Sugar Substitutes That Won’t Kill You

  • Stevia is absolutely the best and safest sugar replacement out there. I use this to make an alternative ‘soda’ with plain sparkling water, a few drops of stevia & my favorite Young Living Vitality Essential Oil. Orange, Tangerine, Lemon, Spearmint are just a few flavors you can experiment with! Drop in a tsp of organic lemon juice in addition for a real treat!

  • This Vanilla Stevia is perfect to sweeten up your cup of coffee, unflavored & unsweetened yogurt, smoothies & baked goods. It’s a staple in many of my recipes!

  • What about travel? At work? This pyure stevia is the powdered Stevia that we use for “on-the-go”. You’ll find these little packets tucked in my purse, laptop bag and beach bag. You just never know when you’ll need to sweeten something up.

  • How do we get that brown sugar flavor into baked goods and sweet treats? The answer is Molasses! Just a touch will do. Make sure you’re using Organic Unsulphured Molasses. The other stuff is highly processed and can spike your blood sugar–which is a ‘no-no’ in the Keto lifestyle.
  • Xylitol is a low-digestible carbohydrate that is considered a crystalline alcohol. Their is some widespread controversy over this sugar replacement. This isn’t something I would recommend you use daily–but it does the trick on occasion when you need to round out the flavor of Stevia. Make sure you do your research on this one. Consider using “Monk Fruit” Sweetner instead.

  • Monk Fruit (luo han guo) is a safe and beneficial sugar alternative that has been used by the ancient Chinese for medicinal purposes for centuries. It’s loaded with antioxidants. It’s also available in “Golden” which lends a slight brown sugar taste.
