Cut your calories, improve your health, and still enjoy your favorite sweet treats.
If you are concerned about too much sugar in your diet and are reluctant to use artificial sweeteners, try these delicious low-sugar recipes, sweetened with an extract of the herb stevia rebaudiana. The intense flavor of stevia extract is about 200 to 300 times sweeter than sugar, with no calories and a glycemic index of 0. Used by millions of people around the world and deemed safe by doctors and scientists, stevia may be the answer to your sugar woes.
Easily available in supermarkets across the country in a variety of forms including liquid and powdered extracts, there is also information on how to grow stevia in your garden. Over 100 recipes feature everything from desserts and baked goods to salads and shakes.
Here is a sampling of the recipes you can make:
Yam Pecan Muffins
Cranberry Orange Muffins
Breakfast Sweet Rolls
Blueberry Tofu Bundt Cake
Stevia is the perfect sweetener for anyone wanting to limit their intake of simple carbohydrates and calories naturally.
