Zero Calorie Homemade Stevia Root Beer

While at the grocery store picking up some vanilla extract I found something that I had never noticed before... Root Beer Concentrate.  Intrigued, I picked up a bottle, although I wasn't quite sure at the time how I might use it.

The box includes a recipe to make your own root beer and of course it uses A LOT of sugar.

I just made my version of the recipe, substituting stevia (this time Truvia brand) for the sugar.

3/4 Cup hot water
9 pkts Truvia
3/4 tsp root beer concentrate
1/2 liter club soda (or any plain carbonated water) (16.9 oz)

Dissolve Truvia into hot water.
Add root beer concentrate and stir.
Chill mixture in refrigerator.
Add club soda to chilled root beer mixture.
Serve immediately.

It has been years since I have had a soda-pop so this was indeed a special treat.  Definitely will make this again!

  1. Cool! I was wondering if that worked. Will make it for my T1 diabetic son!
