Untapped Maple Syrup

It has happened…for the first time ever…I have won something! I won a box of Untapped Maple Syrup and holy wow you guys, this stuff is liquid gold.

Untapped Slopeside Syrup is pure, USDA Organic, Grade A, Vermont maple syrup. Who knew sap from a tree could be so delicious and good for you! Maple syrup naturally contains over 50+ different kinds of antioxidants; putting it in the same beneficial class of antioxidant as berries, tea, and red wine. It also contains high levels of zinc and magnesium which are essential for heart health and a strong immune system. Needless to say, it’s about time you start to incorporate this delicious golden nectar into your diet. Here is how I’ve been using it:

Diabetic Lows

If you’re a diabetic or have hypoglycemia, you know that there really isn’t a healthy way to treat lows. Your options are glucose tablets, candy, juice, cereal, or really anything loaded with carbohydrates.  Not only are most of these options unhealthy, but they also don’t travel/keep well. That’s why Untapped Slopeside Syrup is so amazing. It is very temperature stable, which means you can store it in your purse, at work, and in your car (year round) without having to worry about it freezing or melting and it comes in the most perfect size packaging and serving size.

Replacing Sugar in Coffee.

I haven’t drank coffee or anything with caffeine in it since college, but Hubby loves his morning coffee, and when we were out for breakfast last weekend the waitress suggested that he sweeten his coffee with maple syrup. The taste of the maple syrup sweetened coffee was amazing. I had a sip of his coffee to see and wow! It was good. And it’s so much better for you than regular refined sugar and artificial sweeteners because it’s super natural… it’s sap from a tree! Plus all those benefits I listed above.

Replacing Brown Sugar in Oatmeal.

I used to sweeten my oatmeal with brown sugar because I thought it was better for me than maple syrup. I had this idea in my head that maple syrup was junk food but some how brown sugar wasn’t. Since learning about all the benefits of maple syrup I decided to make the switch and now sweeten my oatmeal with maple syrup instead of brown sugar.

Other Uses.

Maple syrup can be used to replace regular sugar almost everywhere. To replace regular sugar with maple syrup in cooking, use ¾ cup of maple syrup for every one cup of sugar. For baking, there is no conversion…just use the same amount that is asked for, but be sure to reduce the amount of overall liquid in the recipe by about three tablespoons for each cup of liquid. So next time you make tea, coffee, or banana bread, try using maple syrup instead of regular table sugar.
