HEALTHY HINTS & TIME SAVING TIPS:  it is best to drink your “natural” soda with the added crushed berries and/or fresh-squeezed citrus juice and let the natural sugar of the fruits be enough. But if you absolutely must sweeten then add a few drops of 100% natural Stevia liquid from the health food store.  It comes in lots of flavors.  Stevia from the grocery store is processed with harmful chemicals and contains added fillers.

Blueberries and strawberries are on the Dirty Dozen list of the most heavily sprayed produce, please buy organic.
