I bought a bottle of that Torani Sugar Free Syrup -- the vanilla kind -- for
one of your recipes: the Cravin' Cap'n Crunch Shake. The shake was
awesome, but what else can I do with the syrup?
Seeking Syrup Suggestions
Mmmmm, I love that shake! There are LOTS of things you can do with that
SF vanilla syrup. (For those who don't know, it's an amazing product with
zero calories per serving that can be bought online and found at select
stores.) It's a fantastic ingredient for cocktails, coffee drinks, and more. Here
are some of my favorite things to make with it:
1. Cocktails. For the 21+ HGers... Add some to mixed drinks of all kinds for
sweet vanilla flavor. Try it in our Orange Creamsicle Martini and Kickin' Key
Lime Pie Martini. (And if you own the first HG cookbook, check out the
Wicked Good White Russian on page 251.)
2. Blended Beverages. It's good in fruit smoothies, milkshakes, and frozen
coffee-shop swaps. If you don't feel like experimenting, whip up our
Vanillalicious Cafe Freeze, Green Tea Crème Swappuccino, and Freakishly
Good Frozen Hot Chocolate. And if you've got a copy of 200 Under 200,
check out the Key Lime Pie Shake and the Vanilla-Thrilla Coffee Float.
3. Hot Drinks. Add a splash to some low-cal hot chocolate (made with a 25-
calorie hot cocoa packet, like the kind by Swiss Miss), your morning cup of
coffee, or even your hot tea -- it's great with chai, too.
4. Breakfast Foods & Creamy Snacks. You can cook with it! Add a little to
your Egg Beaters before making French toast, and you'll have a vanilla-
infused breakfast. Yum! Stir some into yogurt, cottage cheese, and even
oatmeal -- it'll add sweetness and flavor. You can even drizzle a small
amount over fruit or ice cream. Get creative...
By the way, if you're looking for things to do with the rest of that Cap'n
Crunch cereal, make some Planet Hungrywood Sweet & Cap'n Crunchy
Chicken. SOOO GOOOD!!!
Hi, Hungry Girl!
So, I'm a hungry mom who LOVES your recipes. But I usually don't have
