We sure love our sweet tea here in the South! I can’t recall the last time my family sat down for dinner and didn’t have a pitcher of sweet tea on the table. I realize that regularly serving sweet tea to my family isn’t a very health conscious thing to do, so I have cut back on the sugar – a lot. Either I serve a less sweetened tea or use a blend of sugar and artificial sweetener. Using just artificial sweetener hasn’t gone over very well. I get too many complaints. Because of my family’s LOVE for sweet tea, I was eager to try Nevella To Go and participate in the Nevella Sweetness To Go Challenge.
Last week I received a few Nevella To Go sweeteners – Monk Fruit, Stevia, and Sucralose. The come in handy little flip to containers (1.68 ounce) that provide 80 servings. I like the portability of the containers. They are small enough for me to carry in my purse and they don’t take up much cupboard space. All three of the sweeteners come in a liquid form which I particularly like. Unlike powdered or granulated sweeteners, the Nevella To Go dissolves instantly – no stirring required. This is an especially nice for sweetening iced tea. I can’t stand how regular granulated sugar doesn’t fully dissolve.
Monk Fruit is a fruit from Asia that has been used for nearly 800 years by locals as an all natural sweetener. Monk Fruit contains mogrosides, a naturally occurring zero calorie sweetener.
Stevia is a plant that grows mainly in the plains areas of South America. Stevia contains rebiana, a naturally occurring zero calorie sweetener.
Sucralose is the main ingredient used in Splenda brand products. This sweetener is made using a process that starts with sugar and converts it to a zero calorie and zero carbohydrate sweetener that is almost 600 times sweeter than sugar.
Just one squirt of liquid Monk Fruit, Stevia, or Sucralose and you get the same sweetness as a teaspoon of sugar. The big difference is that Nevella To Go sweeteners are zero calorie, zero carbohydrate, and gluten-free.
Everyone in my family seems to have a different favorite which is fine, becuase the containers take up so little cupboard space. It’s nice that they don’t require refrigeration after opening. Instead of sweetening the whole pitcher of iced tea, I can set out our assortment of Nevella To Go and everyone can enjoy their favorite.
I took the Sweetness To Go Challenge using Nevella To Go. These handy little bottles fit perfectly in your purse or pocket, come in stevia, monk fruit, and sucralose varieties, and best of all, they’re calorie, carbohydrate, and guilt free!
