Sodastream: Genesis Model


Yes, so I know we’re going a little out of our comfort zone here by talking about something that may (or may not) have anything to do with beauty. But, I was really excited when Sodastream gave me a Genesis model to review. I love sodas, but drink them in moderation, and what better than to have freshly “brewed” soda whenever the craving strikes? This is absolutely perfect and EASY, too!!

The thing I like about Sodastream is that the possibilities are ENDLESS. It comes with SO many flavors, trial-size and full. There are also flavors to add into water (but without the fizz). I have only tried a few, so far, but the comparison is quite similar to big brands and store brands.

You’re probably wondering what flavors there are! There is the regular and diet colas, root beer, orange, lemon-lime, cream soda, ginger ale, pink grapefruit, and black currant and pear. This is just to name a few! I’ve tried the diet cola, root beer, ginger ale and black currant and pear, and I must say that this is perfect for our household because we make some and then we leave it in the fridge for those times we crave a flavored soda. It works perfectly!

So, let’s talk about how to make soda! It’s really simple and fun! I can see my son enjoying this when he grows up!

First step is to put the carbonator into the Sodastream (as per the manual):

And, then it will look like this:

Now, take the bottle and fill with water and chill (My hubs and I chuckled here because we were, like, “Should we relax now or chill the bottle?”) Haha, jokes aside, we knew it meant the latter:

So, then, you will press the button at the top 3 times. Firmly press the button and quickly release each time. You *WILL* hear a LOUD buzz. It startled us, so if it doesn’t startle you, you don’t have proper fizz.

And, this will result in:


Now, fill up a cap with your choice of soda flavoring up to the line.

Pour into the bottle. Shake gently – best way to do this is to turn it upside down and then continue until color has dispersed throughout. Serve and enjoy!! CHEERS!
