Amaretto Coffee syrup will supercharge your mornings. Why should your kids have all the fun? Perfect for brunch with a pitcher of mimosas. Sweet, bold, and smooth taste.
Why a Coffee Syrup Recipe?
To be brutally honest, I have a sweet tooth and I grew tired of dumping sugar on oatmeal and eating sugary morning treats like cinnamon rolls. Thus, I set out to create a treat just for me. I adore maple syrup on fluffy pancakes in the morning and a soothing amaretto coffee drink in the evening. Consequently, I combine the two into one simple recipe.
Coffee Syrup for Adults
- 2 tbsp plant-based butter (melted)
- 1/2 cup brewed coffee (black – no cream or sugar)
- 1 cup organic maple syrup
- 2 tbsp Amaretto
- In a mixing bowl, add maple syrup and coffee. Whisk until combined.
- Add 1 tbsp of melted butter. Mix together until smooth.
- Add 1 tbsp of Amaretto. Mix together until smooth.* Add less or more Amaretto to taste
- Serve on waffles or pancakes.
Is Amaretto Coffee Syrup Low Cal?
The short answer is NO. The syrup alone is rated at 180 calories per serving and when combined with the waffles or pancakes, you will see a rather high calorie count. However, this recipe satisfies our desire for sugar. That is to say, it is a treat, not an every day meal.
Is it Healthy?
Surprisingly, the answer is YES. In the first place, the recipe uses 100% organic maple syrup. Furthermore, I choose to use organic coffee and a high-quality brand of amaretto like Disaronno. Also, I use plant-based butter to keep this within vegan standards. Traditionally, we think of coffee and maple syrup as less than healthy items. However, several articles suggest otherwise.
In summary, I love passing out this recipe. However, Amaretto coffee syrup is not for everyone. Many adults see little appeal in this treat. I will be the first to admit the adult palette is a difficult target and this recipe is for a select few. I only ask you consider it.
