The sweeter the better sweet n low sampling

Crowdtap picked me for their Sweet ‘N Low sampling .

I personally don’t like to drink my calories so was excited to try out some of their “skinny” versions of some yummy drinks. Crowdtap sent 6 recipes to try but sweet ‘n low has a big list on their website .

I don’t think I have used sweet n low before so was nice to have to opportunity to see what it was about. I mean you do see sweet n low at every diner.

I bought some flax meal and was trying to figure out some things to make with it. I ended up finding a recipe for a 2 minute muffin.

1/4 cup flax meal
1 packet of sweet n’ low
1 egg
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
Drizzle of oil

Mix together in microwaveable bowl
Put in microwave for 2 minutes

Options: adding dried fruit (I used raisins) , nuts, chocolate chips, splash of vanilla extract

My friend put sugar on some bananas and strawberries .I would eat them plain but I tried them and try were tasty. Good if you want dessert but not all the calories . So last night I wanted something sweet and sprinkled some sweet n’ low . Delish!!

This was tasty would be good with alcohol too. It did have a slight after taste I believe from the sweet n low.

2 cups cold water

Thinking about making strawberry lemonade ,a blueberry lemonade, maybe even a daquari with sweet n low next…. stay tuned.

Was happy to be part of this sampling. I don’t think I’ve ever had sweet n low . Will I buy it again? Probably not. One or two packets was ok but the more sweet n low it has an after taste for me.
Plus I normally drink water , juice,smoothies (with no added sugar) and almond milk. I don’t add a lot of sugar to my food I make. I also am not watching my calorie intake, So it would be a waste for me to buy. I would recommend it to my coffee drinker friends or friends watching their calories though.
