A Sugar Free Creaming Soda Spider

This Sugar Free Creaming Soda Spider recipe was made in honor of the newest addition to the Nexba family: our Creaming Soda Sparkling Infusion! This drink is completely sugar free with no nasties whatsoever (as you’d expect from Team Nexba), yet tastes just as sweet and fun as the OG soft drink you loved as a kid.

For this recipe we’ve paired Nexba Creaming Soda with a homemade vegan vanilla ice cream, made with just three key ingredients. It's easy-peasy to make and is just as creamy and delicious as the real deal.

When it comes to toppings, the more the merrier! We’ve loaded this decadent spider with homemade cacao sprinkles, grated (sugar free and dairy free) chocolate, a few freeze dried berries (go easy with these fellas, they're sugar bombs in miniature!), popcorn and coconut. Get creative with the kids and add desiccated coconut sprinkles, Passionfruit Mojito Mocktail Gummies and Very Berry Sugar-Free Rollups, because why the heck not?!

The good stuff you'll get:

Unlike traditional ice cream spiders that are laden with sugar, colourings, flavours and preservatives, our version is 100% natural.

  • Nexba Creaming Soda: Our entire range of sparkling infusions (and entire range of drinks for that matter) are naturally sweet with zero sugar. All our products are also lactose free, GMO free, BPA free, gluten free, vegan and keto friendly. The flavours are completely natural and even the preservatives are natural derived from citric acid and malic acid (from foods like oranges, lemons and limes!). A sweet drink you can actually feel good about!
  • Coconut cream: Coconut is a fantastic plant-based alternative for milk-based products. It's rich in vitamins including Vitamin C and E, as well as B vitamins. Coconut is a fab source of healthy fats (the kind you need to give you energy!) that keep you feeling fuller, longer.
