1. Mixing syrup with yogurt/pureed fruit/cottage cheese/etc. makes the syrup taste go farther while saving you a TON of calories. One serving of maple syrup (¼ cup) is roughly 200 calories. My maple pumpkin spread was approximately 100 calories for the whole batch and I only used a little over half. I recommend pumpkin, applesauce, and pureed bananas (it’s also a great way to get an extra serving of fruit!). Or, if you are more of a syrup purist, try 1 tsp. syrup to 1 tbsp. plain yogurt. The best part of all? You can eat any leftovers with a spoon because it’s pretty much just flavored yogurt!
