DIY Italian Soda

Italian sodas are delicious, but they get can be expensive. Every coffee stand I have gone to on the East Coast charges $3.50 for one of these—and that's for a 16-ounce cup. This type of drink is really simple to make. I want to help people save money by making it themselves. The measurements below will vary. It depends on if you want extra flavoring in your drink or no whipped cream.

Are Italian Sodas Healthy?

Italian sodas can be fattening. Be careful with how much you drink because these yummy beverages can get very addicting. Some stores have stopped carrying artificial flavoring. Check your local Walmart, Rosaures, Yoke's Fresh Market, or Albertson's.
