Soda doesn’t have to be nasty colas with high fructose syrup, it can be delicious beverages that can be a special treat, without feeling gross after you drink it. One of our favorite discoveries is Nature’s Flavors, which crafts USDA Certified syrups with no toxins, chemicals, or synthetics. Their syrups are vegan, gluten and alcohol-free, as well as kosher.
While they have many flavors, their mango chili syrup caught our attention because we love the mix of sweet and spicy. Here is our favorite recipe for mango chili soda.
Vegan, Gluten-Free and Organic Mango Chili Soda
1 cup of filtered water
1 cup of organic, vegan sugar
1/2 cup Natures Flavors mango chili syrup
Bring all of the ingredients to a boil in a heavy saucepan, then turn down the heat to low-medium, letting the syrup simmer until it’s reduced to about half of it’s volume. Remove from the heat and let it cool. Transfer it to a glass bottle with a tight seal. When ready to serve, combine syrup with carbonated water over ice. Start with a few tablespoons, taste, and add more if you’d like a stronger taste.
