Last night I made a pecan treat and I do mean treat... SO easy so good...

About a cup Pecans ( you can use walnuts too)
2 Tbsp butter
Cinnamon to taste
2 Tbsp Toasted Marshmallow DaVinci Syrup.

Coat the nuts with mixture. Bake in the oven 350 for about ten minutes.

Taste so good out of the oven with a cup of coffee. Makes me think I'm eating a cinnamon bun. The bad thing is, I ate half of the cup and DW ate the other half...

I'm thinking of making another batch tonight but this time only half a cup

If you are feeling really frisky, sprinkle your serving with sugar free chocolate chips. Oh, I am drooling. Please excuse me I have all the ingredients and must go make this now.

sounds YUMMY! can't wait to try this one!

Can someone tell me if the "holiday" flavors are around all year, or will they disappear until next season? (things like eggnog, etc.)

I believe they are available all year long. I've bought them "out of season". Particular retailers might not chose to stock them year round, but you can order them from Netrition or the maker year round.

Never looked on this thread but I am missing out! I have a boatload of different flavors and don't use them much. Here is a simple one I made up on my own, sort of similar to dogman's. I was going to use the almonds for coconut cookies but they seem to be disappearing little by little,




I used a splash of chocolate and vanilla syrup to moisten roasted almonds (already roasted from Trader Joe's) and then sprinkled cocoa powder on them, mixed them well to coat. Spray pan with PAM. Baked at 375 for 10 minutes. Stir after 5.

Let cool. Will be soft when they first come out and did not taste that great. Put into container with lid open to cool completely, then cover. Once they have cooled and are not soft, THEN they are really good! Could easily change the syrup flavors and spices around.

I don't know where it was, but someone on a different thread mentioned that they used some purchased cocoa almonds in a recipe for coconut cookies. I asked about them and I thought I'm sure they have other stuff in them that was not good for me, like sugar perhaps. So it seemed easy enough and since I have never had the purchased cocoa almonds I don't have anything to compare these to. They still taste very good a week or more after making them. And I like the fact that you can eat just a few and they leave a very nice flavor in your mouth.

I love Starbucks' Coconut Cream Frappuccino but it's way too high in carbs, so I invented my own alternative. Unsweetened Silk soy milk (in the green carton), scoop of vanilla protein powder, couple pumps of DaVinci sugar free coconut syrup poured over shaved ice and blended altogether in a Magic Bullet. Of course, if coconut's not your thing, you could substitute any one of the dozens of flavors DaVinci has to offer.

Right now I'm using Smart Sense, but I bounce around to different brands whenever there's a good sale. They sell this brand at Kmart. The sugar-free DaVinci syrups are amazing and they have a large selection of flavors so there's bound to be something for everyone. Plus, they have a 2-year shelf life even after being opened AND they don't need refrigeration, with the one exception of the pancake flavor.

Sugar Free Syrups:

Almond Sugar Free Syrup
Amaretto Sugar Free Syrup
B-52 Sugar Free Syrup
Banana Sugar Free Syrup
Blueberry Sugar Free Syrup
Butter Rum Sugar Free Syrup
Butterscotch Sugar Free Syrup
Caramel Sugar Free Syrup

I get the protein powder at Kmart but I have to order the DaVinci syrup online because they don't sell it in my immediate area. DaVinci has their own website and you can always order it there, but I get mine through Netrition because DaVinci doesn't take Discover and Netrition does. Here's the link:

I am reading sugarfreesheila's Atkins/Low carb dessert book I bought a while ago off of her website. I see lots of uses in baked goods,flavored cheesecakes, cookies,pies, protein shakes, etc.using Da Vinci syrups. In fact before I read this I went to order a bunch of new flavors but didn't go through with the order yet as kind of got carried away...so many delicious sounding flavors!

I love her website I agree with you....I can get carried away with the flavors too. There are so many great sounding ones that it is very hard to decide what to choose first

Just discovered this neat thread.

First for Dogman congrats on the great A1c test!!

I also rely on Dr. Bernstein for my diabetes.

Have had the recipe book from him and also the "Big Book"

Glad to have this thread for ideas about the syrups.

I add the French Vanilla Torani when making my own

creamer. It's delish without the chemicals and carbs.

Just got my mango syrup too, OMG it is fabulous! I made mango lemonade with it and mango chicken for dinner. That mango sauce needs some tweaking but it was still good. Monin is my preferred syrup. Ooh I think tomorrow I'm going to make shrimp fajitas with mango salsa!

Not sure where I got this BUT. Mix 1cup heavy cream and 1cup SF syrup. Pour into Popsicle mold and freeze...the best creamsicle you ever had. I have used and loved: Monin Blackberry and Monin Strawberry so far.

Would you mind sharing your mango sauce? That sounds wonderful especially for summer grilling!

Ladeeda, I tried your popsicle recipe yesterday with cream and Momim peach syrup. It was great. I like to let it thaw for a minute or two before I eat it. I got 5 popsicles out of half the recipe, so the calorie count isn't bad at all. DH loves them too.

I use this stuff in everything. Works well as a substitute in recipes for honey or agave nectar.

Do you prefer Davinci's or torani's syrups? I just ordered the Davinci's sugar free caramel and strawberry syrups. I think I got the dulche one too. I have a vanilla protein shake when I wake up (only 90 cal no sugar or carbs!) and wanted to flavor it up
