Syrups around our house are normally fruit based, my husband doesn’t like maple anything… So in an effort to keep myself on plan with Trim Healthy Mama and to help lower his sugar intake I make this Sugar Free Blueberry Syrup to top our pancakes and use in other recipes.
This is a simple syrup that can be made in whatever flavor combinations you desire, I’ve made it in these flavors :
Lemon: replace blue berries with lemon juice
Other berries: substitute whatever berry you have for the blueberries
Peach: use peaches instead of berries
Pineapple: Use 1/2 cup drained or fresh pineapple chunks, reduce sweetener to 2 tsp
Butter Pecan: 1 TBS butter, 1 TBS toasted pecans, replace water with almond milk.
Banana Walnut: 1 tsp banana extract, 1 TBS Toasted walnuts, replace water with almond milk.
and the list goes on… Let me know what flavor you try in the comments !!
Many times when I’m making Ice creams in my 1.5 qt. Automatic Frozen Yogurt-Ice Cream and Sorbet Maker in White
, I swirl these syrups into the Cottage Style Vanilla Ice Cream or Sugar Free Cheesecake Frozen Custard. I also use them with muffin in a mugs, yogurt swirls and with cakes and cupcakes.
Sometimes the simplest of recipes become the most versatile. It takes a few minutes to make this Sugar Free Blueberry Syrup and it keeps for about 2 weeks in the fridge (if it lasts that long).
I did start using the new THM Gentle Sweet in this which is really nice because the xylitol acts a lot like normal sugar. Just be REALLY careful with anything containing xylitol if you have household pets because it is toxic to them even in small amounts.
