Healthy Homemade Grape Fizz Recipe
Like I mentioned above I don’t let my boys drink soda unless it’s a special occasion, and even then I limit them to one. That’s why when Kidstir reached out to see if I would share this recipe with you, we had to try it out.
I was so surprised at how easy it is to prepare and we all loved the flavor. I hope you enjoy it. If you recreate it please tag bot Kidstir and me on social media. We’d love to see your pictures!
Wondering what a homemade grape fizz is? It’s a better-for-you soda is made with just three ingredients including fresh grapes. It’s easy enough for the kids to make on their own!
If your kids reach for a can of soda, have them peek at the ingredients—they’ll see artificial coloring, preservatives, and up to 50 grams of sugar! Instead, help them make this better-for-you-soda with just three ingredients—fruit juice, carbonated water, and a little sugar.

Healthy Homemade Grape Fizz
Makes 4 Servings
2 cups seedless red grapes, washed
2 cups sparkling water (plain carbonated water)
simple syrup (optional, see recipe below)
1. First, pull the rinsed grapes off the stems. Place them into a blender.
2. A grown-up can help blend the grapes until they turn into juice.
3. Set a strainer over a measuring cup. Pour the juice into the strainer. Press it through the strainer by stirring with a spoon. You should now have about 1 cup of grape juice.
4. Fill a small pitcher with the sparkling water. Add the grape juice and stir well.
5. Taste the grape fizz. What do you think? If it’s too tart, stir in 3 to 6 tablespoons of Simple Syrup to the pitcher. Pour into glasses.
6. To make a sweetener for your grape fizz, a grown-up can heat 1 cup of sugar and 1 cup of water in a saucepan. Bring it to a boil and stir. When the sugar has dissolved, remove it from the heat and let it cool. Add 1 tablespoon of syrup at a time until your drink tastes perfect to you!
