In the midst of last week's sugar challenge, my only craving for sugar was my missing nightly sweet drink during dinner. My "sweet" drink of choice is usually homemade water kefir soda, or a glass of lemonade. Neither are crawling with sugar, but I tried to be strict during the challenge.
On Wednesday, it hit me like a ton of bricks - a simple syrup made with honey! I bounded in to the kitchen giddy with excitement over a return of my precious dinner companion. It couldn't have been more simple (hint: that's probably why it is called a simple syrup...), and was delicious!
Healthified Simple Syrup
-3 parts water
-1 part raw honey
Put in a pan and stir with a whisk until boiling.
Pour in to containers and refrigerate until cold.

Mix 1 part simple syrup, to 1 part freshly squeezed lime or lemon juice, to 1 part water. Delish!
