What in the world is Yacon Syrup??  I wondered this myself as I had never heard of it.  Yacon syrup is made from the roots of the yacon plant.  It is a natural sweetener that is used by people with diabetes and digestive problems.  It has been found to boost metabolism and increase weight loss.  It is also vegan, gluten free and non-GMO.  Yacon Syrup is high in fiber to it keeps your digestive system happy!

I got to sample Simple Health’s Yacon Syrup.  The syrup has a bit of a fruity flavor and is slightly similar to molasses.  I am pretty picky about what I put on my pancakes and waffles so I decided to use it in a smoothie in place of honey.  It tastes great and goes well mixed into a smoothie.  I also used a drizzle of it on my peanut butter and honey sandwich which was pretty good.  I don’t know if I would prefer it over honey, but it’s a great option for someone looking for a natural sweetener with tons of health benefits.

Simple Health has a bunch of great recipes on their website which I look forward to trying!  The chocolate peanut butter torte sounds especially delicious!  Leave me a comment telling me which recipe you would try!!
