I really love extracts and we have many.  You can find butter flavoring, vanilla, maple, almond, lemon, strawberry, banana, coconut, anise, orange, peppermint, and even chocolate!  It’s a great way to flavor up foods without adding calories, fat, or sugar.

What do you like to use extracts for?


Looks great if I sub’d in coconut milk for the yogurt – maybe a spoonful of Almond Butter, too. Love maple flavor!


I have looked for maple extract before and never find it. where do you get it and could I use a few drops of pure maple syrup as a substitute?
