Ingredients

Preparation

  • Dissolve Splenda in water and allow to cool.
  • Strain through a coffee filter to remove sediment.
  • Use wherever a recipe calls for simple syrup.
  • NOTE: This recipe seems to work best with sucralose sweeteners.
  • I didn't have as much success with the Pink or Blue products.
  • Beyond the obvious differences in proportions, the other products didn't give me a syrup-like consistancy and the flavors weren't as "clean".
  • While I used Splenda, there are now generic or house brand sucralose sweeteners that work as well.
  • Don't, however, confuse *Splenda for Baking* with bulk Splenda.
  • The baking and brown sugar versions of the Splenda product are 50% sucrose (sugar).
  • I will have to assume that any generic and house brand baking products will be similar in content.
  • It's important to read the product lables to know what you're dealing with.
  • The version with maltodextrin and sucralose is what is called for in this recipe.
  • The versions that also contain sucrose aren't suitable for this particular purpose.
  • However, they are great for baking and other recipes that require some sugar to make the dish come out properly.
  • Each (1TBS, 13g) serving of the basic syrup has an estimated: 5 Cals, 1g of total carbs, 0.5g fiber (from the maltodextrin), 0.5g NetCarbs.
  • All other nutrients are zero.
  • VARIATIONS: You can flavor this syrup for other uses.
  • Ginger syrup: Simmer finely minced fresh ginger in syrup for about 40 minutes.
  • Strain and cool.
  • Orange (or Lemon) syrup: Add the zest of one orange (or large lemon) and about a tablespoon of juice to 1/2 cup of syrup and simmer for about 40 minutes.
  • Strain and cool.
  • Spice syrup: Stick cinnamon (crushed) simmered with a drop of red food coloring gives you a delightful cinnamon syrup.
  • Other sweet spices such as nutmeg, clove, or allspice will also yield interesting flavors.
  • Table syrup: Maple flavoring with a bit of real maple syrup isn't bad on waffles.
  • Adding 2 tablespoons to dark (blackstrap) molasses to about 1/2 cup of simple syrup isn't bad either if you like cane syrup on your hotcakes.
  • Chocolate syrup: Add cocoa and vanilla to taste.
  • Try this version with some added cinnamon for a Mexican chocolate version.

"I made this and added lavender to use in my Lady Grey tea. With a little sugar free vanilla creamer, it is awesome. Thank you"

"I added the cocoa & peppermint extract to it to use in my coffee. Tastes pretty good on it's own. Gonna try it out today and hope it's like a skinny peppermint mocha. :)"

"The funny thing, of course, is that this simple syrup is thinner, less syruppy than a simple syrup made with sugar. Which makes perfect sense, since ther is less sugar-like substance in it. Sucralose is much sweeter than sugar. To make 1 cup of sucralose have the same sweetening power as one cup of sugar, they somehow puff it up like ground-up styrofoam peanuts. If you cook it down until it *looks* like syrup, it will be very, very sweet. Yes, I did try this. For making home-made drinks, this isn't a problem."
