29 Jun HOMEMADE FRUIT SYRUP
Today I’ve made one of the most delicious syrups you can ever have, so I couldn’t help sharing it with all of you guys :) I think it’s one of the best natural sweeteners ever! and it actually works great to sweeten your breakfast porridge. If you are just starting eating in a more conscious and harmonious way you have probably introduced already whole grain porridge in the morning. Some people find it difficult to cut down on the typical toast with butter and jam…it is a matter of time, maybe you can start by having porridge 3 times a week and have bread the rest of the days…changes happen slowly and it is better to do them little by little rather than trying to eat super healthy from one day to another. Give yourself some time to adjust to new flavors and reflect on the changes you are making!
So this syrup is made to make your breakfast porridge taste like heaven. You gotta give it a try…I assure you won’t regret…
This time I’ve kept it in the fridge in a sealed jar without blending it. However, I generally process it and turn it into a creamy, delicious syrup, which I sometimes use to sweeten my favorite desserts. This compote is also GREAT as a little treat in the afternoon topped with some almond butter or hazelnut butter…YUM!
Raisins, apricots, prunes and dates are delicious dried fruits nature provides. I absolutely recommend to consume them, although my suggestion is to soak them first a little so that they don’t dry too much the body!
I hope you like the syrup, let me know in the comments below your experiment…. I love hearing from you!
