As I don’t use sugar for my baking I often use stevia which is the healthy option. The stevia plant is incredibly sweet and also incredibly good for you. The leaf is 30 times sweeter than sugar while extracts are 300-400 times sweeter. The best stevia will, therefore, be the one that retains some whole food value and is water-based. Liquid forms will be less processed. Go here to learn How to Get the Best Stevia Without the Bitterness.
Millions of people are using packaged Almond Milk because they believe it is a ‘healthy milk alternative.’ I make my own almond milk which is easy to do as well as affordable and way better for the environment.
