Berries and Peach Soda

It’s summer time and are you ready to beat the heat?… I am going to share my recipes for blended fruit juices and many other summer drinks which will definitely quench your thirst. Most of them are rich in antioxidants and other vital nutrition and vitamins. This non-alcoholic mocktail is a combination of strawberries, blackberries and peach along with sparkling water which gives a fizz and makes it so refreshing.
