As the ice cream base, I used my Healthy Homemade Vanilla Bean Ice Cream.

As the soda topping, I used Zevia’s Black Cherry Soda.

Because what’s the secret to a happy, bubbly life?  This BOMB, amazing-tasting, sugar-free, and zero-calorie soda.

DUH.

Zevia is an all natural, sugar free soda company.  They ditched the unhealthy ingredients in typical soda, like the high-fructose corn syrup, caramel color, and additives, to make a simple and clean soda that we can feel good about drinking.  I first discovered them years ago when I was in college and have been drinking their sodas ever since.  My favorite flavors are the black cherry, strawberry, and grape.

With zero calories, zero sugar, and zero artificial sweeteners.  You can live a healthy, balanced lifestyle without sacrificing all things sweet.

Kiss those sugary soda cravings goodbye because Zevia’s got you covered 😉
