This cherry cola coconut slushie is kind of like half-float, half-slushie. But it is one hundred percent very delicious. While also being sugar-free, and vegan. This three-ingredient slushie is one of my favorite things right now. And I really hope you love it too.
In my twenties, when I worked in the service industry, I was very dependent on diet soda. My long shifts behind the bar were fueled by it. This chemical concoction once ruled my world, but eventually my grip on it loosened. Now instead I drink Zevia cola.
This post is sponsored by Zevia. And, I’m proud to partner with them because their products are proudly free of calories, sugar, artificial sweeteners, GMOs and caramel color. They’re made with real ingredients. And they’re sweetened naturally with stevia. Everything matters to the folks at Zevia. From the packaging they select, to the way they manufacture and transport their products, ensuring they are working as efficiently for the consumer and the planet are of the utmost importance.
Stevia is a sweet little miracle of nature. Originally found in Paraguay, this small shrub, native to the sunflower family, provides two hundred times the sweetness of sugar yet has no caloric value or nor does it raise blood sugar levels. Stevia is one of my favorite ways to sweeten foods naturally. And particularly drinks like sparkling water, teas and cocktails.
