Lately, I have been having fun delving into the world of organic products. From health and beauty care items, to consumables; I have a growing urge to live a healthier lifestyle. My most recent organic find is from SweetLeaf® Stevia. I have been using stevia based sweeteners in my coffee for almost 4 months now so I am all about trying out new brands.
If you are not familiar with stevia, it is a plant based sugar substitute that come from the stevia plant. Personally, it took me a good week to adjust my taste buds from white sugar to stevia, but now it’s smooth sailing. I find the stevia plant to be very sweet in taste with a slight lingering after taste. Once I got used to it, which wasn’t hard at all, it became my #1 sugar substitute of choice. I wanted to kick most of my white sugar habit to the curb and this plant surely did.
I have tried several brands of stevia, and keep finding myself going back to the SweetLeaf ® brand. I love that they now have a couple of new products that make my life so much easier! Their Organic Stevia Packets, and especially Water Drops™ Water Enhancers are a few of my favorite products.
If you are a soda addict, or one that loves to flavor your water, you must try Water Drops™ Water Enhancers. They are my new favorite way to enjoy a glass of ice water with flair! I really love the Lemon Lime Water Drops™, but then the Peach Mango Water Drops™ are also soo good!
Water Drops™ come in 4 great flavors so there is something for everyone!
Peach Mango, Lemon Lime, Raspberry Lemonade, and Strawberry Kiwi are all perfect for the summer months. even my kids love these water enhancers, and I do not feel bad about giving them some since they are all natural, and of course sugar free!
The other latest addition to the SweetLeaf® family is their Organic Stevia Packets. These are perfect for on the go purses, diaper bags, and even for recipes. This week, apples were just $2 bag so I have been going to town making apples desserts. I felt like some Apple Crumble so I was sure to incorporate some SweetLeaf Organic Stevia Packets into the recipe. This reduced the sugar by 50%, but their is actually much less to begin with so all is good!
