Summer is here, and we couldn’t be more excited. One reason why we can hardly contain our excitement is because our Super Fruit Syrup is finally available for purchase on our website! For those of you familiar with our Super Fruit Syrups, you know they have only been available in limited quantities at Costco’s around the country—and that when our fruit syrups are in stock, they sell out fast. So, by popular demand, we’ve worked really hard to make our fruit syrups more accessible to you!
Part of what makes our Super Fruit Syrup so popular is it not only tastes good on pancakes and waffles, but it also adds the natural sweetness of fruit in everything from Greek yogurt and iced tea to desserts and even marinades! To help you get creative with our syrups, we’ve crafted three unique recipes with our Super Fruit Syrup to give you some ideas. Check them out below!
Mountain Berry Yogurt Parfait
Summer wouldn’t be summer without sleeping in and sitting down to a good breakfast, right? Unfortunately, as we grow older, many of us don’t have this luxury because work rarely goes on summer break. So, to help your body get up and go—even while the kiddos take advantage of their new summer sleeping schedule—we’ve created this Mountain Berry Yogurt Parfait recipe that is full of good nutrition to start off your summer days strong. A power combo of Greek yogurt, mixed berries, Kodiak Cakes Mountain Berry Super Fruit Syrup, and granola makes this dish a great source of calcium, protein, probiotics, fiber, vitamins, and antioxidants that will all help increase energy levels, improve digestion, and boost your metabolism!
Raspberry Iced Tea
Long days basking in the summer sun can be surprisingly exhausting. In fact, did you know that your body has to work harder to maintain optimum body temperature when it’s hot outside? This explains why many of us hit an afternoon energy crash at about 3 PM. To help keep your energy levels up in the summer heat, it’s important to stay hydrated. We suggest serving up a refreshing glass raspberry iced tea. This recipe is very simple to make, calling for only two ingredients: unsweetened black tea and Kodiak Cakes Raspberry Super Fruit Syrup. Black tea offers a number of health benefitsincluding antioxidant properties and L-theanine, an amino acid that helps improve alertness and focus. Additionally, our raspberry syrup has less sugar than other sweeteners, like maple syrup or honey, which will help prevent your blood sugar from spiking to abnormally high levels. So, treat yourself to another glass—your body will thank you!
Apricot Spaghetti Sauce
Bring the taste of summer to your next batch of spaghetti with our Apricot Spaghetti Sauce recipe. Just add 1/3 cup Kodiak Cakes Apricot Super Fruit Syrup to your favorite jar of marinara sauce and pour it over your favorite noodles for a quick and easy summertime dinner that only takes a few minutes to make; which leaves you and the kids plenty of time for summertime night games! Among the many health benefits of apricots, did you know that they are a rich source of minerals to help bone growth and prevent age-related bone diseases? With that said, double up on nutrients and keep your bones strong by enjoying some freshly cut fruit on the side; after all, ‘tis the season to buy apricots!
