A new sweet treat

This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of Nectresse™ Sweetener for SocialSpark. All opinions are 100% mine.

One of the cool things about blogging is when you get free products in the mail to try out.  Recently I received a sample of NECTRESSE™Sweetener.  I went to FREE sample of NECTRESSE™Sweetener and several days later, a package arrived!  Yay for free stuff!  You should click the link and get your own free sample.  What have you got to lose?

Nectresse is an all-natural sweetener.  In fact it is the only 100% natural sweetener made from fruit--the monk fruit found in Asia.  Nectresse has no calories, so I was curious about whether or not it tasted any good.  The answer:  YES!!  it was super tastey.  No chemically aftertaste, just pure sweetness very much like real sugar.

I drink iced tea or hot tea all day long.  I like it sweet, but I drink so much of it that I don't really need the extra calories.  I ripped open a packet of Nectresse and poured half into my iced tea.  It dissolved completely with a few stirs.  The taste was really good!  I'm glad I only started with half a package though, because Nectresse is super concentrated.  A little goes a long way.  

I'm throwing the rest of the packets in my purse and I'm going to buy the canister of Nectresse to keep at home.  The website has a ton of recipes I want to try.  You can take a look at all the recipes here:

Once I decide Nectresse was a tastey and healthy sugar substitue, i decided to test it out on the kidlets.  Check out my own super simple recipe:

I gave this sweet treat to my kids as their after school snack.  They can't wait until I make it again.  Next time I'm subbing the vanilla extract for cinnamon and tossing it with apple slices.  I was thinking caramel flavoring would be really good with bananas.  We eat a LOT of fruit in our house, so it's nice to mix it up a bit and try something new.  Thanks to Nectresse for all the free stuff!!!


Lisa Ling also made a cool YouTube tesimonial about Nectresse.  You can see it here:
