HEALTHY HOMEMADE SUGAR FREE MAPLE SYRUP
prep time: 5 MINUTES
cook time: 0 MINUTES
total time: 5 MINUTES
- 3 cups Water
- 2 tbs Natural Maple Flavor
- **1¾ tsp of Vanilla Creme-Flavored Stevia Extract
- 1 tsp Xanthan Gum⅛ tsp Salt
In a large blender (I used my Vitamix), add the water, maple flavor, and stevia. Blend on low speed.While the blender is running, remove the lid and slowly add the xanthan gum and salt. Once everything is incorporated and completely smooth, pour into pretty serving jars, tightly seal, and refrigerate overnight. Ready to use the next day! Refrigerate to store, and shake before using.
**I’ve made this recipe for YEARS with mixed results, because it really all comes down to the maple flavoring. I used to use Frontier, but it seems like they altered their recipe because their current maple flavor tastes NOTHING like maple. Now I use Olive Nation. So beware, if your bottle doesn’t smell like real deal maple syrup, then this syrup sure won’t TASTE like maple syrup. Smell your maple flavoring before you use it (take it from me)! If you find another brand you like, be sure to let me know! I’m disappointed in Frontier’s new recipe 🙁
