Contest-Product Review: Nu Naturals Stevia / GF Dairy Free Sugar Free Rugelach

I was excited to receive some more samples from NuNaturals Stevia products. PLUS I am so excited that they want to do a giveaway contest for my readers! 4 winners here folks, so be sure to enter (rules below)!

I have done a review of their products before and talked about how I feel about aspartame products that are in my opinion not a good alternative. Check it out here http://mommasays.net/1142/product-review-nunaturals-stevia-products/.

I just love these products because they provide an excellent opportunity to add distinct flavor to your favorite dish or beverage without the guilt of calories. Hello! Sounds good doesn’t it? Well they ARE good!

They are perfect for those individuals fighting the challenges of Diabetes & obesity plus those looking to reduce or eliminate refined sugar from their kid’s diet.

I try where I can to reduce sugar from my kiddos foods and my father is diabetic so I use alternative sweeteners whenever I get a chance. These stevia products do not have any aftertaste like other stevia products I have tried. That is the best thing because kiddos know when something is different and they do not like aftertastes! You are safe with being sneaky when cooking and baking with NuNaturals products.

 

These products are far superior than any other Flavored Stevia products available. Some Mfg. use artificial flavorings to produce their stevia products, but not NuNaturals. Their most popular Vanilla Stevia Liquid  is made with PURE Vanilla Extract, their NEW products use REAL Lemon/Orange/Peppermint ingredients, so you can feel that your using the best quality products for your family. When using the the flavored liquid stevia you can taste it bursting with great flavor and  you won’t believe how good they smell when you open the bottle, it is truly a treat for the senses! Put a few drops into your teas or add it to carbonated water to give your kiddos a healthy alternative to sodas with yummy flavors they will enjoy! PLUS, If you like Chocolate, you’ll love this liquid chocolate stevia. Imagine making a simple frosting out of cream cheese and adding chocolate flavor with no guilt or adding to your morning joe and having the mocha with all the pleasure and no sugar calories! Possibilities are endless.

One new product that I was excited to use not only for the health for my diabetic father but because of the ease of using is the PreSweet Tagatose product that offers a 1:1 ratio for sugar sweetness levels when preparing delicious healthy recipes. This product is perfect for baking it browns like sugar and will not raise blood sugar levels!

4 oz  GF, dairy free cream cheese ( I used  Go Veggie brand)

I also used  1/4 C  NuNaturals More Fiber Baking Blend + 1 TBL coconut oil also added 2 tsp PreSweet NuNaturals Tagatose  (in place of using 1/4 C sugar substitute stevia or tagatose (1:1 ratio) )

1. combine all dry ingredients set aside

    I use Stevia for baking have not tried the liquids yet and would love to. I am pre-diabetic so sugar is a no-no for me but being singled out while everyone else gets goodies is tough so this is a win for our family :)
