To Make It Hot...
Add a few tablespoons to the bottom of your mug & pour coffee/espresso over syrup. Next, froth or steam your milk of choice & pour over top.
To Make It Iced...

Store the Syrup...
Store in fridge 7-10 days, but let's be honest, you'll enjoy it so much it won't last that long!
What do you think?!
the most basic suburban .....
For starters..... Basic. The term can be perceived to mean many different things. To me, it's; Simple. At the core, I am the same as many of you tuning in (major thank you for being here)!
I've become a natural living & wellness advocate working to do better everyday for my family & would love to help you do the same!
I take advantage of the perfect imperfections each day brings, while trying to raise good, kind babies.
So, if you ever catch yourself wondering what a simple suburban life is like, you can find me, The Basic Suburban, chasing my tiny humans, talking to my houseplants, dreaming of the next DIY & trying to smile & laugh my way through the day.
