OK…seriously, I’m IN LOVE. This stuff is delicious. It’s so sweet but not over powering. My husband and I first tried NECTRESSE™Sweetener with our morning coffee. We both loved the sweet flavor it added to the coffee. Alice wanted to give it a try as well. I didn’t have anything for her to add NECTRESSE™ to, so I made her a “sweet water” using one package of NECTRESSE™ and she loved it!
I decided I wanted to try it in a recipe. I wasn’t sure how much I would need, so I hid the NECTRESSE™ in a cabinet. My husband was upset that he couldn’t use the NECTRESSE™ in his morning coffee until I knew how much I would need. I thought to make Strawberry Shortcake using NECTRESSE™ instead of sugar. This is a simple Betty Crocker/Bisquick recipe that normally calls for 1/2 cup of sugar. It is the BEST Strawberry Shortcake recipe EVER!!! NECTRESSE™ being 150x sweeter than sugar, I used half that amount.
quart (4 cups) strawberries, sliced
cups Original Bisquick® mix
tablespoons butter or margarine, melted
Heat oven to 425°F. Mix strawberries and 1/4 cup NECTRESSE™ in a bowl and cool in the fridge.
Stir Bisquick mix, milk, 3 tablespoons NECTRESSE™ and the butter in bowl until a soft dough forms. Drop dough by 6 large spoonfuls onto an ungreased cookie sheet.
Bake 10 to 12 minutes or until golden brown.
Cut warm shortcakes in half; fill and top with strawberries and top with cool whip.
It came out perfect. Delicious and without any additional calories.
Let me tell y’all about NECTRESSE™sweetener. It’s a 100% natural sweetener made from monk fruit. The monk fruit extract is blended with other natural sweeteners to create a delicious no calorie sweetener that tastes like sugar.
My mom is a diabetic and it’s wonderful to find a no calorie no sugar sweetener to use for her. She was very impressed with the strawberry shortcakes Alie and I made and let me know that her blood sugar stayed in the normal range. This makes me very happy. It’s great to know I can use NECTRESSE™ in place of sugar in recipes now and let my mom indulge in sweetness that wont send her blood sugar sky rocking up!
