DaVinci Sugarfree Syrup Recipes

Recommended Posts

Bought my first bottles of DaVinci today at Super Walmart, I got SF Vanilla and SF Kahlua. Don't know if anyone has tried this before, but I put a little of the vanilla on my popcorn (I had the healthy choice kettle corn) and it was delicious! Made some of the pieces a little mushy, but then again, so does butter and this was much healthier :)

Hello Everyone,

 

I am going to search at Wal-Mart for DaVinci if I can't find it I may order it. I'm thinking of asking for a Sno Cone machine for my B-day. These recipes sound so good. I'm a bit confused I saw someone mention they were 0pts and some recipes had some points listed. Which ones are 0?

 

Thanks,

 

Nancy

 

P.S.

 

Gonna have to start not wearing my rings there getting so loose I'm afraid there gonna fall off. Yippee!!!

Nancy, I think the recipes that showed points had ingredients like milk or hot cocoa that have points. None of the sugar free syrups have points. There are Regular syrups that have sugar that would have points, but if you find the Sugar Free ones they have 0 calories, 0 fat, 0 fiber - 0 points.

OMG! I went to my local super wal-mart the other day and was getting some of my flavored coffee that I like from Milstone (I LOVE the carmel truffle!) and I look up on the top shelf and there it is! Davinci Syrups! They only had hazlenut and vanilla, so i picked up the vanilla just to see what the big deal was with this stuff.. You guys were right! They are fantasic! And so much cheaper than I had thought! I wish they carried more flavors though. I guess I'll have to just order it online.... I had some in my coffee this morning and didn't even need creamer! yummm!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! If anyone is thinking about getting this stuff, GET IT! It is great!

 

I also used it in a smoothie yesturday and it was the best and most filling lunch I had ever had! here is my recipe:

 

4 large strawberries (about a 3/4 - 1 cup)

1/2 cup Light orange juice (50 calories per 8oz kind)

1 small to medium frozen banana

1/4 cup skim milk

1 cup ice cubes

1 - 2 tbsp Davinci sugar free vanilla syrup

 

Blend all together for a GREAT 4 point HUGE smoothie! YUMMMMMM!!!!!!! It might be kind of thick for some people, so just add a little water and it will thin out.

I now have about 12 bottles. Chocolate, French Vanilla, Cherry, Rasberry, Chocolate, Almond, Coconut, Carmel, etc. I even have 4 bottles to leave in work for lunchtime & coffee/tea break. It will take me a while to use them all up.... So I sent an Email to Davinci.

 

They said the sugarfree last 2 years, opened or unopened. Problem is, no dates on them. I got some on sale so they have been around a while. I sent them another Email back (no anwer yet) to be sure they are safe after 2 years. They did say the thickness changes over time.

 

Has anyone out there seen any difference it older bottles :confused:.

 

I love this stuff in oatmeal, grits, coffee, tea, sodas, yogurt, puddings,etc.

 

Any new suggestions apprciated.

:o A repy from the source.............

:exercise: The syrups will just loose flavor after the 2 years. They are safe, but you would have to use more in your beverages to get any flavor. It may make your drinks too sweet. There should be an 8 digit code, stamped on the bottle itself, below the neck of the bottle. The first 3 digits of the code are the day it was crafted, and the 4th is the year. For example, 3654 would be December 31st, 2004. I hope this information helps. You can send me your codes, and I can let you know the dates if you are not sure. Please let me know if you have any other inquiries.

IT is DELISH!!! added some raisins the other day... and talk about a wonderful fulfilling breakfast and I didnt even miss the sugar..

I put all the recipes that I might make from this thread plus a few more together in a Word document and ended up with 7 pages of recipes, LOL. It's easier than scrolling through pages of posts though.

 

I'll add 2 recipes that come from the Hungry Girl Newsletter which has daily tips on tasty low-cal food products, among other things. I love Starbucks Frapuccinos but at 500 calories they kill in points so here are 2 very good low points versions of these drinks.

 

 

HERE COMES THE FUDGE - 3 points

Our super-chocolately Frozen Fudge Chip Freeze is phenomenal, not only because it has less than a third the calories and a quarter of the fat of Starbucks' Double Chocolate Chip Blended Frappuccino Creme, but because it actually tastes BETTER, too.

 

Ingredients:

1 packet fat free or diet hot chocolate mix, dissolved in 4 oz warm water

1 Tbsp sugar free chocolate syrup

2 oz. light vanilla soy milk

3 Splenda packets

1 Tbsp of mini chocolate chips

7-8 ice cubes

Fat Free Reddi-Wip

 

Directions:Place dissolved cocoa, chocolate syrup, Splenda, chips, soy milk and ice in a blender. Blend on high speed for 30-45 seconds. Pour into an attractive cup and top with a little Fat Free Reddi-Wip. Enjoy!

Serving Size: 12 oz Calories: 135 calories

 

A BERRY GOOD THING - copy of Starbucks' Strawberries & Creme Frappuccino Blended Crème - 2 points

Here's an amazing guilt-free swap you can make in your own home. Save time, money and calories with this awesome recipe!

 

Ingredients:

2/3 cup frozen strawberries (just plain- NOT in syrup!)

5 oz. light vanilla soy milk

2 tsp. Fat Free French Vanilla Coffee-mate powder (dissolved in an oz of warm water)

1 oz. Sugar Free Strawberry Syrup

3 Splenda packets

3 large ice cubes

Fat Free Reddi-Wip

 

Directions:

Place all of the ingredients in blender, except for the whipped cream. Blend on high speed for 30-45 seconds. Pour, and top with Fat Free Reddi-Wip. Strawberrylicious!

Serving Size: 12 oz. Calories:135; Fat:1g; Fiber: 2.5g. Starbucks version has 420 calories

 

 

Another good one:

 

 

100-Calorie Pina Colada Freeze!

1 1/2 oz. Bacardi Island Breeze Coconut

1 1/2 oz. Sugar Free Coconut Syrup

1/4 cup Breyer's Cal Smart Vanilla Ice Cream

1 Tbsp. crushed pineapple in its own juice

3/4 cup crushed ice

1 packet Splenda

Put all ingredients in a blender. Blend on high speed for 30 seconds. Pour. Then share this recipe with everyone you know!

*Each Pina Colada contains approximately 100 calories, 1.5g fat, 12g carbs, 2.5g fiber, 1.5g protein (1.5 - 2 points)

Don't drink alcohol? Can't drink alcohol? Try swapping the rum with an ounce of water and another 1/2 oz. of the coconut syrup, and you'll get a virgin version with only 52 calories!

I am new to BCB and have spent a lot of time reading the boards before signing on. My family has been using the sf syrups to make our own lattes for a while now. We thought we had hit the jackpot when we found all the SF Torina flavors at World Market. ( The only DV flavors we had found were vanilla and hazelnut at Wal-Mart. )

 

Well, thanks to all you BCBers we now have so many more options. I have been looking for sf cinnimon for awhile and followed your advice about on-line ordering. I was so EXCITED to find it!!!!!

 

Before I placed my order, I called my aunt to see if she wanted any new flavors.. . . .to make a long story short. . . our nine new bottles should be delivered tomorrow. We split each bottle 3 ways (myself, my aunt, my brother) so we can try more flavors and not worry about using a whole bottle up.

 

 

We can't wait!!!! I am also :jump_jack excited :jump_jack about branching out and using the syrups in more than just lattes and sodas.

 

Thanks for the great recipes and support.

THe first flavors I bought were Chocolate, white chocolate, caramel, toffee, raspberry ... then added vanilla, pineapple, cookie dough ...

 

I love them in coffee and hot cocoas ... i use them when i'm making oatmeal, i've put them in baked oatmeal and low pointed brownies. My absolute favorite thing to do with them tho, is to make an ice cream soda ..

Soda (0 points)

Flavor of choice (o) i love pineapple and chocolate separately, not together! grinning

and then 1 serving of the 1 point heart smart ice cream .. a GREAT soda for only 1 point!!

 

I'm just starting to play around with smoothies, so i'm looking forward to experimenting with them with that!

I found a few flavors in the coffee aisle in the Super Walmart, but, ultimately I had to order them online because the selection in the Walmart was limited.

Here's my cut and paste answer- :D

 

You can buy them direct online at http://www.davincigourmet.com and many other online sites. Some SuperWalmarts, Krogers and Albertsons have one or two flavors in the coffee aisle. TJMaxx and Marshalls sometimes carry a limited selection as well. Cost Plus World Market carry the Torani brand which is just as good IMO but doesn't have as many flavors. Some coffee houses and "lo-carb" stores carry them as well, but generally I've found them to be more expensive than buying online even with shipping.

Make sure you got the Sugar Free kind. I've never seen those flavors at Walmart in the Sugar Free. Davinci also makes regular sugar sweetened syrups. Those have points.

 

As far as what to use them in....scroll down. ;)
