Kids Party Punch using SodaStream

Kids Party Punch Using SodaStream

I first received my SodaStream Source Elements at the end of last year, you can read about it here. Since we have had it I haven’t had to buy soda water (I sometimes like to have bubbles instead of plain water) or soft drinks. It has proven to be a really handy addition to my kitchen and serves us well, especially when we decide to go for a picnic and want to take something fizzy to drink, I love that I can just go to my SodaStream and viola I have a fizzy drink to pack into the cooler.

What’s new this year from SodaStream?

SodaStream have just made things a lot easier in terms of storage and measuring. They have released these very cool new SodaStream Caps. They are a single-dose capsule-based flavour system that you simply place on top of your carbonated SodaStream bottle and with a gentle press they click into place, releasing the perfect amount of pre-measured flavouring into the fizzed water. They take the guess work out of measuring and saves space in my cupboard, 4 flavours in one compact box, perfect!

SodaStream Lime Cap with Bottle

The next thing that SodaStream have done, that I think is very cool is bring in a ‘Naturals’ range in their Caps. They are naturally sweetened and only have natural colours and flavours and are free from preservatives and artificial sweeteners – a perfect combination for a family.

If you prefer the traditional SodaStream flavours don’t worry they have added them to the Caps range in their Classic Caps pack. You will find Cola, Orange, Lemon-Lime and my favourite Pink Grapefruit.

SodaStream Caps

Two weeks ago I served a Party Punch for the kids at my son’s 5th Birthday Party along with a dispenser of water and decided to use a mix of the SodaStream Naturals Caps. I felt that this was the most sensible option as kids fruit drinks are full of sugar and colours that just make the littlies go a bit out of control at parties. I also know what it feels like to turn up to a party and see that the only drink option are fruit drinks or standard soft drink.

 

I felt much better about making a concious effort to provide a drink option that was still fun but not packed full of the sugar and colourings growing bodies don’t need.

Here’s my recipe for Kids Party Punch

The dispenser I served this in as shown here was 12 litres. I made 8 and added lovely frozen fruit as my ice. I didn’t use normal water ice as I didn’t want it to dilute the flavour and the fruits added a lovely natural colour and complimented the flavours.

WHAT YOU WILL NEED:

SodaStream Drinks Maker
1 SodaStream Cap – Natural Fresh Lemon – clicked into 1 litre of fizzed water
1 SodaStream Cap – Natural Kiwi Pear – clicked into 1 litre of fizzed water
2 Whole Lemons, frozen
4 Limes, halved and frozen
4 Kiwi Fruit, peeled, halved and frozen
1 Can Pears, frozen
Use a ratio of 1:1 so I made 4 Natural Fresh Lemon and 4 Natural Kiwi Pear.

SodaStream Caps

LETS PUT IT ALL TOGETHER

1. Fill your reusable SodaStream carbonating bottle with tap water and insert into your SodaStream drinks maker to carbonate

SodaStream Caps
2. Place a SodaStream Cap on the carbonated water and click into place, dispensing the flavour

3. Pour the flavoured soda into the large dispenser and repeat until full
4. Add the frozen lemons, limes, pears and kiwi fruits.
Enjoy!

The Natural Fresh Lemon and Natural Kiwi Pear complimented each other perfectly. The kids loved it as did the parents. The frozen fruit kept it nice and cold and it was still fizzy hours after the party finished. I was one happy mumma.

    Soda Stresm brings back childhood memories of being at grandmas during the summer and being treated to a Soda Stream. We would always giggle when the machine made a fart sound!!

  38. Renae October 3, 2014 at 7:27 pm #

    I really love the idea of the fruit punch you made so would give that a try and I think I would also like to try the natural orange. Think this would be great to take camping at least I know what the kids are drinking.

  39. Nicole Ryan October 3, 2014 at 7:37 pm #

    You had me at Pink Grapefruit!!! Who can resist pink fizzy – especially when it’s so much better than a big standard shop bought variety!!

  51. Jos October 4, 2014 at 4:53 am #

    Love to try lemon. Just decided in past week we really need a sodastream. Only buy bottles of mineral water and adding flavours. So much better for environment with a soda stream.

  52. Karita October 4, 2014 at 5:41 am #

    If I won I would try the natural lemon first. I’ve just given up coca cola (after 20+ years) and would like to find a healthier (yet still bubbly) alternative to get that refreshing feeling.

  53. Larissa October 4, 2014 at 6:00 am #

    I would try natural kiwi pear first πŸ™‚

  54. Kylie Archer October 4, 2014 at 6:09 am #

  65. Kelly October 5, 2014 at 7:22 am #

    I can’t split my boys between Cola Vanilla and Pink Lemonade… so I guess we’ll have to try both!!!!

  66. Ebony October 5, 2014 at 7:23 am #

  69. Lisa October 5, 2014 at 7:31 am #

    I remember having the first machine as a child and would love to introduce my girls to the magic.

  70. Lisa October 5, 2014 at 7:34 am #

    Magic machine. Would love to try all the new flavors

  71. Staci Biggins October 5, 2014 at 7:51 am #

    Any of the naturals flavours, they all sound great

  72. Letitia Couper-Darr October 5, 2014 at 8:02 am #

    Pink grapefruit
    Would be a real hoot
    Preservative free
    Would be perfect for me!

  73. Kirsty Martinese October 5, 2014 at 8:26 am #

  78. Nicole Clarke October 5, 2014 at 1:32 pm #

    I love the sound of the Naturals ranged…Kiwi & Pear sounds interesting but definitely would love the pink Grapefruit!

  79. Nardi October 5, 2014 at 2:39 pm #

    I would have to try Natural Lemon ast whole family would enjoy including all three kids. Selfishly, however, I’d love to try the Natural kiwi fruit.

  80. trish October 5, 2014 at 5:43 pm #

    Kiwi pear sounds awesome

  81. Bec October 5, 2014 at 8:14 pm #

    If I had a soda stream, the first flavour I would try would be cola… As part of a household who drink waaay too much ‘diet/calorie-free-but-full-of-other-hidden-nasties’, I’d love a healthier fizzy cola option!

  82. Michelle V October 6, 2014 at 3:27 am #

    Kiwi pear would be my first choice!

  83. Charlyn October 6, 2014 at 3:43 am #

    Lemon lime for me, how delicious

  84. Taryn Jorgensen October 6, 2014 at 4:12 am #

    Kiwi pear sounds very refreshing I would try this first.

  85. Kate October 6, 2014 at 5:09 am #

    What a wonderful idea the “naturals” range is. With a young family (and many, many upcoming birthday parties) what a great way to give kids the access to “fizzy” drinks they crave but knowing you aren’t filling them up with sugar or artificial preservatives.

    I think Lemon-Lime would be the first flavour that I’d try! Definitely right up my alley πŸ™‚

  86. Mel October 6, 2014 at 5:09 am #

    Lemon -lime would be perfect for this beautiful Spring weather

  87. Nicole kent October 6, 2014 at 6:15 am #

    It would have to be the Classic Cola flavour. It would be my homemade version of a can of coke that I’ve been craving so badly!

  88. Desi October 6, 2014 at 6:34 am #

    A SodaStream is at the top of my list for this Christmas. Great for the upcoming party/summer season. Even compact enough to take on holidays. Can’t wait to taste the naturals range and find our favorite.

  89. Sarah October 6, 2014 at 7:15 am #

    I’d try the Pink Grapefruit. Perfect for Spring/Summer

  90. Mary Preston October 6, 2014 at 7:25 am #

    Pink Grapefruit sounds so refreshing.

  91. Caroline October 6, 2014 at 7:51 am #

    Pink Grapefruit sounds delicious!

  93. shannan sullivan October 6, 2014 at 9:36 am #

    I would love to try cola & raspberry mixed together. Ive heard it tastes great

  94. Heather October 6, 2014 at 2:03 pm #

    can’t go past the traditional flavours and I would have to try raspberry first, my favourite.

  95. Michelle Jadrijevic October 6, 2014 at 4:07 pm #

    The lemon lime!

  96. Karly October 6, 2014 at 6:21 pm #

    Strawberry – http://www.sodastream.com.au/auretail/productmoreinfo.asp?catalog_name=Sodastream&category_name=Syrups&product_id=1022423610&callerpage=

    As a child soft drink was VERY exciting. Usually it was just water or cordial on offer. Now, as an adult, my go-to drink is always red and fizzy. (sometimes it’s sparking rose or moscato LOL!) but sometimes it’s bubbly red soft drink.

  97. Karen October 6, 2014 at 7:03 pm #

    kiwi-pear

  98. Karen October 6, 2014 at 7:03 pm #

  101. Sarah Armstrong October 7, 2014 at 6:42 am #

    Lemon Lime – got my taste buds watering

  102. Tina Carr October 7, 2014 at 6:34 pm #

    Would try classic cola for sure

  103. Lynda October 7, 2014 at 7:08 pm #

    The naturals range sounds lovely! I would love to try the pink grapefruit… Well be having my daughters birthday party soon and I’m sure it’ll be a hit!

  104. Elia October 7, 2014 at 7:23 pm #

    Your punch sounds awesome. Can’t wait to give it a go.

  105. Elia October 7, 2014 at 7:25 pm #

    Natural lemon sounds like a good one to try first

  106. Melissa Jones October 7, 2014 at 9:12 pm #

    Kiwi pear to satisfy my curiosity.

  109. Di October 8, 2014 at 12:46 pm #

    Lemon lime, hoping it’s not overly sweet.

  110. Jenny L October 8, 2014 at 1:00 pm #

    I’d love to try the grapefruit πŸ™‚

  111. Linda De October 8, 2014 at 1:12 pm #

    Defo pink grapefruit…. bought my first pink grapefruit only very recently..yum. Nothing like traditonal grapefruit in was so refreshing.

  112. Amanda Gorton October 8, 2014 at 1:26 pm #

    Sugar Free Raspberry and Cranberry – two of my favourite summer flavours combined in a healthy refreshing fun thirst quencher

  113. karina l October 8, 2014 at 2:34 pm #

    My husband is like a little boy – he loves his natural lemon fizzy drinks, just like the good old days back in the 80’s!

  114. Val C October 8, 2014 at 2:58 pm #

    Lemon-Lime is a favourite, store-bought drinks just don’t give you the same tastebud satisfaction!

  115. Vicki Kelly October 8, 2014 at 4:06 pm #

    I would try the Natural Lemon yum

  116. Michelle Gray October 8, 2014 at 5:24 pm #

    Pink Grapefruit sounds so yummy and refreshing.

  117. Alison Apps October 8, 2014 at 5:34 pm #

    Apple and pear is always delicious. So fresh and delightful to start or finish the day

  118. Mick G October 8, 2014 at 6:39 pm #

    Good old Raspberry as it conjures up fun memeories of fizzy drinks after a hot day at school

  119. Helen Gray October 8, 2014 at 8:17 pm #

    Pink grapefruit as it perfect with gin

  120. Karla Oleinikoff October 8, 2014 at 8:30 pm #

    The Green Tea Lychee, it sounds so delicious and refreshing, and in the naturals range, so even better!

  121. SANDY HORSFALL October 9, 2014 at 3:54 am #

    ‘GREEN TEA LYCHEE’ SOUNDS DELICIOUS TO ME AND AS IT’S THE FLAVOUR I THINK MY BOYS WOULD LEAST LIKE, I’D MAKE THAT FIRST SO THAT I CAN ACTUALLY ENJOY THE FIRST BOTTLE PRETTY MUCH TO MYSELF!!

  122. Cate October 9, 2014 at 6:59 am #

    Our son loves sucking on lemons, hence natural lemon would be our first choice!

  123. Gayle Richardson October 9, 2014 at 8:26 am #

    Something fresh and fruity just like me!

  124. sonia c October 9, 2014 at 8:44 am #

    Lemon/Lime but dont blame me if I put in some extra “bitters” for the adults

  125. Tanya Clarke October 9, 2014 at 8:58 am #

    Kiwi pear sounds yummy!

  126. Maria October 9, 2014 at 10:34 am #

    Lemon Lime. Perfect refresher for hot summer days.

  127. Em Lawes October 9, 2014 at 10:38 am #

    I’d scream for Green Tea Lychee. The kids probably won’t like it but why should they always have all the fun!

  128. Norman October 9, 2014 at 10:42 am #

    lemon and lime – mm refreshing.

  129. Fi October 9, 2014 at 4:43 pm #

    I’d try Pink Grapefruit as it has that unique bitter sweet taste with an after tang. I loved all the pictures and the look of the blog/site!
