Here are some really easy ways to add Yacon Syrup to your daily diet. Now because the natural flavor of the Yakon Syrup is similar to Molasses but not as strong it can be used with other strong foods such as Chocolate, peanut butter, coconut milk, dried fruits like dates and apples, winter vegetables like squash, and sweet potatoes.
Note: Be sure NOT to cook or bake with yacon as the heat will destroy the valuable properties in the syrup. Heat as hot as tea or coffee is fine just don’t cook with it.
You can always try it out on your own homemade recipes once you experiment with it and a get a taste for it. You’ll be amazed at what you can come up with.
