On Monday, I posted a giveaway for NuNaturalsNuStevia NoCarb Blend packets (stevia extract couched in erythritol, a sugar alcohol), and today I’m offering the same company’s originalWhite Stevia Powder packets. If you’ve been looking for an alternative to frightening artificial sweeteners, look no further! Stevia is perfect for most diabetics and hypoglycemics, as well as for those who simply want to keep their sugar intake low.
This stevia blend contains a minuscule amount of maltodextrin rather than erythritol — just enough to give the stevia some bulk. It makes it much easier to pour or to use only 1/2 a packet. I compared the NoCarb blend with this original blend by dipping my fingers in them, and it seems to me that this one may taste even better. Keep in mind, though, that the amount used in a recipe is so small (only 4 packets in a batch of ice cream), this difference would be unnoticeable. One packet of this blend contains 1 carbohydrate and zero calories.
I wrote about why I love NuNaturals NuStevia and why it’s so superior to SweetLeaf, Now, and other brands here, here, and here. NuStevia doesn’t have that awful aftertaste that plagues other stevia. With this powder, I can now sweeten ice cream 100% with stevia, as in this Strawberry Coconut confection:
I will be giving away 10 packets of this NuStevia to each of 3 winners. To enter the giveaway, leave a comment below.
