I recently was asked to try an new all natural sweetener called Sweet Simplicity. Before I tell you what I think of it....yes you could just scroll down and see it, but why would you?
Before I started the South Beach Diet I never drank diet drinks or ate "diet" desserts made with artificial sweeteners because I hate the bitter aftertaste, so when I did start SBD, I was really sensitive to it. But because I wanted to be able to make some of my favorite desserts, I tried a bunch of different brands and even found one that was pretty good, but still NOT exactly like sugar. Naturally, I was excited to give this new product a try.
Of course, I drink my coffee and tea black, so I couldn't do the drink test, but we were invited to my Aunt's yesterday and I decided to make some biscotti and bring it for dessert. And so a perfect opportunity to give Simple Simplicity a try. What can I say...everyone loved the biscotti and were really shocked to learn that I hadn't used sugar.
Sweet Simplicity is made from erythritol (a sugar alcohol naturally found in grapes, melons and pears), fructose and natural flavors. It substitutes for sugar 1 to 1 and is 100% natural. You can read all about it at the Sweet Simplicity site. But the bottom line.... it was fabulous.
- Zero calories
- Perfect for dieters (to lose weight and health restrictions like Diabetes)
- Contains no preservatives, artifical flavors or colors
