According to the calendar spring arrived over a month ago, but it doesn’t quite feel that way until the magnolia trees are in bloom, the cherry blossoms start to pop and the tulips begin to peek up from the ground. It’s like nature is doing a refresh.
Speaking of a refresh, remember those resolutions you made on January 1st? If you don’t, you’re not alone — most people start falling off the resolution bandwagon by mid-January (we’re cringing because we can relate.) We’re here to tell you that it’s not too late to hop back on.
Resolutions come in varying levels of lifestyle-changing commitments, and while we can’t expertly speak on how to help improve a yoga practice, we can offer some handy life hacks to keep people on track with one of the most popular resolutions: a healthier diet.
When we commit to eating healthier, it’s important to remember that we need to drink healthier too. Sodas, flavored creamers, and sugary juices are just as detrimental to those clean eating resolutions as that basket of fries! At the same time, we’re not saying to give up all that flavor, either.
So, what’s a self-proclaimed flavor addict to do? Cue Bakery Emulsions to save the day! With a mouthwatering array of flavors to pick from and no added sweeteners or barely-there sugar content*, there’s an endless amount of ways to use them and stay within the confines of your diet. These are a few fan favorites that go beyond flavoring cakes and cookies (but hey, everyone deserves a cheat day or 10)….
*Cherry, coffee, cookie butter, hazelnut & strawberry bakery emulsions contain a trace amount of sugar (less than .25 grams per teaspoon).
Instead of reaching for that creamer, grab your favorite milk alternative and reach for a hazelnut, pumpkin spice, or cinnamon spice Bakery Emulsion. Starbucks, who?
For when you’re craving bubbles and sparkling water just isn’t cutting it! Try mixing a splash of raspberry, coconut or strawberry into your bubbly water for a refreshing, healthy drink. Bonus: making your own fizzy refreshments means you’re also doing the environment a favor by cutting down the use of bottles and cans. Win!
Supercharged Nutritional Drinks
Anyone else tired of run-of-the-mills protein shake flavors? Chocolate, strawberry, vanilla, repeat. We’re all for a Neapolitan shake, but after a while, these gold standards can start to dull. Our customers seem to feel the same way, so we’ve gotten many accounts of people using the Bakery Emulsions to add a little somethin’ somethin’ to their shakes. One cookie butter protein smoothie, coming right up!
Sure, the obvious (and delicious) use for our Bakery Emulsion is baked goods, but we challenge you to think beyond the pan! Customers watching their diets have used Bakery Emulsions in everything from plain Greek yogurt to vegan whipped cream — the possibilities are endless! We personally love the idea of adding a splash of cherry flavor to a chocolate chia seed pudding for a guilt-free treat in a jar.
Do you have a favorite use for the Bakery Emulsions that we didn’t mention in this article? Share them with us in the comments!
How much emulsion do you recommend adding to a drink?
Hi Abigail – I suggest adding a small amount and increasing to taste. The exact amount with depend on the size of the drink and your preferred flavor intensity.
