Ideal Sweeteners Review

                          image

Ideal No Calorie Sweetener is different from other sugar substitutes. Finally, someone delivers on the promise sugar substitutes have made for decades! Unlike the leading no calorie sweetener, Ideal really does look, TASTE, cook and bake like sugar. In fact, the taste of Ideal® is actually PREFERRED over sugar*! With its main ingredient xylitol, Ideal maintains its sweetness in baking and cooking, AND delivers volume and texture other sweeteners do not. Ideal is great for people with diabetes and anyone trying to maintain a healthy lifestyle.

I was excited to try out the Ideal Sweeteners! Here’s the some of my favorite recipes made with all 3 types of Ideal~

This is a recipe my mom came up with and I really like them. They have the regular Ideal Sweetener in them. I like them better with the Ideal Sweetener than with Splenda.

This is a recipe I found and it doesn’t have any flour in them. I love the peanut butter and oatmeal flavor. I used regular Ideal No Calorie  Sweetener and the Ideal Brown No Calorie Sweetener.
