The new year is always a great time to kick off new healthy habits – including everything from working on your fitness to cleaning up your eating. After all of the holiday baking and preparing treats for friends and family, you may be accustomed to turning to Rodelle for trusted baking essentials. But, did you know that those baking essentials can also be the cornerstones of flavor that will make your healthy recipes shine?
Rodelle Vanilla Extract is a wonderful flavor enhancer for unsweetened or naturally sweetened recipes, similar to those holiday cookies and candies. Adding vanilla extract is an easy way to flavor unsweetened, plain yogurt for a quick, protein-packed breakfast. Or, try adding a teaspoon to acidic dishes like a hearty and healthy tomato bisque to cut through some of the acidity.
Rodelle Gourmet Baking Cocoa isn’t just for baking! With a superior, all-natural cocoa flavor, your breakfast oatmeal or smoothies can take on an indulgent taste without adding sugar or excess calories. We’re big fans of our low-carb Whipped Cocoa Ricotta with Pears – this is a low-fat calcium and antioxidant rich breakfast option. We serve ours with pears for a hint a sweetness.
Rodelle Pure Almond Extract is a fabulous way to add a sweet flavor to your morning coffee without adding any calories or sugar. If you crave that richness from coffee creamer, you can make your own with this recipe – just substitute 2 teaspoons of Almond Extract in place of the Vanilla Extract!
Lastly, Rodelle Gourmet and Organic Spices and Spice Blends pack on the flavor without a lot of sodium, calories or added sugars. Check out all of our spice offerings to add gourmet flavor to your favorite dishes!
