Smoothie Recipes
Re: Last year you posted a site that had low carb and low calorie syrups.  I can't find the name of the site but could you post the name of the site and the syrups you said like the best for smoothies.  Also how much of the syrup do you use in smoothies.

I like the syrups from NaturesFlavors.  They are so good in smoothies.  The Low Carb Syrups (Zero Calories and Zero Carbs) I like the best are Peach Low Carb Syrup, Orange Low Carb Syrup, Maraschino Cherry Syrup Strawberrry Low Carb Syrup, Raspberry Low Carb Syrup. I loved the Banana Low Carb Syrup and mixed it with the others.  The banana syrup was stronger than the others and a little bit would go a long way.

I love to make smoothies with these syrups and use 1/4 cup syrup, 1/4 cup water and 5 or 6 ice cubes and blend them together.  If I added banana flavoring I would add a teaspoon to the smoothie before mixing.  If you are on a low carb diet it added a bit more to the smoothie by adding a tablespoon of cream. The smoothie would be zero calories and zero carbs and would take away the need to eat something sweet.

I have tried a lot of low calorie and low carb syrups but in my opinion the Naturesflavors had the best flavor than the others.

If you are on a low carb diet you can add a tablespoon of cream to the smoothie before blending. It made it taste almost like a milkshake.  Cream was really great with the peach flavor. My next door neighbors in Canyon would come over and we would play games and make smoothies. They liked the cream with the raspberry  and the strawberrry the best.
