  • 1 cup water
  • 1 cup low carb powdered sweetener of your choice (e.g., erythritol or monk fruit)
  • ½ Tbsp brown-colored maple extract
  • Xanthan gum, as desired


  1. Whisk water, sweetener, and maple extract in a small sauce pot.
  2. Heat until mixture is gently boiling, stirring frequently.
  3. Continue boiling another 5 minutes or until sweetener dissolves.
  4. If you prefer a thicker texture, add xanthan gum in increments of ¼ teaspoon at a time sprinkled evenly over the entire mixture.
  5. If your mixture is clumpy, puree your mixture while it is warm to break down clumps. Use caution to prevent burns.
