Thank you everyone for visiting and entering this contest and I hope to see you all back real soon--lots of giveaways still in progress and lots more to come!
As you all know ever since I was diagnosed with Type 2 Diabetes I have been on a constant search for foods that won’t cause my sugar levels to spike. What you might not know is I still have a SWEET TOOTH which drives me crazy-I simply crave sweets especially since I really should not be eating them anymore. I walk through the stores at this time of year and all that Halloween candy is drawing me over and bringing tears to my eyes because I can not buy it-----Well if you do not have diabetes, and you have a sweet tooth like mine- then you really should watch your sugar intake so you don’t end up with it. And if you are trying to lose weight---sugar is unfortunately the enemy!
When I heard the NuNaturals was looking for bloggers to try out their products and they were diabetic friendly I jumped on it. I received 9 2oz bottles of their NuStevia liquids in various flavors, a 100 pack box of the NuStevia Individiual serving size, 2 oz of Lo Han Liquid and 1 lb of the presweet Tagatose powder.
“ NuNaturals Stevia products are the sweet delicious way to reduce sugar and carbohydrates in your diet! These superior dietary supplements are the best tasting Stevia products available. The products are 100% Natural, DO NOT contain Aspartame, Saccharin, Sucralose, High Fructose Corn Syrup or any artificial ingredients/colors. The NuStevia products are FOS free which eliminates potential digestive problems AND they are Gluten Free, and contain no Soy, Yeast, Wheat, Milk, synthetics—they are not genetically modified. These all natural products are from sustainable agriculture assisting in making a healthy Earth”
The first thing I did was use one of the individual packs in my coffee—YUM—this is the best Stevia I have ever tasted-and I only needed one pack. Then I tried the Nustevia Vanilla (alcohol free) in my second cup of the day. These liquids come in a bottle with a dropper which makes it easy-I put in three ½ dropperfuls—loved the taste but think I might actually only need 2 dropperfuls. I have also tried The Nustevia Cherry Vanilla liquid. I added it (3 - ½ dropperfuls) to a 16 oz glass of plain seltzer—HEAVEN.
Well, so far what they say about the Stevia products in the promotional papers they sent me was TRUE. they also sent a slew of recipes! I kept looking at the tagatose and wondered how I could try it out—and what it was exactly—I hit the recipes. Now I am not a baker and truthfully have never totally followed a recipe in my life. But I figured I could make a variation of the sugar free apple pie.
I had 6 mini pie tins, some apples that were given to me by a friend who picked them off a tree. I purchased a can of Pam-butter flavor and biscuit dough that can be rolled out whichever way you want (one of those in the refrigerator section). I did not roll out the dough—I simply cut it into slices—pushed the slice into the Pam sprayed tin so the bottom and some of the sides was covered. Diced up an apple—put some into each on top of the dough (some had more some less). Now here is where I actually semi followed the recipe—making the sauce. I figured that since I was not making a 9” pie I would halve the recipe—In a saucepan I melted ¼ stick of butter (no salt) then added-approx 1 ½ tablespoons of flour and 2 ½ tablespoons of the Tagatose powder—whisked it all together and spooned some over each of the apple filled mini tins. I still had some dough left so I cut it into six strops and put a strip over the center of each of the times. I put them into an approx 392 degree oven and let bake for I think ½ hour—I actually smelled when it was finished. What I ended up making was apple filled biscuits and they were delicious-I could not tell that this was sugar free!! Sorry, no pictures--one of these days--You can find all recipes here.
So what is this Tagatose—I asked and this is what they said
“This ALL-NATURAL products is derived from fruit, vegetables, and dairy products but no allergens from the dairy.”
The Lo Han liquid (derived from Monk Fruit) is the only one I have yet to try—but I will be soon!
