The Best Agave Nectar Ever - Recipe with a new lower sugar content!

The Best Agave Nectar (Lower Carb - Vegan - Gluten Free)


This is my amazing mother's creation. We have been using agave this way for years now and it works great. We love this easy formula because the added vegetable glycerine cuts way down on the sugar and carb count of the agave, yet, you still get the delicious taste of the agave shining through. It is a great alternative to using honey, and it doesn't crystallize like honey does.

We like to use this nectar in fruit salads, salad dressings, beverages and smoothies, sauces, desserts, hot cereals, and anywhere else where you want a touch of sweetness.

You may know already that vegetable glycerine is naturally quite sweet, it is also warming in the mouth, and it acts as a natural preservative. Glycerine has been traditionally used to make very gentle herbal tinctures for children, so it is very safe and time tested. This is just a cool new way to use it!



AGAVE NECTAR Recipe:

Difficulty Level: Easy peasy!
Yield: 16 ounces

8 ounces raw organic agave nectar
8 ounces natural vegetable glycerine

Method:

In a clean bowl, mix equal parts agave and glycerine thoroughly.
Pour into suitable bottles with tight fitting lids. Store in a cool, dark place.


Tip: We like to store this blend in a glass jar, and refill a convenient to use squeeze bottle from that.



Enjoy,
