar free soft drink alternatives that still make for a delicious sparkling treat!
While Wood Lane‘s lightly sparkling relaxation botanical wasn’t developed with little ones in mind, we love it on the party table. With no added sugar, a lovely pink colour from blueberries, and the citrus-y flavour of finger limes (lemon and apple too) this fizzy drink is the perfect alternative to pink lemonade. After a thorough taste test in the Sweet Magazine studio we know the fairies at the bottom of the garden are sipping this delicious drink after a hard day’s work sprinkling fairy dust.
Mum, this is the perfect treat for you too, Wood Lane’s Blueberry and Native Finger Lime beverage is the ultimate relaxing drink after the kids are safe in bed.
Naked Life Sparkling
Naked Life Sparkling came to life due to a fructose intolerance and now has four flavours that provide a fun and refreshing twist on old soft drink favourites. Opt for ginger and pomegranate, lemon squash and citrus, natural cola, or our favourite; lemonade with cucumber. These frizzy beverages are super low calorie and sweetened naturally with no added sugar.
If you’re planning a party for adults avoiding excess sugar, try replacing your usual mixers with Naked Life. We’re waiting till Friday to try it out, but suspect with it’s refreshing and hydrating cucumber, the Sparkling Lemonade with Cucumber will go very nicely with a spot of gin! Drink responsibly.
