    Love this! I switch out the brown sugar for coconut sugar to lower the fructose. Kids love it with the soda stream and in frozen slushies!

    made this the other day and love it. In fact the whole family loves it. Very easy to make. It is very sweet but you only need a tiny bit in the glass with some mineral water. Next time I am going to try it with juice of half a lemon to give it some tang. Great recipe.
