Homemade Fruit Syrup
Have you ever made your own syrup? It's so easy. I have been making syrup since I was a kid. That's just how Mom taught me. These syrups are gluten free which is great for my kids with allergies. All the kids love our syrup.
1 part sugar, 2parts water
For example 1 cup of sugar and 2 cups of water.
1 cup Fruit - fresh or frozen
My favorites are raspberry, strawberry, or blueberry. Just put the fruit in and let it simmer till the fruit is soft and mush.
Use the same recipe above. When the fruit is nice and mush strain through a small mesh strainer.
Leftover Fruit Pulp
The leftover fruit from the strained syrup is great for putting in plain yogurts. The kids love it.
Make a Latte
Like most of us, I love my Lattes. As a stay at home mom that's busy homeschooling, I can't just run to the latte stand (or afford to). This recipe makes a great cup of coffee.
1 Cup of Coffee
1/2 Cup of Warm Milk
3 TBSP of Syrup
