I received 2 bottles of Sparkling Ice. I got the Crisp Apple Sparkling Water and the Peach Sparkling Iced Tea at no cost in exchange for my honest opinion.
I was excited to try these new flavors from Sparkling Ice. Apple and Peach are two of my favorite flavors for a lot of things, fruit, candy, pie, water and tea being just a few. I have been drinking Sparkling Ice for a while, but had not tried these flavors yet. One of the things I like most about Sparkling Ice is the sparkle. I tend to drink a lot of soda, and I like the carbonation. With Sparkling Ice I can "trick" my brain into thinking I'm drinking soda, but I'm actually drinking something much healthier. The Crisp Apple flavor is very refreshing and crisp, and the apple taste is spot on. The Peach Tea has a great peach and tea combination flavor that is perfect for hot days. These can be used in mixed drinks, and in recipes as well to add the perfect touch of fizzy flavor to your favorite drink or snack. Sparkling Ice is a great product and everyone in our house loves it!

Crisp Apple Donuts
Yield - 12 donuts plus holes
Cook Time: 10 minutes
Inactive Time: 3 hours or overnight
For The Donuts:
1 cup Crisp Apple Sparkling Ice
6 tablespoons unsalted butter (room temperature)
½ cup Splenda Sugar Blend
¼ cup whole milk
3 teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon salt
3 ¾ cup all-purpose flour
For The Cinnamon Sugar:
1½ cups Splenda Sugar Blend
½ cup ground cinnamon
Part 1: Making the donut dough
In a mixer, cream the butter and sugar together, on medium high speed for approximately 5 minutes.
Add eggs one at a time until combined. Slowly pour in the milk and half of the Sparkling Ice to the mixing bowl.
With the mixer on slow speed add the flour, baking soda, baking powder, and salt until just combined. The dough should look shaggy.
Slowly pour in the remaining amount of Sparkling Ice on medium speed for 2 minutes.
Part 2: Dough storage
Tear 2 pieces of parchment paper the size of a baking sheet.
Line the first piece of parchment on a clean baking sheet and heavily dust with flour.
Turn out the dough onto the floured parchment and press evenly till its about 3/4 inch thick. (If the dough seems too sticky flour your hands before pressing.)
Lightly flour the top of the dough and place the second piece of parchment over the dough. Refrigerate for 3 hours or overnight.
Part 3: Frying donuts
In a deep frying pan, heat enough oil to come up 2 inches from the bottom to 375 degrees using a candy thermometer.
Gently peel the top piece of parchment off the dough.
Using a floured donut cutter, punch out dough and place in hot oil.
Fry on each side for 2-3 minutes or until light brown. Adjust the heat if needed. Scoop on paper towel lined baking tray.
Part 4: Finishing donuts
Combine cinnamon and Splenda in a large bowl.
While the donuts are still warm, toss with cinnamon and Splenda mixture until evenly coated.
