This post is part of the SPLENDA® 365 SWEET SWAPS ™ blogger program by McNeil Nutritionals, LLC. and The Motherhood, who sent me products and compensated me for my time. Opinions, experiences and photos shared here are my own, and I hope you enjoy them.
There is a product in my house that I literally use every single day, generally all day long. As an avid coffee and tea drinker, I break open the packages of SPLENDA® at least 10 times a day. While I am getting my hydration and my caffeine fix, I am not getting the insane calories from sugar that can lead to the expansion of my waistline. It is expanded enough as it is. In addition, I really love the sweetness that SPLENDA® gives to every drink I make.
Did you know that the average American consumes 22 teaspoons of sugar a day? It may not seem too bad until you learn that we are only supposed to consume 6 teaspoons a day! So to almost quadruple our intake is just insane. It is a sugar addiction that I, for one, am trying hard to kick. SPLENDA® products are the number one product I go to to satisfy my sweet tooth without putting me into a sugar coma!
I swap sugar daily in my tea and coffee with SPLENDA®, as you know. But did you know I also bake with SPLENDA®? Their array of products include sugar blends that are awesome full sugar replacements in cakes, cookies, puddings and more. In fact, next week I plan on bringing you some of my all time favorite “sweet” recipes showing my #SweetSwap with SPLENDA®. I can guarantee – because I use these all the time already – that you will not be able to tell that you swapped out. SPLENDA® has mastered the sugar blend in the SPLENDA® Sugar Blend* and SPLENDA® Brown Sugar Blend* (*both contain real sugar blended with SPLENDA®).
So come back and see what I create!
