This sophisticated Italian Soda is sweetened and flavored with rich pomegranate juice for a refreshing and antioxidant-rich drink. You only need two ingredients (or three for the cream version), with no sugar syrup needed. It’s a lovely and beautiful drink! I especially like it with a drizzle of coconut milk (my husband uses cream or half and half).
Pomegranate works particularly well for this type of drink because it has such a pronounced flavor. Other juices could easily become watered down too much, and so you would have to use a juice concentrate instead. The other possible method is the one I used for this Paleo Raspberry Cream Soda where I started with whole raspberries.
Make sure you buy 100% pomegranate juice, otherwise the flavor won’t be pronounced enough. I used Pom Juice, but you can also use something like this brand.
Another juice I’m eager to try as an Italian Soda is tart cherry juice. It’s also especially antioxidant-rich and with a robust flavor.
If you wanted to try a juice concentrate, you can find anything from blueberry concentrate, black cherry juice concentrate, and even elderberry concentrate. For juice concentrates you will only need a small portion per cup.
This is the Coconut Milk I like to use. It is guar gum free, and it is easy to stir into a drink.
This drink is paired nicely with quinoa pizzas, pasta dishes, and salads.
Pomegranate Italian Cream Soda (Dairy Free)
I eyeball the proportions. Fill the glass 3/4s full of sparkling water, and then finish it with the juice.
- ¾ cup of sparkling water
- ¼ cup of pomegranate juice
- 1-2 teaspoons Aroy-D Coconut Milk (or, if consuming dairy, cream or half and half)
Fill a cup with ice, and add sparkling water. Add juice, and stir in the coconut milk. Enjoy.

You had me at pomegranate and three ingredients. I’m glad there are delicious recipes without the use of industrial chemicals. I’m definitely going to enjoy this cream soda in the summer.
sour cherry sounds great I think I would like to try it but the taste of pomegranate fruit however is not my favorite, quite strange and unique taste but not in my taste. I was interested in this sour cherry because I really like sour flavors and such a juice on warm days chilled I think that it would be what I like. At least I think so, I have to try.
This recipe is very simple and easy and i am going to try this one at home.Thank You!
