Product Review: Sugar Free Raspberry Syrup

Updated on August 18, 2010

Torani flavored syrup

I’m on a healthy low carb diet – it’s the only way I can lose weight. I’ve tried a plethora of other diets, all to no avail. Either they make me feel lousy, I’m hungry all the time, or I just don’t drop any pounds. Low carb diets allow me to fill up on meat, seafood, and chicken, along with healthy low carb veggies like broccoli, Brussels sprouts, greens, cauliflower, zucchini, yellow squash, cabbage, and green beans. I also eat one piece of fruit a day, usually. One day a week, I splurge! This seems to keep me focused and able to maintain the low carb dieting.

Several years ago, I lost almost 100 pounds by low carb dieting! I felt great. My blood pressure dropped, my triglycerides dropped, and my cholesterol dropped. I was doing aerobics and weight lifting at the gym several days a week.

Unfortunately, I guess I overdid it with the weights – at least that’s what my doctors say. Either that, or carrying around the G-cup twins caused the nerve damage in my neck and upper back. Along with that, I developed severe osteoarthritis in my right hip and knee from an old injury. Needless to say, these developments really slowed me down, and I began to pack the weight back on. I regained about 60-70 of the pounds I had lost, so I’m trying again.

I’m always on the lookout for sugar-free products and low-carb foods to incorporate into my low carb diet. I've tried several flavored syrups for coffee that I like. A couple of weeks ago, I found a sugar free, calorie-free raspberry syrup that I’ve fallen in love with. It’s called Torani Raspberry Flavored Syrup, and I found it at Walmart.

Uses for sugar-free raspberry syrup with low carb dieting

How do I use the raspberry syrup? One of my favorite ways is to make raspberry vinaigrette salad dressing. I just mix the raspberry flavored syrup with apple cider or white vinegar, a little oil, garlic, onion powder, and salt and pepper. It’s really tasty!

I also add the sugar free syrup to homemade coleslaw sometimes to add a little fruit flavor to the mix. The flavored syrup gives the slaw a kick and adds to the interest of the healthy low carb dish.

And this might sound strange, but I also like to brush grilled shrimp, scallops, and fish fillets with the sugar free syrup. It’s a heck of a lot healthier and lower in calories than adding butter, oil, or tarter sauce!

Check out these other uses for the sugar-free syrup, and don't forget about the flavored syrups for coffee:

  • add the flavored syrup to lemonade
  • add it to iced tea
  • add it to plain yogurt
  • use it as a topping for sugar-free ice cream
  • use it as a glaze on chicken, ham, or fresh pork
  • dip fresh fruit like peaches, pears, or strawberries in it
  • use the flavored syrup in smoothies
  • add it to sugar-free ginger ale
  • make sugar-free popsicles with it
  • make low-carb raspberry cheesecake with it

Low carb dieting doesn’t mean you have to ignore your sweet tooth!

Actually, I don’t have a large sweet tooth, but once in a while, I want something sweet. Of course, this is tough on a low carb diet. The sugar-free raspberry syrup, however, allows me to enjoy guilt-free pleasures while on a healthy low carb diet.

I totally recommend this syrup! You’ll find all kinds of uses for it. Torani also has other flavors of sugar-free syrups, but I haven’t tried them out yet! They make flavored syrups for coffee, too!
