Stevia is a super sweet zero calorie herb that does not affect your blood sugar or insulin secretions.
In fact, studies have shown that stevia actually improves cellular insulin sensitivity which lowers the risk of diabetes and high blood pressure.
I love using stevia powder as a sweetener in my desserts.
Taste wise stevia powder is super sweet with a bitter undertone; 1 tsp of stevia powder is equivalent to 1 cup of sugar in sweetness.
When you are buying stevia it is really important to look for a green stevia powder which has been made by simply dehydrating stevia leaves.
Stevia gets a bad rap because there are tons of brands that contain fillers so it can be substituted one for one with sugar.
Jesse Lane Wellness Cookbook: Healthy Dairy Free Desserts
I use stevia powder in some of the desserts in my new cookbook Jesse Lane Wellness Cookbook: Healthy Dairy Free Desserts!
My new cookbook contains over 30 healthy dessert recipes that are free from processed sugar.
Some of the other recipes use sweeteners like maple syrup, coconut sugar, honey and many more alternative sweeteners.
I actually have a whole chapter dedicated to alternative sweeteners and how to use them in your baking.
