Probiotics in Greek Yogurt Are Good For Gut Health

How to Pick a Maple Syrup
When it comes to picking a maple syrup, there are a few things you need to take into account. First, what kind of flavor do you want? There are three main types of maple syrup: light, medium, and dark. Light maple syrup has a delicate flavor that is perfect for pancakes and waffles. Medium maple syrup has a richer flavor that pairs well with oatmeal and yogurt. Dark maple syrup has the strongest flavor and is best used in baking or as a finishing touch on savory dishes.
Second, what is your budget? Maple syrup can be expensive, so it is important to know how much you are willing to spend. The good news is a little goes a long way, especially in this recipe. And, since you are mixing it with other ingredients, you don’t need a large bottle. We do recommend using 100% pure maple syrup though…it just tastes better!
What Other Ways Can You Use This Caramel Maple Yogurt Dip?
We suggest dipping apples, bananas and even graham crackers into it. Some other ways you can use the dip include:
- Dipping pretzels into it
- Drizzling it over French toast or pancakes in place of syrup
- Stir some of it into a serving of oatmeal for breakfast
How Long Will the Caramel Maple Yogurt Dip Last in the Fridge?
