The Way to BE

Holiday Spiced Yams


Instead of maple syrup, this recipe uses all-natural Lakanto Sweetener. Lakanto Sweetener has the sweet, deep and full-bodied taste you would expect to find in maple syrup—without all the sugar! This means that you can still enjoy a holiday classic without weakening the immune system or spiking blood sugar.
