Sweet Leaf was kind enough to send me two bottles of their Sweet Drops Liquid Stevia to try out. I got the peppermint mocha and English toffee! I had never tried them before because I thought, “what’s the point? I use plain stevia to sweeten some foods, why do I need different flavors?”
Well, they come in handy when you are wanting a sweeter guilt-free treat!
Positives: Natural, Zero Calories, Zero Sugar, Gluten Free, fun flavors, guilt-free
There are many more positives to the Sweet Drops than negatives! There are so many different flavor options, and you don’t have to worry about junk ingredients.
Negatives: Mild bitter aftertaste (because they use real stevia extract), Cost (but, you do get 288 servings in one bottle!).
Don’t let the size of the bottle fool you. There are plenty of servings in one bottle. Even though the price tag is higher than plain stevia, it may be worth it for those of you who like more flavor to your coffee, or sweet treats.
If you are using this in coffee, start with 3 drops, and stir. Then, add 2 more drops, stir and see how it tastes. You can easily add too many drops and make it too sickeningly sweet. I like to use about 3-4 drops per cup of coffee, and it is just enough to get a hint of flavor. And make sure to stir before tasting. I found out that if you don’t stir your beverage, the flavor doesn’t distribute and sits at the bottom of the mug of coffee.
Other Ideas for Sweet Drops: Add to a smoothie, or mixed drink. Add to a sweet potato instead of brown sugar. Add to tea, or even add to plain yogurt! I could see using the peppermint mocha drops for baking some festive cookies.
