The Southern Caramel Pecan Pie Star: Maple Extract
Many of us have been dousing maple syrup over pancakes for ages with little regard for the nutrient factor. But the health-conscious use it and maple extract as a sweetener. And with good reason! Maple extract is a concentrated flavoring agent distilled and derived from the sugar maple trees.
Authentic, organic maple has multiple essential antioxidant properties which disarm free radicals and promote healthy cells. It’s also a bearer of zinc, which strengthens the immune system. Maple also has heart health benefits, utilizing its abundance of zinc to protect against cardiovascular disturbance. This prevents stroke, and a number of other ailments. Zinc is also excellent for men’s reproductive health, boosting function of the prostate gland.
It has high levels of carbohydrates, proteins, iron, and potassium. Lastly, it acts as a catalyst and helps govern the processing of food in the body.
Use 3/4 teaspoon of maple extract with pecans, lowfat graham cracker, and 310 Shake Salted Caramel Powder as a base. Blend with vanilla flavored almond milk and ice, and you can easily create a delicious dessert that channels one of autumn’s richest desserts!
