Thick, sweet and syrupy, this is oh so good

just like the store-bought syrups but without all the artificial ingredients.

Instead of sweetening this syrup with high fructose corn syrup, bleached white sugar, artificial sweeteners and aspartame, I used all-natural stevia.

Instead of using citric acid I used organic lemon flavoring for a bit of tartness and to lighten up the blueberry flavor.

Instead of potassium sorbate and sodium benzoate (preservatives) that are typically added to store-bought syrups, I used…  no preservatives!

And instead of artificial food dyes (that are linked to hyperactivity, ADHD, tumors, cancer, and so on) I used all natural, plant-based food coloring.

All of these ingredient replacements are just so you can feel good about pouring this into your pie hole drizzling this over your meal of choice…  aka, dessert.

DUH.
