The BEST Sodastream Recipes
I love my Sodastream! But, sometimes I get tired of the store-bought syrups & flavors that are available. (Or I’m just looking to save some money!)
If you’re looking for SodaStream flavors, we’ve written a blog post on the ones that are available to buy here. But, if you’re looking to make your own SodaStream recipes & DIY flavors, look no further! I’ve rounded up a list of my favorite ways to make my own SodaStream drinks.
I’ve broken this down for your easy reading into three main categories of SodaStream recipes:
- Infusions & Fruit-Based Recipes (flavoring with natural ingredients like cucumber or pomegranate)
- Homemade Soda Syrups (make your own Ginger Ale or other syrups)
- Other DIY Flavor Ideas (these are easy flavors to make like adding a sweet tea syrup or Crystal Light. Not quite an infusion, but also not your typical soda. These are ideas for the adventurous!)
You can get really creative with your own soda flavors! Mixing fruits, herbs and other juices can create a combination that is an incredible flavor.
First, here are some of my own homemade favorite infusions and fruit-based recipes that you’ll love!
SodaStream Infusions & Fruit Juice REcipe Ideas
1. Infused Cucumber & Mint
Slice half of a cucumber and a half cup of fresh mint leaves, loosely packed. Let it sit in a gallon of water for 12 hours. You’ll have an incredibly tasty water that you can then carbonate in your SodaStream. This recipe rivals even the best La Croix flavors!
Filter out the cucumber and mint with a strainer before carbonating in the SodaStream. You can add lime or lemon after carbonation for an especially refreshing drink!
2. Pomegranate Juice & Lemon
We buy Pom from Costco and use just a couple tablespoons and a squeeze of lemon for a delicious drink!
3. Strawberry & Mint
Chop a cup of strawberries and a half cup of loosely packed mint. Place in a gallon of water for 12 hours. Strain the fruit and mint, and then carbonate with your SodaStream.
4. Ginger & Lemon
Boil freshly 1/2 of fresh ground ginger for 20 minutes in 1 cup of water, and then strain. Add the ginger to your carbonated water with a squeeze of lemon.
5. Grapefruit & Blood Orange
A simple squeeze of grapefruit and blood orange is a great way to flavor your SodaStream.
6. Lime & Raspberry
Muddle raspberry at the bottom of your glass and then add a squeeze of lime. Top it off with your carbonated water.
7. Raspberries, Lime, & Basil
Infuse water with raspberries and basil for 6-10 hours. Carbonate the water and then top off with a squeeze of lemon.
8. Cantaloupe & Cucumber
This is one of my favorite infusions! Slice half a cucumber and a half cup of cantaloupe. Infuse for 6-10 hours and then carbonate!
9. Pineapple & Mint
This SodaStream recipe is both fresh and tropical tasting. It makes a great mixer with rum as well! You can also make a syrup using the syrup and a can of pineapple and letting it soak with mint. You only need a bit for a great homemade SodaStream syrup.
10. Blueberry & Sage
Muddle blueberries and sage in a glass. Add the carbonated water for a great, fresh tasting soda. Turn it into a cocktail — it also goes great with vodka.
11. Raspberry Orange
Muddled raspberries in a glass, plus a squeeze of orange. Add carbonated water for a simple soda that tastes great. This can also be an infusion flavor if you let the raspberry and orange slices sit in water for 10-12 hours, then filter before carbonating.
12. Peach Thyme
Infuse water with peach and thyme. Add a cup of chopped peaches and thyme a cup of peaches
13. Lime & Lemongrass
Boil a half cup of chopped lemongrass and sugar in a cup of water to make a delicious fruit-based homemade soda syrup. Carbonate your water and then add the lemongrass syrup and a squeeze of lime.

Ginger Ale is one of my favorite sodas, and it’s one of the simplest soda syrups to make. All you need is sugar and fresh ginger. Get my full recipe on homemade ginger ale here.
17. Sparkling Lemonade Syrup
Make your own simple syrup by boiling 1 cup of water and 1 cup of sugar until the sugar is completely dissolved. Add in a lemon peel while the water boils. Remove the lemon peel and add in fresh squeeze lemon juice. I typically use about 3 lemons, but you can add as much as you want according to your preferences – use more if you want it extra sour!
Make your own homemade Sprite with this all natural lemon lime soda syrup. You only need a 1/2 cup of syrup per liter of sparkling water that you make in a SodaStream. You can add more if you desire extra sweetness. Get a recipe from the NYT Cooking here.
The main ingredient in cream soda is vanilla. you can make your own version with just vanilla, sugar, and lemon! Get the full recipe here.
