Refreshing Pomegranate Cream Soda

As the temperatures gradually rise, or in some cases – leap, into summer, a nice cooling drink is always welcome.  This is a great one to take out on the patio while you BBQ or just sit and enjoy the day.

It’s a little like an Italian cream soda, but not quite and it’s so simple to make.  Obviously, this would also be great with orange syrup, pineapple syrup, or almost any flavored fruit syrup.   You could get addicted…

Pomegranate Cream Soda

3 tablespoon sugar free Pomegranate Syrup*
2 tablespoons Heavy Cream
1/2 teaspoon Vanilla Extract
1 can sugar free Ginger Ale
1 cup of crushed Ice

In a blender, add the syrup, vanilla, ginger ale and half the crushed ice. Pulse several times to mix together. Add the rest of the ice and pulse again  until the ice is mostly crushed in. Add the cream and pulse once or twice to blend it in.

Pour into 2 glasses and serve.

*  Don’t have flavored syrups?  You can use the squeeze bottle drink flavors/ liquid water enhancers, like Mio, Crystal Light or whatever brand your local store carries.  Use 4 to 5 squeezes to add the flavor.  I tried it out with Blueberry Pomegranate.  Delicious.
