Calorie Free Syrup

I've been experimenting with creating my own calorie free syrups to rival the Walden Farms type lately (I like them, but they're pretty expensive).
 
Anyway, came up with one which I love.  It's just water, sweetener, cake flavouring, xanthan gum, guar gum and a pinch of salt. Chuck it all in a shaker bottle and shake until thickened.
 
Awesome on protein pancakes and/or ice cream, or as a topping for oats.
 
Full recipe is on my site (http://nuutrii.com/recipe/202)

    I'm going to give this a go - would it work with just xanthan gum or is the guar gum something that cant be left out? The reason I ask is I've got xanthan gum and can get it in ASDA easily, guar gum I think I'd need to get online. Looked on your site, what caramel flavouring do you use?

    Yes, it will be fine with just xanthan gum, the texture may be a little different.
     
    For the caramel, I use Dr. Oetker caramel flavouring. You can get it in Asda in the baking isle.

    Yesterday, I tried making a peanut butter sauce without using guar gum, using;
    400ml water
    0.5 tsp salt
    1.5 tsp xanthan gum
    2 tbsp sweetener
    2 tbsp fat reduced peanut flour
     
    Tastes amazing!

    I made the caramel one at the weekend - just half the quantity to see how it was and it didn't last long so I'll be making more. Good stuff.
     
    I'll give the peanut butter one a go next. Fortunately, GoNutrition had a summer sale and packs of peanut flour was 70% off at £3 and I bough four tubs

    Good deal on the peanut flour.
     
    The syrup used to be something I would use sparingly due to the cost, but now I go though 400ml in several days!
