Mix up an all-natural Cherry Vanilla Cream Soda for a tall, cool drink!

All Natural Cherry Vanilla Cream Soda is easy to make at home!

Are you a regular soda drinker? I’m not really. If we go out to a restaurant for lunch, I get Diet Coke. I also use soda in cocktail mixers sometimes like Cinnamon Cherry Bourbon 7-UP (yum), but for the most part, I stick to my three core beverages: water, coffee, and wine.

Part of why I don’t drink more soda or buy it for my family is because even diet soda seems pretty junky. What it lacks in sugar, it makes up for in artificial sweeteners. I’m happy to save on the calories, but I don’t know if chugga-lugging aspartame all day every day is a good idea. (My daily wine habit might not be a good idea either, but let’s stick to the topic at hand, shall we?)

All Natural Cherry Vanilla Cream Soda is easy to make at home!

Making my own soda seemed like a great way to get a bubbly, sweet treat without too much sugar or artificial ingredients. This Cherry Vanilla Cream Soda only takes a couple minutes to make and tastes way fresher than anything you’d get at the store. You can use fresh or frozen cherries, and the cream is optional if you’d rather have a dairy-free soda. Keep a bag of frozen cherries in your freezer and be ready to make all natural cream soda when you get a soda craving!

If you have a Soda Stream (affiliate link), you can make your own seltzer for this recipe. I got my husband one a few years ago, and it’s handy to have on hand for bubbly water when we need it. We never really use the flavored syrups that are available with it (see above re: artificial ingredients), but it’s great for a never ending supply of seltzer water. Of course, you can also just use bottled seltzer from the store. I hope you love this cherry cream soda however you decide make it!

Yum! The Thai dippers look really cute- I love that you can weed out gluten, etc. I love the nostalgia of a good cream soda, too!

Thank you, Wendy! The box shown here was a sample Graze sent before I entered all my preferences. Today I got my first custom box, and I LOVE it! I think this will be a subscription box I actually stick with.

My 21 month old loves the mixes and grabbing out all the tasty bits.

I am a big snacker so I love the sound of these Graze snack boxes. Love that you can personalize them and the different separate compartments! I am still loving cherries so much so that Cherry Vanilla Cream Soda sounds perfect! It looks so refreshing too :)

I was receiving the Graze sub box for a while and I loved it! I cancelled it because I made myself cancel all of my sub boxes until after my wedding, but trust me, this one is a winner! I love that you can preemptively weed out things you know you won’t like (for me, I HATE raisins!) and choose not to receive anything you didn’t enjoy (I didn’t have that problem), and even ask for more of your favorites!

Congratulations on your upcoming wedding, Heather! I know all these subscriptions can add up, but Graze is a nice treat since it’s pretty affordable. I don’t like raisins either, so I trashed all those too. Then I “Loved” everything with chocolate or spicy. Can’t wait to see what my custom box turns out to be. Thanks so much for stopping by :)
