• Try substituting that wonderful calorie-free herb- based stevia for splenda. Look at this interesting article about splenda: http://www.womentowomen.com/healthyweight/splenda.aspx
    See web md for information on Stevia.
    Stevia works especially well as a sweetener with tangy foods like lemon and with yogurt.
    A great summer refresher is iced water with lemon, stevia and any herbal tea bag to give it color and flavor.

  • Merlyn, thanks for your suggestion regarding substituting stevia for splenda. While we are comfortable with the safety of incorporating moderate amounts of splenda in some of our recipies, stevia does have a distinctive flavor that some might enjoy or prefer when used in the H3 Fruity Sangria or other recipies that call for a sweentener.
