Splenda--The No Calorie Sweetener! {A Winey Mommy Review}

At the beginning of the year I vowed to myself and my family that I would stop making so many baked goods for us at home. I noticed that I wasn't losing weight--and then it hit me. Look at the cookies, the brownies, banana or pumpkin bread that are constantly filling up my home. While I have gotten much, much better at baking less, there are still occasions that we want something sweet to eat.

Insert Splenda and their granulated no calorie sweetener. Not only can you now use it to bake with, but they have an online Splenda Tastebook I consider this a genius idea for a couple of reasons--I can now use their sweetener to bake with thus saving me hundreds of calories and I can also browse for delicious recipes to try out. Their recipes are also rated--so if you're interested in trying one out you can read the reviews and ratings first. I hate trying a new recipe only to find out that I hated it after it's been baked.

The Splenda Tastebook is filled with many different recipes to satisfy what craving you are having--pumpkin cake with cream cheese frosting, vegetarian chili, cream cheese stuffed apple bread...I could go on and on an on with the variety of recipes that they have on there!

Celebrity mom chef Katie Brown has teamed up with Splenda  to give America healthy eating tips, tips on leading a healthier life and also shares her favorite recipes that she uses Splenda for. I love getting tips and tricks for healthier eating--anything that makes a healthy meal taste delicious is a winner in my book.

Next time you're having a craving check out the Splenda Tastebook and try to find a delicious recipe. There are 100's to choose from!

“I wrote this review while participating in a blog tour campaign by Mom Central on behalf of Splenda and received products necessary to facilitate my candid review. In addition, a donation was made in my name to the Meals on Wheel organization to thank me for taking the time to participate.”

I'm on Atkins and I make my favorite New York cheesecake using Splenda instead of sugar and I can credit it with keeping me "on the wagon".

I DEFY anyone to tell my sugar free lo-carb cheesecake from the real thing! Ooops...getting edgy...better go grab a bite. LOL
