From the maker of Splenda Sweeteners, this new product derives its natural sweetness from the monk fruit, a small green melon that grows in remote mountain regions in Asia. NECTRESSE is the only 100% natural sweetener made from fruit – monk fruit extract. It is a zero-calorie sweetener that is 150 times sweeter than sugar and can be used in cooking and baking, along with beverages and other treats. It is new and available to grocery stores in packets and in canisters.
Within an hour of receiving the NECTRESSE, I was plotting and planning ways to use it. I have a terribly powerful sweet tooth, but can’t really afford the calories, and NECTRESSE provided me a perfect solution! First, my kids and I tried a little of it straight (I know, I know). We were all pleased with it, but I’m telling you, it’s even better when used as it’s meant to be used: with other foods! :-)
I used NECTRESSE sweetener to sweeten my evening cup of herbal iced tea, and it was SO good. I honestly could not tell a difference, and I didn’t have to use as much of the sweetener as I do sugar, either.
I also decided to try it in my standard morning breakfast shake; my Chocolate PB Banana Smoothie. Fantastic! It’s an easy, quick recipe, and it’s my go-to breakfast almost every morning. Let me share:
Chocolate/Peanut Butter/Banana Smoothie
Put one frozen banana, sliced, into your blender and add a generous tablespoon of all natural peanut butter.
Add one tablespoon unsweetened cocoa powder to the mix, and pour in 3/4 – 1 cup milk, depending on how thick you want it (preferably hormone-free). Optionally, you can also add a little ground flax seed (about a teaspoon), for an extra fiber boost.
Add one packet of NECTRESSE sweetener.
Blend it up; then drink it down!
I absolutely love the fact that NECTRESSE is 100% natural. I love that it dissolves quickly. I love how little I have to use to sweeten my food(s). If you’d like to try it for yourself, head on over to FREE sample of NECTRESSE™Sweetener and snag a free sample to try.
