Salted caramel sounds awesome!! Is it Torani? I wonder if my World Market would be carrying that one? I am thinking you have used it in coffee? I think it would make hot chocolate much, much better!! We had the salted caramel hot chocolate at Starbucks this winter and many went gaga over that one--including me I am just now learning of this lemon flavor. That sounds great too--kind of like lemonade I am sure.

also, the torani lemon and strawberry together make an excellent strawberry lemonade!
Add extra lemon juice to increase the tartness.

I like a tsp. of the hazelnut in my one cup of morning coffee, along with my 2T. coconut oil and 1T. cream. I think of it as "medicine", as I'm taking the CO for a variety of health benefits and preventative health measures.

But both brands of hazelnut are good IMO.

Hi! Newbie here.
I've got DaVinci's Kahlua, Dulce de Leche, Creme de Menthe, B-52 (which is AMAZING, btw) and the Chai Tea flavor. I make the best lattes-- no guilt and a fraction of the cost of the coffee-shop variety.

B-52 is a blend of Kahlua, Irish Cream, and a hint of Grand Marnier. I always feel like I'm cheating when I put that it my coffee-- It's so decadent!

I have raspberry that I picked up at Sam's Club, now I have no idea what to do with it.

I tried it in cream cheese muffins but didn't like that at all. I don't drink coffee or tea.

I haven't tried the syrups but I did try the chia tea concentrate. I kind of wish hadn't because it was so good I think I could get hooked on it like I was on Diet Coke. I think
Dr. Bernstene recomended the cockie dough ice cream flavor mixed with heavy cream
to make ice cream.

I make my Muesli cereal . Almond syrup about a tbsp, cream,crushed pecans about a small handful, flax-meal about a tbsp. Micro wave for about a minute but watch it so it doesn't boil over. Many times I add some blueberries before microwaving. I love it!
Also, the raspberry flavor in fantastic in the plain yogurt add some coconut flakes, delish .The yogurt is a local brand called Narragansett from Providence RI. It's the lowest carb yogurt I've ever found...

Hey dawnyama, I see you made it to the Recipe Department

Oh Wow!! I went out to World Market yesterday and scored big time on the Torani syrups. I got the last of the Pumpkin pie syrup (sugar free of course!) as well as the Brown sugar cinnamon and the Salted Caramel syrups!!! I cannot wait to try the new ones. I have Pumpkin from last year I have not finished, but wanted the last one of that in case I cannot get back there this season. Yummmmm!!!

The ones used for flavoring are not thick. Not sure about other syrups they may make.

They are one in the same. The Davinci syrups for coffee are thin, not thick.

Walmart finally has the Torani Chocolate one! It's a smaller bottle and they also have a Cinnamon as well. I was thrilled to see them in my local store!

Make sure it says sugar free. They mix those bottles right in with the regular flavored ones!

It should come out yummy! I make it that way sometimes! Got the little single serving ice cream makers. The carbs and cal.s start adding up though, so this is a once in a while treat!

I like making cookies with the caramel syrup.

Ingredients:
Flax Seed Powder - 3 tablespoon
Cocoa powder - 1 tablespoon
Da Vinci Syrup (Caramel or your favourite one) - 2 - 3 tablespoon
salt - 1/2 teaspoon
Baking Powder - 1 teaspoon
Cinnamon - as you like it
Peanut butter - 1 tablespoon

Mix all dry ingredients, then slowly add the

Da Vinci sugar free syrup to the mix. Roll it up in a ball, then place it on a microwavable plate. Put peanut butter in the middle and roll it in the cookie batter. Heat in the microwave for about one minute.

Da Vinci sugar free has been my staple since I became a type 2 diabetic. Unfortunately my bf doesn't like my cookies too much but I think it's tasty

I also put the sugar into my low carb muffins!

Pineapple Coleslaw

This tasts just like the old (full of carbs) coleslaw with crushed pineapple that my DH and I love.

Chopped cabbage
Mayonnaise
daVince Pineapple SF syrup

I don't have measurements bcause I just throw it together, but perhaps to two cups slaw + two large spoonfulls of mayo + 4-6 pumps (that might be about 1/4 cup.

I found that my DH only likes the slaw when it is very sweet - and the pineapple flavor is quite apparent. I like it a bit less sweet, and when making it for myself, will put a few drops of vinnegar to make it sweet-tart.

Raspberry Delight!

I found in one of the HOMESENSE store a raspberry da vinci syrup!
I put it in a glass full of ice, and filled it up with diet 7 up. OMG what delight!

I was tempted to put vodka in...but it's still a weekday so I resisted lol!

I like making a quick,easy and tasty treat. Take about two cubic inches of cream cheese and add some toasted marshmallow DaVinci syrup, sometimes a little shredded coconut flakes mix it into a thick paste.It's also good in an avocado half.Toasted marshmallow is good in coffee too. I recently bought Dr. Richard K. Bernstein's new book "Diabetes Solution" and got the idea for there...
