Organic Yacon Syrup - Healthy Alternative to Sugar #ProductReview

Organic Yacon Syrup - Healthy Alternative to Sugar


I’m a health conscious mom. I watch what I feed my kids…especially when it comes to sugary treats. Finding alternative sweet treats is always a fun adventure into new and different foods. Then I was introduced to Yacon syrup from Peak Fusion

I had to research what this new sweetener was all about. I mean, Dr.Oz featured it for its weight loss benefits, but I wasn’t sure if it was a sugar alternative that I’d want to give my kids. 

Here is what I found out:

Yacon Syrup is an organic syrup loaded with prebiotic and  high in fiber to promote healthy digestion. It is a low-glycemic sweetener, which means it won’t spike your blood sugar. As a raw, organic, super healthy sugar alternative, Yacon Syrup comes from the yacon plant, a South American tuber that look a bit like a potato. The yacon’s health benefits and pleasant taste has been appreciated by native Peruvian cultures for centuries.


When I received my sample bottle of Yacon Syrup from Peak Fusion, the syrup was thick like molasses but had a sweet-ish taste to it. Since it promotes benefits for being a sugar alternative, I immediately had to test it in one of my kids favorite treats – a smoothie. So, I took out my NutriBullet blender, some aloe juice, a bag of mixed frozen fruit, coconut milk, a scoop of ‘Green drink’ nutrient supplement (which can have a chalky bitter taste), and a tablespoon of yacon syrup.

Honestly, the smoothie tasted great! I couldn’t taste the ‘Green drink’ supplement. And my kids slurped them down as if they were chocolate milkshakes. My daughter and husband even got more adventurous and taste tested a spoonful of the yacon syrup. They said it tasted slightly sweet, like molasses with a hint of berries.

The verdict? This seems to be a great alternative to pure cane sugar. The kids loved it. And, they don't even know they are getting a little extra superfood fiber in their bodies. 

Plus, when you order, Peak Fusion offers recipes you can use with the syrup – like French toast (this is on my weekend plans with the kids soon). Peak Fusion offers their syrup on Amazon with a 30-day money back guarantee. Once you order, they even send you information on the recipes they offer. It was definitely one of the more pleasant Amazon merchant transactions that I’ve ever encountered. 

So, how open are you to trying new alternative sweeteners?

Until Next Time,

Katie
