Quite awhile back, our family started on a journey to eat healthier and we have learned a lot along the way. Cutting down on sugar has been a challenge. We are far from sugar-free in our household (I can’t imagine a life completely without sugar), but we have been taking baby steps. I also happen to have been attempting to lose the extra pounds that have crept up the closer I creep towards the big 4-0. Successfully! I have lost about 15 pounds over the last several months (slow and steady wins the race)!. One of the things that I have done is to replace sugar with sugar substitutes. I will not use artificial sweeteners, so I have been using stevia, but I’m not really crazy about the taste. Recently I was introduced to NECTRESSE™Sweetener!
NECTRESSE™Sweetener is the only 100% natural sweetener made from fruit. It is derived from monk fruit, a small green melon that has grown in mountainous regions of Asia for hundreds of years. The monk fruit extract is combined with other natural sweetners to bring you the taste of sugar, but calorie free, and it can be used in cooking and baking, just like you would use regular sugar. Use this natural sweetener in your iced tea or use it in your favorite cookie recipe for natural sweetening without all of the calories. I used it in my gluten free blueberry pancakes instead of stevia!
The consistency of NECTRESSE™Sweetener is like that of granulated sugar, not powdered sugar, and I like that. It can be purchased in individual packets or in a canister. It blended well with my pancake batter and added the perfect amount of sweetness. The whole family loved them!
Don’t those look amazing? I’m not the only one who is impressed Nectresse. Lisa Ling is a big fan too. Here’s what she has to say about it…
