Syrup- Made with Fruit Juice


Juice Week!!

This syrup is so delicious I couldn’t wait to share it!  I used an bottle of a strawberry/ banana fruit juice blend that was in my pantry.

I made my kids pancakes this morning, using my Master Pancake homemade mix.

Then I made the syrup using

  • 2 cups juice (I used the strawberry banana blend)
  • 2 TBL corn starch (mixed with a little cold water so it would dissolve.

On the stove top, I stirred the juice and corn starch together on medium heat for about 8 minutes, turned the heat off and let it sit for a few extra minutes.  When used the morning of making it, its PERFECT.  If let to sit, it tends to get a little gelatany, but can be warmed up and shaken to get it a little more syrupy.

I LOVE syrup made from juice.  Unless you want to fork out tons of money at the grocery store for a sugar free, HFCS free variety, its an economical way to get your kids to love some whole grain pancakes, french toast, or waffles.  Its like topping your pancakes with berries, only not because some kids rather have syrup!

This syrup looks amazing and I cant wait to try it. Right now fruit syrups are big in my house (the kind you buy premade at the store) but we all know how much sugar are in those things!

Now I’ve found nirvana for sure. I hate store syrups because they are so full of sugar, so instead I put sliced berries, bananas, whatever on my pancakes. This looks like a great solution. Leave it to you to figure it out for us! Thanks, Amy!

By fruit pouches, do you mean capri suns? Or am I missing out on some other form of juice?

Thanks for all the great juice ideas, we are not juice drinkers but I’ll be adding it (the sugar/HFCS free kind, that is) to my shopping list more often.

Yes, Capri Sun has the 100% juices at Costco, 40 pouches for $10. When I have to do Soccer treats, I always get those.

Or Juicy Juice has the boxes of course, and they are 100% juice too.

I’ll have to try that. I don’t like pancake syrup so I usually use maple syrup. My favorite though is waffles with strawberries and whipped cream. This sounds like it would taste similar but be a little more healthy if I leave off the whipped cream! 🙂

Eating healthy and deliciously need not be mutually exclusive. Vegetables have a lot of inert flavor in them that you can let out if you cook them right. That said, there are lots of ways to cook veggies deliciously! Try the vegetable recipes at tanya’s site, I liked them!

The theory is that when you remember what you had for lunch,
it might remind you of how satiating the food was, which then makes you less likely
to binge on your afternoon snack. Cheats to get mew in
