One of the keys to my weight loss in the past has been no calorie sweetener. I use it in foods such as oatmeal, cereal, and in the iced tea I'm slightly addicted to these days. I use a lot of Splenda when I'm cooking and baking, but was excited to try the new NECTRESSE™Sweetener.
While I could have baked up some cupcakes or made my low calorie tapioca, I decided to give the NECTRESSE™ a true test. I decided to use it in my iced tea. I knew that I would be able to truly get a taste for how well it sweetened.
I loved that it has zero calories per serving and I was intrigued that it is the only 100% natural sweetener made from monk fruit extract. It sounded different than anything I had tried in the past. I'm trying to teach W to try things at least once, so I figured I could do the same!
So… I was ready to make my favorite Creamy Iced Tea with NECTRESSE™.
Creamy Iced Tea
What you need:
- Glass of iced tea (I like to use my big 16 ounce cup)
- 2 Tbs. creamer (sometimes I use a flavored creamer like vanilla or sweet cream)
- NECTRESSE™ to sweeten to your liking (I used 3 packets for 16 ounces of tea)
What you do:
It's simple! Pour your iced tea and add your creamer and sweetener. Stir and enjoy.
I know it's simple but I absolutely adore it! It makes my iced tea taste a bit more heavenly. The NECTRESSE™ worked great as a replacement for my usual Splenda. I used fewer packets and felt the taste was much more like regular sugar! Oh, and it also dissolved quickly when I was stirring. That is not something I find in every sweetener. But it's a quality I definitely appreciate!
I ran out of my NECTRESSE™ sample way too quickly! You can get your own FREE sample of NECTRESSE™Sweetener to try it for yourself!
