I’ve blogged about my love for liquid stevia before. Well, I decided to contact SweetLeaf, the company that makes my favorite toffee flavored drops. They were like, “let’s do a giveaway” and I was like, “totally, liquid stevia rocks!”. I might be paraphrasing, but I’m excited to share one of my favorite products with you.
I’m sure some of you are wondering what the heck I’m talking about. I know I was when my husband brought home a bottle of Sweet Drops and tried putting it in my water. Taken from their website: “SweetLeaf is the only chemical-free, zero-calorie, zero-carb, zero-glycemic index, 100% natural sweetener there is”. Oh and it doesn’t affect blood sugar and is gluten free. Basically, it’s a great natural alternative to sugar and artificial sweeteners. You can put it in your water, milk, smoothie and more. Use it in place of sugar in recipes, here’s a handy conversion chart to help you with replacing sugar in recipes.
Now that I’m losing weight and more active, I try to down at least 80 ounces of water a day. Drinking that much water helps me feel fuller longer, so I’m not snacking unnecessarily and I just feel healthier when I’m hydrated. Plus, it’s 115 degrees here and my body needs more water (SweetLeaf knows what I’m talking about, they are an AZ based company). The problem is that plain water bores me. I was doing those artificial sweetener packets part of the day because it was better than the trenta sized frappuccino I really wanted. I’m glad to have found an alternative and something that keeps me chugging water all day long. I’m totally obsessed with Sweet Drops!
Which are my favorite flavors of Sweet Drops, you ask? My husband got me hooked on toffee and vanilla, love them both. SweetLeaf was kind enough to send me watermelon, cola and chocolate to try out. Watermelon is my new favorite (LOVE) and cola is my husband’s new favorite. The chocolate flavor makes a yummy chocolate milk! I can’t wait to use SweetLeaf for all of my holiday baking. Besides water, I’ve used it to help sweeten homemade watermelon popsicles that my toddler loved. You can thank me later for your new-found obsession with Sweet Drops.
