I’m not much of an artificial sweetener kind of gal. In fact, I do buy Splenda, but the only thing I use it in is my coffee. That’s it. I was asked to try a new sweetener called Nectresse, a natural no calorie sweetener that is derived from something called Monk Fruit. Monk fruit is a small green melon that has grown on lush vines in remote mountain regions in Asia for hundreds of years. Who knew??
So I said yes, send me some, I’ll give it a go. My family is pretty skeptical, so I secretly made over my Pear-Peach Crisp, which uses 1 cup of regular granulated sugar in the recipe. Instead, I used 1/4 cup of NECTRESSE™Sweetener plus two packets, that was a total of 26 packets, if you’re counting.
You know what? It was amazing and I couldn’t tell the difference! Not at all! Very impressed. My daughter and husband both ate a piece and loved it, cleaned their plates. I would call that a success. All the natural sweet taste without all the calories of sugar.
I’ll admit I was skeptical that I only need 1/4 of the measurement of sugar, but it truly was fabulous. NECTRESSETM Natural No Calorie Sweetener is 150 times sweeter than sugar and can be used in cooking and baking to add natural, zero calorie per serving sweetness in your favorite beverages and a delicious variety of foods.

Pear-Peach Crisp — To make this same crisp simply swap out the one cup of sugar with 1/4 cup of Necrtresse plus two packets. When the recipe says to beat the 1/4 cup sugar with the butter, that’s where you use the two packets. Then replace the step that mixes the 3/4 cup of sugar with the spice and use the 1/4 cup of Nectresse instead.
