How to Use LorAnn's Flavor Fountain in Commercial Shake Machines

This recipe converts any of LorAnn's Flavor Fountain flavors into a traditional syrup for shake machines.


6 pounds sugar
6 to 8 ounce Flavor Fountain (any flavor)
LorAnn's Preserve-It Mold Inhibitor, optional (see note below)


  1. Using a sanitized container with a known fill-line for 1-gallon (preferably stainless steel), add 6 to 8 ounces of LorAnn Flavor Fountain Flavor.
  2. Add 6 pounds sugar.
  3. Add enough warm water to bring the entire mixture to the 1-gallon fill-line.
  4. Stir until sugar dissolves.

Note: without adding a preservative, an opened container of syrup should be used within about 1-week. Shelf-life can be extended by adding LorAnn's Preserve-It Mold Inhibitor (item #6070). Use 3 teaspoons of mold inhibitor per finished gallon. Active ingredient is Potassium Sorbate. Even with a preservative, it is a good practice to use within 60 - 90 days.
