The last thing you want to tell your children before bed is “Don’t drink soda.” But, if they’re anything like me, they love the flavor of a good glass of pop. Sometimes it’s just not practical to make your own sodas all the time or store them in the fridge for an on-demand fix. I’ve found that some pre-made sodas are loaded with artificial sweeteners and other ingredients that aren’t so great for my family. My favorite alternative? A delicious recipe for Yoda Soda that will have everyone saying “yum!”
