Brittany Banks is a young woman who likes to experiment with food. She gets bored of always eating the same meals.

Italian sodas are delicious, but they get can 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 many you drink. These yummy drinks can get very addicting. Some stores have stopped carrying artificial flavoring. Check your local Walmart, Rosaures, Yoke's Fresh Market, or Albertson's.
