I recently had the opportunity to try the new NECTRESSE™Sweetener from the makers of Splenda. Nectresse is the only 100% natural sweetener made from fruit, monkfruit to be exact, a small green melon that grows in the remote mountain regions of Asia. The great thing about this new sweetener… ZERO calories.
I tried Nectresse in my coffee, but must admit I prefer my terribly bad for you artificial sweetener in that. I really liked the Nectresse sweetener in smoothies though. I added 2 packets into the blender along with unsweetened yogurt, unsweetened almond milk , fruit and sometimes cocoa powder, pulse & serve. A filling healthy smoothie with great flavor and naturally sweetened without adding calories. I think this would go well in dessert recipes too.
Lisa Ling is the spokesperson for the new sweetener. A long family history of diabetes made her very familiar with non-calorie sweeteners, but she now prefers the natural zero calorie sweetness of Nectress over the other product options. Check out her video, for yourself.
If you would also like to give this exotic new zero calorie sweetener a try, grab a FREE sample of NECTRESSE™Sweetener here, or look for it in stores (it is already widely available).
