This homemade ginger ale recipe is so delicious and refreshing and contains no refined sugar or artificial sweeteners. It’s simple to make and is a healthy alternative to sugary carbonated beverages.
To make this healthy ginger ale, I boiled dates and ginger in water to make a sweet, ginger flavoured date syrup. Once the syrup is ready and cooled, just add soda water and some ice if you like! It’s that simple.
