My Favorite Winter Splurge

 I have been using Torani for sometime to perk my 'ol cup o' joe up in the mornings.  They have an amazing variety online, but I have found that the selection is limited in most box stores. I find the best in-store varieties to be at World Market.

I usually use the sugar free syrups since they are made with safe sugar alcohols.  I am not saying I would pour these on anything and everything or turn up and drink a whole bottle, but I do find the ingredients to be much safer/healthier than most flavoring additives and knowing they are aspartame free is nice and comforting while sipping on my fantastically frothy latte on a cold morning.

Let me just say I saw the pumpkin pie in World Market and already have tried it....but I ran out-QUICKLY. IT WAS DELICIOUS!!! 

Here is a review of my favorite flavor:

Pumpkin Pie (sugar free)

  • fabulous
  • should be offered year round (maybe it already is)
  • really, really, really tasty
  • I think my coffee NEEDS this.
  • It isn't overwhelmingly pumpkin or spice but just perfect and I love that you can add a little or a lot to match your mood!

Nice warm pumpkin pie latte!!
A delicious iced sugar free pumpkin pie latte (45 calories!!!!)

Favorite recipes I use with various flavors ranging from savory to sweet to fruity
  • Latte
    • 1 shot espresso, 6 oz Silk unsweetened almond milk (heated), and 4-5 pumps of syrup...delish
  • Iced Latte
    • 1 shot espresso (chilled), 3-4 ice cubes, 5-6 oz Silk unsweetened almond milk, and 6 pumps of syrup, sometimes I delight in adding Reddi Whip fat free on top
  • Milkshake
    • 8 oz Turkey Hill 90 calorie Vanilla Bean frozen yogurt, 2 oz FF milk (or Silk almond), 5 pumps of syrup-blend well
  • Italian Sodas
    • 6-8 oz chilled sparkling water and 3-4 pumps syrup
    • My daughter loves these once some of the carbonation fades
  • Flavored Tea
    • hot tea or cold tea with a few pumps of syrup
  • As a syrup/topping for...
    • ice cream
    • fruit cobblers
    • pancakes/waffles
