Mealtime Magic: Whole30 Suitable Spritzer Recipes

The Whole30 Diet is a hot topic lately as a way to jumpstart a more mindful and healthier mindset around food choices. Here are several Whole30-friendly spritzer recipes. Drinking water is a staple of not only weight loss, but a healthy lifestyle change --- however, many people find still water difficult to drink. Frankly, it’s just a bit boring. 
Enter SodaStream: With the touch of a button, SodaStream carbonates water, turning it from flat into sparkling water. Not only is sparkling water easier for many people to drink (Studies show that SodaStream owners consume 43% more water than non-owners – that’s approximately 3 more glasses each day), it’s cheaper and better for the earth than starting a La Croix addiction in the name of weight loss!

Watermelon Jalapeno Crush
  • 1/8 of a Watermelon (cubed)
  • One bottle of Soda Stream sparkling water
  • ½ lime
  • Mint leaves
  • One jalapeño
  • Ice
  1. Throw the Watermelon, ice, mint (depending on how minty you want it), a few thin slices of jalapeño (or more depending on how spicy you want it!) and a squeeze of lime into a good strong blender.
  2. When thoroughly blended transfer the mixture into 4 cups so that they are 1/3 full. Top with sparkling water.
  3. Garnish with mint and extra jalapeño rings.

Cucumber and Lime Sparkling Water
  • Sodastream sparkling water
  • Cucumber
  • Lime
  1. Use your SodaStream to prepare sparkling water (fizz to your liking)
  2. Wash the cucumber and slice wide thin stripes (you can use a vegetable peeler)
  3. Pour the sparkling water to a big jug, add the cucumber slices and add some drops of lime for extra flavor. Serve cold.

Strawberry Mint SodaStream Spritzer
  • Sparkling water
  • 3 strawberries
  • Mint leaves
  1. Use your SodaStream to prepare fresh sparkling water, and pour it into a tall glass.
  2. Dice the strawberries and add to the glass.
  3. Wash the mint leaves and add a few to the glass with sparkling water and strawberries.
  4. Let it sit for a few minutes to allow the flavors to emerge.
