NECTRESSE Sweetener --
{Here's the Scoop!}

This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of Nectresse™ Sweetener for SocialSpark. All opinions are 100% mine.

Remember the lemonade I made last week?  Mmmmmm.... it may be time for another batch, but that's beside the point.  I mentioned that I had used a new natural no-calorie sweetener called Nectresse and I was really impressed so I wanted to give you a little bit more information about it.
We've been trying to cut down on our sugar consumption as a family since we have a kiddo with type 1 diabetes.  The only problem?  We all have a major sweet tooth!  I've been hesitant to use too many artificial sweeteners because that just doesn't seem . . . natural. {duh!}  When I heard about Nectresse, I was excited to give it a shot.  NECTRESSE™Sweetener ,from the makers of Splenda, is a 100% natural sugar substitute made from monk fruit extract.  In fact, it is the only 100% natural sweetener  made from fruit.
NECTRESSE is 150 times sweeter than sugar and can be used in cooking and baking -- love that!  Lisa Ling is the brand's spokesperson.  Here's what she has to say about it:
I thought I'd share my lemonade recipe again, adapted for using Nectresse instead of sugar.  I really recommend you give it a try, even if you don't have health issues you are concerned about.  My family couldn't even tell the difference!!  They drank this lemonade faster than any soda I've ever brought into our home.  That's pretty high praise!  {I know, I know.  I shouldn't be bringing soda into our home.  Maybe now I won't be so tempted . . . }
1.  Juice 8-10 lemons to make 1-1/2 C. juice.  My bag of lemons didn't give me quite enough juice and the ones on my tree outside are not ripe, so I added about 1/4 C. of bottled lemon juice.  That's probably a big no-no if you're a lemonade purist, but it turned out great in a pinch.
2.  In a large pitcher, mix lemon juice and 1 C. sugar or sugar substitute.  I only used 1/2 C. of Nectresse and it was PLENTY sweet, but still tart like good lemonade should be.  I liked that it was refreshing and not at all syrupy like some lemonade.
3.  Add 5-1/2 C. lukewarm water and stir until the sugar is dissolved.  Chill it until it's icy-cold and enjoy!  Or throw some crushed ice in a glass and enjoy immediately.
Don't just take my word for it, though.  You can get a FREE sample of NECTRESSE™Sweetener  and see for yourself.  I'm excited to try a baked good with it for Family Night treat on Monday -- I'll let you know how it goes!
