Skinny Simple Syrup

Everyone loves a good mixed drink but none of us love the calories it comes with. Simple syrup is an easy way to make your waistband expand, so I’ve been using a skinny version that I have used over the years and recently perfected with my use of Young Living Essential Oils Orange Oil (Here’s a link to save 24% on oils; post on how Young Living changed my life coming soon!).  This simple syrup can be refrigerated after cooled to use other times as well. I do a few different versions of this, including a blueberry simple syrup for my blueberry margarita that’s to die for! Check out this lovely recipe and let me know what you think!

Skinny Simple Syrup

1 cup water

1 cup Splenda/Truvia or any other zero calorie powdered sugar substitute

1-3 drops of Orange Young Living Essential Oil (click the link to get them at a 24% discount as a wholesaler! If you don’t have this and are making my Skinny Margarita, add some fresh squeezed orange juice to margarita)

  • Take pot and pour water into pot. Place on stove and bring to a rolling boil
  • Add sugar substitute slowly to the pot stirring to dissolve until you have poured all the sugar in.
  • Remove from heat and let it cool.

Bet you didn’t think it was that easy did you? Takes no more than about 5-10 minutes to do and once it’s cooled you can use it in recipes like my Perfect Skinny Mango Margarita recipe and other that are soon to come on the blog!
