Question@2x Dear Hungry Girl,

What companies make sugar-free maple syrup? I cannot find it anywhere!

In Search of Syrup
Answer@2x Dear In Search,

Your search is OVER! Sooooo many companies make sugar-free maple syrup. Typically it sits right next to all the other syrups, but if you don't see it there, check the diet aisle or wherever the diabetic-friendly foods are stocked. Here are a few SF maple syrups that I love...

Cary's - AWESOME stuff with only 30 calories in each 1/4-cup serving.

Joseph's - An excellent choice and just 35 calories per 1/4 cup.

Mrs. Butterworth's - GREAT, GREAT! And hers clocks in at 35 calories per 1/4 cup.

Log Cabin - Another delicious option that has only 35 calories per 1/4-cup serving.

A lot of people like Smucker's Sugar Free Breakfast Syrup, which has just 20 calories per 1/4 cup. I personally like the others better. BTW, when seeking out diet-friendly syrups, I recommend that you go for sugar-free ones that have between 30 and 35 calories per serving -- you get a nice size serving for a POINTS® value of 1. There are light (or lite, as they're sometimes called) ones that taste good but have about THREE TIMES as many calories. Then there are the SUPER-DUPER-LOW-CALORIE ones that have 0 - 15 calories per serving -- I'm not a fan of those at all. And if you need some delicious guilt-free recipes to go with all that syrup, click here for our blueberry pancakes, here for our cheese blintzes, and here for our loaded waffles. Happy syruping!!!

Chew on this:

Tomorrow, December 13th, is National Cocoa Day. Traditional unsweetened cocoa is typically low in calories and can add lots of chocolatey flavor to your recipes. We're telling you about this today so you have time to stock up on the stuff!
