We already know our readers love Sodastream!
Thanks to our recent review here, it seemed so many of you took an interest in this home sparkling drinks system, that Sodastream have returned to Six Little Hearts for a repeat review and giveaway! That's great news for those of you who missed out the first time.
With summer here, owning a Sodastream can help you to save yourself the bother of carting home countless bottles of soft drink to keep the thirst at bay. Having a carbonated drinks maker on your kitchen bench is convenient, fun and makes you the absolute best parent in the eyes of your kids! It's also a system that is environmentally friendly too. Just one or two special Sodastream bottles are all you need to produce countless sparkling beverages well into the future, resulting in dollars saved at the checkout and a clearer conscience as well.
If you haven't yet acquainted yourself with this ultimate in family appliances, please check out our full review of the sensational Sodastream Power and Sodastream system which we reviewed here just recently, to come up to speed.
|The Sodastream Power is a power operated, fully automated carbonated drinks maker.|
One of these could be yours!
Our Sodastream Power is very much an appreciated and active member of our family. On average, our Sodastream is used every day in our home. Owning a Sodastream appliance means we are always ready for hot days, family outings, parties, picnics, relaxing weekends and unannounced guests. This Christmas, this one appliance will serve our family well for all of the above.
The whole family really enjoy the Sodastream Waters Fruits, Sparkling Water Mixes. This line are naturally flavoured and very refreshing. Compared to traditional carbonated drinks available at the stores, the taste of these is far superior with less sugary flavours that are instead, delicate and refreshing.
With Christmas just days away, we thought it would be a great opportunity to share our family's favourite Christmas punch recipe. We make this beverage annually and it's a very refreshing drink which aids to digest all that rich Christmas fare on the big day.
This year, we've given our original punch recipe a new twist using our Sodastream drinks maker and the results have been just as popular as ever. (Our kids downed the entire bowl in just under an hour with some enthusiastic feedback!)
If you already own a Sodastream at your place, you will be right to make this special drink with just a few additional supplies in your cupboard. If this is not you however, rest assured you will still be able to make punch without a Sodastream too - you will have to buy your beverages from the store however.
If you're not yet a dedicated Sodastreamer, please do make sure you enter the fantastic giveaway at the end of this post, to win a Sodastream Power valued at $249! Every family deserves one of these contentment makers. It's a household essential!
Refreshing Christmas Punch made easy using your Sodastream!
Makes: Approximately 4 litres in around 5 minutes.
You will need:
One punch bowl, cups and ladle.
One litre of Sodastream Waters Fruits Orange Mango flavour
One litre of Sodastream Ginger Ale
One litre of good quality natural pineapple juice
One tin of Golden Circle Tropical Fruit Salad, Traditional in Juice
Mint sprigs to decorate and any sliced fruits to add Christmas colour to the finished punch. (Strawberries and Kiwi slices are ideal.)
Step one: Carbonate two bottles of fresh, plain tap water in your Sodastream drinks maker.
Step two: When done, add your required Sodastream flavours to each of the carbonated waters.
Step three: Now pour each ready-made Sodastream flavour into your punch bowl: the Orange and Mango, the Ginger Ale, the natural unsweetened pineapple juice and lastly, the entire tin of fruit salad including the juice. Give this concoction a gentle stir with a ladle before adding any sliced fruits, mint and ice cubes to decorate.
Your easy Christmas punch is now ready to serve!
This is an alcohol-free, family-friendly version. You can of course add sparkling wine to your punch for any grown-up festivities. (Very delicious!)
Punch makes an ideal kids' beverage. It's so refreshing to sip on a glass of this prior to your Christmas dinner and in-between courses. If you're well prepared, you can stock up on this recipe's requirements and try this out on Christmas Eve, as well as throughout the holiday season. Either way, you will most likely need to top-up your punchbowl several times so be prepared with plenty of extra Sodastream flavours on hand, as well as juices, fruits and ice.
Making punch is a tasty way to expand on your Sodastream's purpose within your own home this summer.
Feel free to mix-up the flavours in this recipe too. There are many Sodastream flavours to try out. Just stick to this basic recipe and have fun experimenting with your own new tastes.
The value of owning a Sodastream drinks maker continues for years past your initial purchase. We can't recommend the benefits and flavours high enough. Visit the Sodastream website for more information and to view the range of beverage makers available. A Sodastream would make a fantastic Christmas gift idea too! You can purchase Sodastream products at all good department stores and online.
