New Sweetener Chart!

 

Today's blog post comes as a reader request.

I was so pleased to see this response to the cooking substitution chart we made a while back, and I knew I had to get moving and create a resource to answer her questions...

Hi Judy,
Very nice, thank you!
If you ever expand the sweetener alternative selections, please consider adding Stevia. One could probably do a whole infographic on sugar substitutes, and include things such as heat stable/can you cook or bake with it, etc.
Also I’ve notice quite a variance in sweetening power. Truvia, 3/4 tsp. = 2 tsp. sugar, whereas with Publix Stevia, 1/2 tsp. = 2 tsp. sugar. Perhaps one could include agave and other sweetener options.
I tried Stevia in my favorite chocolate sorbet with poor results, but haven’t tried tweaking it. If you have a frozen yogurt or sorbet recipe with a sugar alternative, please share.
I tried your chocolate pudding with tofu, and enjoyed it. Next time I think I will try with Stevia.
Thanks again!
Have a wonderful week.
