Please allow me to blow your mind:

Add a drop of vanilla extract or a small glug of da vinci vanilla to your orange mio and seltzer. Creamsicle in a glass. I'm having one right now.

Thanks...I'm going to try both!

Love Mio...haven't put it in seltzer water, that's a great idea! Though if you like Fanta this is an actual Fanta brand of water enhancer now, in both orange and grape flavors. It would taste even closer to the real thing!

Just made homemade jello-o with mio flavors - the orange soda you suggested is next! Thanks!

Silly question here but is seltzer water the same as club soda?? This sounds yummy! I was planning on buying a soda stream so I could have diet orange soda so this is much cheaper!

Club soda has salt added. Seltzer does not. Other than that, it's just fizzy water. I like seltzer better because if it gets flat I'll still drink it, but when the club soda gets flat it tastes salty to me.

For an even creamier creamsicle soda.....add cream!!! I put cream in my diet root beer, and it tastes just like a root beer float to me. I also add it to orange soda some times. I bet it would be good in berry flavored drinks as well but I have never tried it. Oh how I love creamy things.

Yup, I do this and enjoy it very much. I was previously using SF DaVinci's for Italian cream sodas, but now I'm putting Dasani and Mio flavors in there and it is delicious. Right now I'm sipping pink lemonade.

I made a mio frozen dessert last night.
2 oz cream and a splash of water with a squirt of orange mio, froze it in a dixie cup with a spoon in it. It was like a sherbet popsicle.

I just tried the Dasani grape over the seltzer water...now I will try the mio choices next...loved it.....Just like the real grape soda.... I had fixed cystal light but I love the grape in this...Will get several when I am back in the groc...store....
Thanks :)

The Dasani pineapple-coconut is divine. I must not be the only one who thinks so because it's always "out" when I go to buy more. I've taken to buying them five at a time.

If you drink alcohol, you can add it to Vodka and water, give it a splash of coconut milk and you've got a really tasty lo-carb Pina Colada.
