Healthy Homemade Vanilla Bean Syrup
This Healthy Homemade Sugar-Free Vanilla Bean Syrup has all the flavor of real vanilla beans but without the high fructose corn syrup, granulated sugar, artificial food flavorings and preservatives… just pure vanilla goodness!
This all-natural, low-calorie Vanilla Syrup is incredibly versatile.
Swirl it into plain yogurt to give it some oomph.
Drizzle it over boring oatmeal to make it less… boring. 😉
Add it to smoothies, milkshakes, frostings and more!
Don’t you just love seeing all those tiny black speckles? It’s like a sweet tooth’s “caviar”
This Sugar-Free Vanilla Bean Syrup is just as sweet and comforting as regular storebought vanilla syrup, but without the calories, sugar-rush and sugar-crash.
This syrup is sweetened with all-natural stevia rather than high fructose corn syrup, granulated white sugar, sucralose or aspartame, so you can feel good about making (and serving) this. Try finding a storebought version without corn syrup or sugar as its primary ingredients!
Healthy Sugar-Free Vanilla Bean Syrup
- Add all of the ingredients to a blender and puree until smooth and even. Give it a taste and add more stevia if you like.
- Pour into serving bottles and refrigerate to store.
As a comparison, here is the nutrition label for Torani’s Vanilla Syrup.
Compared to Torani, my Sugar-Free Vanilla Bean Syrup has a fraction of the calories and carbs, with none of the sugar. But the goodness doesn’t end just there! My recipe doesn’t contain any sodium benzoate or potassium sorbate (preservatives) either… most of Torani’s syrups do, unfortunately.
To use this syrup in coffee, add the syrup to your cup/mug/glass first and then whisk in a splash of coffee. Once it’s thoroughly mixed in, stir in the rest of your coffee. For me, the sequence goes:
- Add a little syrup (about 2-3 tablespoons) along with some Truvia
- Add a little bit of coffee
- Pour in the rest of my coffee (like, a gallon of it, since I’m a caffeine addict, mwahaha)
- Then stir in unsweetened vanilla almond milk
Surely not as sinful as it looks and tastes!
Mmmm… vanilla-flavored coffee here I come! 🙂
With love and good eats,
