Clean drinking: Homemade sprite recipe with no chemicalsWanna know a secret?

I drink “Sprite” at least five nights a week.

But it’s not real Sprite.

EWWW! Sick! Gag/barf/throw!!!

I mean…let’s get real, I’d rather die than drink Sprite.


Anyway, I’m super excited to share a top-secret homemade Sprite recipe ( invented by my friend, Mike ) that I’m literally OBSESSED with:

Homemade sprite recipe: Lauryn Evarts talks fitness, health, and diet.

Can we just talk how amazing this bubbly lil recipe tastes?

Mmmkay, let’s talk about it:

First of all, it’s like ten calories. Zero artifical sugar. Fresh & clean ingreds. The ‘soda’ contains lemon & lime & mint & blackberries. Super clean, right?

Some benefits:

Lemon = helps neutralize free radicals & contains antibacterial properties.

Lime = an excellent weight reducer & benefits the skin.

Mint = a natural stimulate & promotes digestion.

Blackberries = super high in vitamins & antioxidants.

Plus soda water ( note: use a soda water with barely any sodium ) is sooo filling!

FYI: this version ‘Sprite’ happens to be the most refreshing thing, ever.

Don’t believe me?

I’m enjoying a chilled glass ( bible! ) as I write this post.

Oh, & on Fridays, it may or may not taste good with a coupla splashes of vodka.

  1. Delish!! Throw some gin in there and you’ve got yourself a gorgeous summer cocktail too 🙂

  2. This is basically ALL I drink in the summer lol. Well, minus the Stevia. I’m not sure why I didn’t think about adding it before, though! Great idea! 🙂

  3. Thanks for this! I stopped drinking any kind of coke (or soda) about a year ago (I was a 2 can a day diet coke junkie) but I do splurge once every month or so. Since I don’t drink them very often anymore though, they’ve started tasting pretty chemically, syrupy, sugary, yucky instead of being a “treat” so I’ll have to try this next time I have a craving for one!

  4. genius! it probably tastes way better than Sprite too! Also, just wanted to thank you for your egg white french toast recipe. Made it today and it was delish!

  5. OMG!!! Thank you sooooo much for this recipe. I’m in the middle of ending a very icky love affair with Dt. Coke and this recipe is going to come in handy.


  6. Made this for my friends at my Superbowl party and it was a HUGE hit! We of course added vodka and it was so delish and refreshing! Thanks for posting it.

  7. Hi 🙂 I love your photos and presentation – everything is so pretty! I have just started a blog about beautiful healthy food and I would be so incredibly happy if you checked it out !

  8. The problem with this is the stevia. Artificial sugar is just as bad for you as regular sugar. In fact worse, it has the same bad effects as sugar and more. Let me explain, your only suppose to have 8 grams of sugars a day. Long story short the processed food companies made sure this word didn’t get out. Now you think you know what happens with sugar but most of you dont. All food turns into sugar. We can’t do anything about that. When you eat nuts, fruit , vegetables, and etc the fiber slows down how fast your body digest the sugar.That is important because when you eat stuff that isn’t packed with fiber all the sugar is rushed down your body; your body can’t handle it so it makes the sugar insulin. Insulin is storage also known as fat. Now I know your gonna hate about this but the truth sucks. After all sugar has been found more addictive then cocaine & heroin!!!

  9. On weekends, rather than adding Vodka, try it with Gin. Gin7UP was my grand-ma’s drink of choice and I found that out (or was reminded anyway) when I asked for one myself at my parents over the holidays.

    I’ll try your recipe once I get my Soda

  10. SOOOO much better for you than the corn syrup and artificial flavoring concoctions you can get at the store! I kicked my soda habit cold turkey, but it would have been ten times easier if I had this recipe! And, as Caterina said, it’s the perfect base for a gin cocktail.

  11. Your writing style and smarminess is so annoying that even though I’m looking for a recipe like this I refuse to use it. Grow up.

  12. I’m trying this next weekend for my birthday party! Nice and amazing recipe shared by you, thank you so much for that.
