Natvia – A Sweet Alternative to Sugar

Don’t like the bitter after taste of Stevia? You don’t have to put up with it any longer!

I have spoken a lot about Stevia and you can see some of my recipes that use stevia here and here. When I tell people to consider using Stevia as a sugar replacement, the main complaint I hear is “but Stevia has a bitter after taste!” I have learnt to live with it, but I know it does put a lot of people off using it. Well, I am pleased to tell you I have found a product that is fructose free, artificial sweetener free, tastes like sugar AND there is no bitter after taste! How great is that! The trick is Natvia uses the freshest tips of Stevia plants and then blend it with eyrthritol – don’t worry eythritol it is a naturally occurring nectar and is fructose free!

So there you have it, no more excuses for eating sugar!

With Natvia you really can pretend you are eating sugar – Well, that’s if you want to! One spoonful of Natvia equals 1 spoonful of sugar – so no more guess work like with other brands of Stevia. Plus one teaspoon has .6 calories and you know how many calories sugar has? 16!

And just to inspire you here are some pretty photos and a recipe
