Homemade Chocolate Soda

 

Plastic-Free groceries

It’s 90°F here in Oakland. The kitties are lolling around and so are we. Time to break out the soda maker and have ourselves a little treat. And by “ourselves,” I mean me.   Kitties don’t get to have chocolate (tough life) and Michael wasn’t particularly interested.  Freak.

Ingredients:

1) Carbonated water (via Soda Club soda maker)
2) Homemade chocolate syrup (recipe posted on My Plastic-free Life)
3) Ice (from stainless steel ice cube tray)
4) Glass drinking straw (via Glass Dharma)

Mix it all up and suck. Awesome, vegan, and plastic-free.

A Note about leaving comments: I switched to the LifeFyre comment system because it weeds out the hundreds of spam comments I was getting each day and also allows us to respond to individual comments, to "Like" comments, and to link them to social media if we so desire. But if you do not wish to login via social media, you don't have to. You can comment without logging in! Here's how:

  1. Type your comment in the box.
  2. Click "Post Comment As" button.
  3. When the LiveFyre box pops up, type a name, email address, and optional website address in the fields provided.
  4. Click Next.
  5. LiveFyre will ask you for a user name and password. But if you don't want to register or use a password, you don't have to. Just click "Post as Guest" which is to the left of the black "Finish" button. Your comment will be saved.
  6. Please email me if you have questions or problems. This new system is supposed to make it easier for all of us to converse, not harder.

Where can I buy carbonated water? Nope, not in any grocery I've been in.

Thank you for all the great ideas! I need to stop thinking about it and get a lot of cloth bags for shopping. I guess my main problem with the veggies is that I'm feeding a family of six and I only go to town once a week so I don't have room in my fridge for everything I need to store. In the winter I keep things in a cooler in a garage but that obviously doesn't work in the summer. I have been thinking about getting a second fridge but I really don't want to spend the money to buy it or run it. I guess I just need my own year round green house!!

I'm trying to use less plastic. I have a question for you. When you buy out of the bulk bins what do you put the food in? Not the plastic bags they provide I'm guessing? And what about produce? I don't know what to store my produce in to keep it fresh besides the plastic bags from the store.

Ooh, Lazy Organizer, you have questions and I have answers! About storing produce, I have a whole post on it at my other blog, Fake Plastic Fish: http://fakeplasticfish.com/2010/05/how-to-store-produce-without-plastic/ And I also have a whole list of solutions for how to go plastic-free here: http://fakeplasticfish.com/plasticfreeguide #5 on that list explains how to use bulk bins, but read the section above about produce because there is a list of types of bulk/produce bags you can get.
