Homemade Sugar Free Amaretto recipe provided by Tara Wright, Whole Body Living

This recipe for sugar free amaretto tastes just like the real thing. You can easily make this a non-alcoholic version by replacing the vodka with 1 cup of water. I’ve been avoiding alcohol recently and have been making all my favorite holiday drinks non-alcoholic instead.

This way, I get the flavor and ‘treat’ of a special holiday drink without the detrimental effects alcohol tends to have on my body. I learned recently that alcohol increases estrogen by 300% (I think for 24 hours) and reduces testosterone. That really got me thinking about how crappy I feel when I have a drink.

Regardless of the version you decide to enjoy.  This sugar free amaretto recipe will be a recipe you return to time and time again! For the best flavor, mix up this sugar free amaretto recipe at least one week in advance and allow it to age. If you’ve made the non-alcoholic version, you can enjoy it right away!
