My recipes are grain free, refined sugar free and most are dairy free. I had Old Fashioned Buttermilk last year at a restaurant. I hadn’t had it since I was a kid. It reminded me of a friend’s mom who used to make it. This has such an old fashioned taste to it. A recipe to bring back memories of yesteryear. It is unique and flavorful syrup. I make this every once in a while for something different. Can be used in my Grain Free Roasted Strawberry Pancakes. Makes a little over one cup of syrup
3/4 cup canned coconut milk
1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
1/4 cup maple syrup
1/4 cup coconut oil
1 teaspoon vanilla
1/2 t baking soda
Mix coconut milk and fresh lemon juice. Let stand 10 minutes. Combine oil, sugar coconut milk and bring to a boil. Once it is at a complete boil let it boil one minute. Take off heat. Carefully whisk in baking soda and vanilla. Don’t add baking soda when it is boiling or it will foam up really fast. Stir for 2 minutes or so. Serve with pancakes, waffles, french toast or ice cream. Store remaining syrup in a glass jar with a screw top in the fridge will last one month. When using refrigerated syrup pour into a measuring cup and stir until mixed put in microwave for 1 – 2 minutes. Best served warm.
Variation: Substitute another flavoring in place of vanilla. For example raspberry extract, coconut extract, almond extract etc.
