I was sent out a bag of the Splenda Sugar Blend to make a pomegranate spritzer. Splenda Sugar Blend is great for baking because you get the perfect consistency without the added calories. But did you know it’s also great for making simple syrup?
Simple syrup is great because you can add it to your drinks for sweetness without a grainy texture at the bottom of the glass.
Here is the recipe for a Splenda Sugar Blend simple syrup. Take note that this can last up to a week in the refrigerator.
2 cups of water
1 cup of Splenda Sugar Blend
1/4 teaspoon of dry unflavored gelatin
1/8 teaspoon of vanilla extract
Simmer all of the ingredients in a sauce pan until it becomes a slightly thick syrup. Let cool then refrigerate it in a tightly sealed container.
Now it’s time for the pomegranate spritzer!
1/4 cup pomegranate juice
2 tablespoons of the simple syrup you made
1 teaspoon lime juice
3/4 flavored seltzer (I used tonic water)
Ice, if desired.
Put all of your ingredients accept the seltzer into a glass. Then pour in your seltzer slowly. Add ice if desired.
Thank you Splenda and Crowdtap for sending me this product and recipe.
The drink was refreshing and not too sweet. I hope you all make it before the end of the summer.
