Typically, I’m not a big condiment girl. Living without ketchup, mustard, etc. just isn’t a big deal to me. I do. However, LOVE making my syrups. These syrups are so versatile and are just perfect for DIY gifts. Spiced vanilla syrup, in particular, is ideal for the holiday season because it hits the seasonal flavors and provides a warm coziness. It’s like being wrapped up in your favorite blanket in your favorite spot on the couch.
Who doesn’t need a little sweet rest and relaxation this time of year?

This Spiced vanilla syrup is amazing for homemade lattes, homemade coffee creamer, pancakes, or even cocktails. My favorite way to use this is to mix it with almond milk, making a dairy-free creamer for my morning coffee. And, it’s entirely preservative free and without any questionable ingredients. What’s not to love? You can even whip a batch of this up quicker than you can get to the store and back! I call that a win. I’d rather be at home in my pj’s with my family than running errands any day of the week.
This syrup typically graces our table for the big breakfast holiday’s. Christmas, for us, is a big (but easy) breakfast day. I try to make as much as I can the night before and then whip up some pancakes or french toast the morning of. Quick, simple, and oh-so-delicious. Making the syrup the day before is fantastic too because it means I get to spend the day doing what I want to do instead of being in the kitchen. Even though, some days, I welcome hiding in the kitchen. In the chaos, sometimes it’s the only place to find some peace. And chocolate (or wine) depending on the time of day!
