My first attempt seemed simple enough:
Low fat vanilla yogurt
Frozen cherry berry blend
A drizzle of honey
Sounds like it should work, right? Yeah, well it didn't. I think it was the honey, but it had a weird aftertaste and it got poured down the sink. I just couldn't force myself to ingest it.
Tonight, I decided I really wanted to play with the Torani Sugar Free Syrup I bought on the recommendation of Eggface. I'm out of protein powder so I was making do with what I had. I thought this sounded good in theory.
1 cup low fat vanilla yogurt
1/4 cup pumpkin puree
2 tbsp SF Torani Caramel Syrup
Once again, not very good. I think it was the syrup, to be honest. It seemed to have a cheap alcohol aftertaste. Not what I was looking for. I was thinking creamy pumpkin pie-ish. But again, my sink was fed.
I have resigned myself to sticking with what Eggface has already proven to be tried and true. Now if it was pay day so I could actually get some protein powder.
On the bright side, I'm looking forward to trying the SF Caramel Latte recipe on the Torani bottle tomorrow morning. It sounds right up my alley and cheaper than Sbux.
