My husband and I have recently been taking steps to cut down some of the sugar intake in our own lives as well as take more steps in making sure we are better modeling healthy eating habits for our young boys. I once read the ‘after-baby weight loss’ tip, that we consider eating the same foods we are feeding to our little ones. I laughed at the time, but realized recently that I go to great lengths  to feed my children a well-balanced diet with the minimal amount of sugar possible, protein, whole-grains, etc.  However, I do not always eat nearly as healthy! I don’t just have a sweet tooth, but rather a mouth full of sweet teeth! :) As a mom I feel that it is important for me to model a healthy lifestyle that honors God in every way, and healthy eating is one of those categories that we as a family are planning to take head-on in the next couple months!

I was excited when I was given the opportunity to sample and review NECTRESSE™Sweetener. I don’t typically mind sweeteners, however my husband can taste want he calls ‘fake sugar’ miles away. I was a little nervous as to how he would respond to the change. NECTRESSE™Sweetener is a no calorie sweetener made from Monk Fruit extract. It is 100% natural and has zero calories per serving. Nectresee sweetener is from the makers of Splenda. This sweetener is from Monk Fruit extract . Monk Fruit is a small green melon that grows on lush vines in remote mountain regions in Asia. Deliciously sweet Monk Fruit extract is is combined with the perfect blend of other natural sweeteners to bring you the sweet taste of sugar without all the calories. Since receiving the sample, we have used it in our iced coffee, our morning cup of coffee, and a few of our favorite baking recipes! We loved that Nectresse does not have a bad after-taste and it stirred into our hot coffee well without leaving tiny little pieces for you to chew as some artificial sweeteners typically do. The most important lesson we learned in using Nectresse was that you actually add less than you would regular sugar to your drinks and recipes! In addition to using NECTRESSE™Sweetener in our favorite summer drinks, we used it in our favorite The Best Chocolate Chip Cookies recipe to see if we would notice a difference. We did not! How great it that! We actually found that when baking with Nectresse you actually notice less of a difference than when using it in drinks. Here is our recipe:

    I am trying Nectesse for the first time right now in a cup of coffee. It doesn’t taste like artificial sweetener. I prefer to use stevia since it is natural, so I thought I would give Nectresse a try. So far I like it as much, if not better than stevia.

    I used it with coffee and didn’t notice ANY difference. I am getting ready to make a homemade on-the-go- drink mix that Iove to make and take with me, and see how THAT goes. the recipe calls for 1 cup sugar, so based on the conversion of 1/4 tsp Nectresse = 1 tsp of sugar, I will be using 4 tablespoons of Nectresse. I am also making cookies tonight, chocolate snaps, (kind of like ginger snaps, just chocolate instead), and I will be seeing how that goes. So far, we are VERY pleased with how it tastes…and it IS NATURAL:)

    I can’t tolerate any of the recent sweetners, not even the Stevia based ones. After a while, I just get a taste in my mouth that won’t go away until I stop making myself use any previous types of sweetners. I usually just go with sugar and try to strictly limit it. Its less trouble. But….

    I have finally found the sweetner for me! I have been using Nectress for more than a week now and no strange build-up taste. I’ve had it in hot tea and over fruit almost every day. The one thing I didn’t love it in was my favorite drink, iced tea. But it was still a lot better than some other ones I tried. It could be that I like my iced tea really strong and maybe haven’t gotten the ratio right yet. But I am hopeful that I will.

    Since I just recently started a diet, I am super excited about this stuff.
