Splenda Essentials No Calorie Sweetener Review and Giveaway

I LOVE LOVE LOVE baked goodies…. Cakes, cookies, brownies and cupcakes… mmmmm… cupcakes! But unfortunately these usually come with a high price in the form of calories.  You know the saying…

A moment on the lips is a lifetime on the hips.

Ahhh – but you don’t need to sacrifice anymore because you can keep on baking those yummy treats with Splenda® the no calorie sweetener.  And now Splenda® has introduced a new line of products to make everything you sweeten better for you called the  SPLENDA®ESSENTIALS Sweetener Products! It’s the same great taste you love,plus a small boost of healthy nutrients-B vitamins,antioxidants or fiber.

Recently I had the opportunity to try the New Splenda® Essentials No Calorie Sweetener for all of my sweetening and baking needs.

There are three different kinds to choose from and come in either packets (for your coffee etc) or in a 14oz bag:

  1. Splenda Essentials with B vitamins.
  2. Splenda Essentials with antioxidants (provides added essential vitamins C and E).
  3. Splenda Essentials with 1 gram of fibre.
I tried the sweetener packets by adding them to my oatmeal, my protein smoothie and to my coffee.  To be honest I could detect a difference in my coffee, but not in my oatmeal.. I also added a packet to my protein smoothie.  I don’t normally sweeten up my smoothie – but the 1 packet of Splenda really made did make it taste better.
I must admit I’m not much of a baker because typically I find most recipes too complicated for me to follow, but I found a TON of great recipes on the Splenda® Essentials website.  There are salad recipes, dessert recipes and even breakfast recipes.  Oh! And if you’e looking for a really healthy start to your day, here’s a link to my healthy Strawberry/Banana/Spinach Protein Smoothie.

The kind folks at Splenda have generously provided me with:

 One (1) Splenda® Essentials Prize pack to giveaway!

    I liked Splenda on Facebook.

    I love to bake, and what I bake, I love to share with my family. With my mom and grandma being diabetic, and my dad being borderline, I use Splenda in things I cook for them. They prefer it to sugar, anyway.
