Hi all. So I'm looking for more snack, desert & breakfast ideas, and I want to make smoothies with ice, plain yogurt, and sugar-free syrup. I have sugar-free maple syrup for mock pancakes (yummy!), but I cannot find any other flavors. I shop at Ralphs, where I have looked around, but I also frequent Whole Foods and Trader Joes a lot. Does anyone know where I can find an array of sugar-free syrups? Thanks in advance!:carrot:

Usually they have these in the coffee section, where I shop.

You can get them at Beverages and More stores, too - tons of flavors of sugar free Torani!

hmmm I might test out one of those smoothies, seems kind of interesting, how much yogurt and syrup do you use?

Jenny G: I haven't made them yet, but for one serving, I was thinking about 6 ice cubes, 1/2 cup of plain yogurt, and a couple of tablespoons of syrup.

Mandalinn: Thank you so much! I'll check that out. And just so you know, you have been such an inspiration to me the last few months!

You could also try these unsweetened flavor drops (http://capellaflavordrops.com/index.asp) with your own sugar alternative (stevia, splenda, nothing, etc.)

OMG, thank you snapless! I use stevia in my teas, so I already have some! I'll look into that!
