I am sure that most of you would have noticed that in the past year or two, Kevin and I have been trying our best to start eating healthier and exercising more. We have been incorporating more fresh fruits and vegetables into our diet as well as cut back on unhealthy food. One of the biggest change take we took in this effort to live a healthier lifestyle was to try reduce or even eliminate our sugar intake. Now, this was a big task for us, because we both have a sweet tooth. So, we had to rely on no calorie sweeteners as a substitute. Yes, I know, you must be saying, hang on. I heard that certain sweeteners are bad for you? Also, some taste really horrible. How can you even put up with that? Well, let me tell you this. If you are thinking that, then you must have never heard of NECTRESSE™Sweetener!
From the maker of Splenda Sweeteners, NECTRESSE Sweetener is unlike any other sweetener in the market. It is the only 100% natural sweetener made from fruit, monk fruit extract, to be exact. Monk fruit is a small green melon that has grown on lush vines in remote mountain regions in Asia for hundreds of years. It’s deliciously sweet and when combined with the perfect blend of other natural sweeteners, it brings us the rich sweet taste of sugar, without all the calories. That’s right, not only is it 100% natural, it also has zero calories per serving too! NECTRESSE Natural No Calorie Sweetener is 150 times sweeter than sugar and can be used in cooking and baking to add natural, zero calorie per serving sweetness in our favorite beverages and a delicious variety of foods. I had a chance to sample it a while ago and I must say, I am hooked! I use it all the time now. I would use it to sweeten my drinks, especially my iced tea and hot chocolate. Also, I would sprinkle a little on my cereal every morning. It definitely gives it a little extra sweetness, minus the calories! Apart from that, I would also use it in my baking. Boy, I sure made a whole lot of stuff with it. I tried baking an apple pie, various cakes and even some apple turnovers. In fact, let me share with you my all-time favorite Apple Turnover recipe, that I tried making with NECTRESSE.
