Blueberry Italian Cream Sodas

Oh my gosh, I love Italian Cream Sodas.

Our local coffee shop makes amazing raspberry and strawberry ones, but at $4 a pop I knew I had to start making my own.

The food closet next door to my job gave away 2 baskets of blueberries and I knew I was going to make these.

The homemade syrup is super easy to whip up and blueberries can be substituted for any fruit, I'm actually going to make strawberry syrup for them in just a bit.

So I took a lot of photos for you because this recipe is ridiculously easy!

For the Syrup:
1 cup sugar
1 cup water
1 1/2 cups blueberries

For the Cream Soda:
Blueberry syrup
Club Soda
Heavy Cream

In a saucepan, simmer the cup of water and sugar until the sugar has dissolved. Add in the blueberries and boil for 10 minutes, stirring constantly, after the time is up, cook the blueberries for 10 more minutes. You want the berries to be mushy and the syrup to be dark.
Strain through a fine mesh strainer in a bowl or heat proof container, you want to keep the syrup but get rid of the blueberries, they did their job.
Cool completely and place in the fridge to cool the rest of the way.
Now... you wanna make cream sodas?
The amount of syrup, club soda and heavy cream will vary based on your preference. My blueberries weren't very sweet so I added a good amount of syrup to the soda.

Enjoy this bubbly, sweet, creamy drink! Trust me when I say this drink would be amazing using strawberries or raspberries! It tastes like bubbly blueberry ice cream... Hope you all try this today!
