We’ve had a Soda Stream for several years and we use it often. When we first got it, we bought a bunch of the Soda Stream syrups and none of those were big hits but lately we’ve tried a few things . . like making our own root beer syrup or adding prickly pear syrup, or adding cranberry juice and simple syrup . . just a few concoctions that we like better than the storebought syrups.
This week, at some point, I remembered the pineapple soda from Borden’s. Borden’s was a dairy in Lake Charles and in the front area, they had an ice cream shop and we would get malts, shakes, sundaes and whatever ice cream related item we wanted. It was always a treat for our parents to take us to Borden’s either on a Friday or Saturday evening. One of my favorite things was a pineapple soda so I figured we could re-create it with the Soda Stream.
With a little carbonated water, a few spoonfuls of simple syrup, some crushed pineapple (from a can) and some vanilla ice cream, I took a trip back in time . . maybe 50 years ago . . and had a yummy homemade pineapple soda1
