My morning routing begins with a hot cup of tea with Splenda. Today I tried something different, Splenda’s sucralose alternative Nectresse.
There is nothing artificial in this natural no calorie sweetener. Its monk fruit (Asian melon), sugar, and molasses make it deliciously sweet. Because it is concentrated, a little goes a long way.
Nectresse has zero calories, no gluten, and nothing artificial, and heat stable for baking and cooking–all pluses for health and weight conscious folks. FYI: In diabetic meal planning, two packets or one teaspoon of Nectresse is considered free food. But, the most important thing is its taste.
I like it in a hot beverage, but what about everything else? Time to check out iced tea, fresh berries, frozen strawberries, ricotta cheese, and cereal for starters. Taste tests completed and Nectresse measures up. It is delicious, sweet but definitely not cloying. What’s your pleasure? Mine is Nectresse.
Nectresse has shared their top four ways to help make a “sweet swap” and decrease your calorie intake.
· Morning blend: Kick-start your mornings with a fresh fruit smoothie, without the added sugar. Sprinkle NECTRESSE™ Natural No Calorie Sweetener into your blender with assorted berries, low fat yogurt and ice. Blend and enjoy!
· Mid-day snack: Top your favorite low fat Greek yogurt with a handful of fresh-cut strawberries and a sprinkling of NECTRESSE™ Natural Natural No Calorie Sweetener.
· Drink up: Mix 5 cups water, 1 cup fresh lemon juice and ¼ cup of NECTRESSE™ Natural No Calorie Sweetener in a pitcher; garnish with fresh mint sprigs and lemon slices, and serve over ice.
· A sweeter entrée: Tomato sauce, barbeque sauce, glazes and salad dressings no longer have to be sugary and calorie-laden. Substitute NECTRESSE™ Natural No Calorie Sweetener into your hearty homemade recipes.
