The Perfect Sweet Drink or Dessert Has to Be Full of Sugar, Right? Absolutely Not!

We all love a nice, sugary beverage from time to time, it takes us back to our childhood days. It reminds us of simpler times when Kool-Aid was king and frozen Icee’s were a treat. 

In the summertime, a big glass of lemonade is sure to tingle the taste buds. 

During the winter months, many of us enjoy a hot mug of mulled apple cider. 

While these drinks are traditionally made with high amounts of sugar, they certainly do not have to be!

CEO of Jordans Mixes, Jordan Englehardt, has changed the landscape of refreshing drinks forever. In 2009, she started Jordan’s Skinny Mixes in her mother’s kitchen. Her goal was to create products that would allow the average consumer to make delicious beverages at home, without large amounts of calories and sugar!

When asked about her favorite recipes, Jordan Englehardt was more than happy to share with Food & Beverage Magazine. Here are a few of her current favorites, using Jordan’s Skinny Syrups. 

Zero Sugar-Added Blueberry Pie

INGREDIENTS

  • 7 cups of blueberries (about 36 ounces)
  • 3 tablespoons of cornstarch
  • 2 teaspoons of finely grated lemon zest
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons of ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon of salt
  • 1 tablespoon of Cinnamon Vanilla Syrup
  • 1 large egg
  • Sugar-free Pie Crust (store-bought or homemade)
  • 1-2 tablespoons of Simple Syrup 

DIRECTIONS

  • Prepare for the exquisite taste of fresh blueberry pie by preheating your oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit. 
  • Add four cups of blueberries to a saucepan over medium heat. Using a potato masher, occasionally smash the blueberries until they have been reduced and broken down. The reduction will take about 15 to 20 minutes. Let the mixture cool.
  • Add the remaining uncooked blueberries to a bowl with Cinnamon Vanilla Syrup, Simple Syrup, corn starch, lemon zest, cinnamon, and salt. Add the cooled cooked blueberries to the bowl and mix thoroughly. Transfer the blueberry mixture to your pie crust and spread it evenly.
  • Whisk together an egg with one tablespoon of water to make an egg wash. Brush the egg wash on the pie crust edges and cutouts. 
  • Place your completed pie on a baking sheet and bake for 25 minutes. 
  • Turn down the heat from 400 degrees Fahrenheit to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Leave your pie in the oven until the crust has turned golden brown and most of the blueberry liquid has evaporated. The reduction will take around 15 minutes. 
  • Remove from the oven and let your pie cool and set. Slice and serve your Zero-Sugar Added Blueberry Pie! 

Salted Caramel Espresso Martini

 

INGREDIENTS

  • Salted Caramel Flavor Burst
  • 2 ounces vodka
  • 1.25 ounces espresso (chilled)
  • ice (to serve) 

DIRECTIONS

  • Combine vodka, 1-2 squirts of Salted Caramel Flavor Burst, chilled espresso, and plenty of ice into a martini glass. Cover and shake vigorously. Strain into a martini glass & enjoy!
