I may post a picture later. Simple syrup is simply 50/50 water and sugar. It's commonly used by bartenders. Simply heat up water in a pot on the stove (preferably filtered water or you could even use distilled if you wanted to) with sugar. Stir as it heats and the sugar will mix with the water It's not going be a heavy syrup if that is a concern of yours. Store in a bottle. A Nalgene bottle is perfect for this. It's easy to use for coffee, iced teas, smoothies, and so on. You could bring this camping. It doesn't need refrigeration but I keep it in there anyway. Simple smoothie: Fruit+ice+water+simple syrup+blend and enjoy. Instead of using simple syrup, you can use fruit juice such as orange, apple, lemonade, cranberry, etc. What makes simple syrup better is that you may not want to use fruit juice with your smoothie as it tends to mess with the fruit flavor. The syrup is neutral and will blend with anything. Enjoy.
