Apricot Spritzer | "0" Calorie & "0" Carbs

I have a habit. I collect SweetLeaf Liquid Stevia flavors like some women collect shoes and like a shoe-aholic I am not always thinking straight when I make a purchase. Take this Apricot Nectar flavored SweetLeaf Liquid Stevia for example. It sounded delicious, but when I got home I had no idea what I would do with it!

This week I finally broke into the bottle. My usual routine after a long day is to enjoy, in peace and quiet, a glass of sparkling water laced with a few drops of SweetLeaf Vanilla Creme Liquid Stevia. The other night I changed things up a bit (watch out!) and used the Apricot Nectar flavor in place of the Vanilla Creme. Was it ever refreshing! And with a twist of lime and crushed mint, even better!

Stevia is an all-natural "dietary supplement" that has been used as a sweetener for centuries [here's a little background on why the FDA, unfortunately, prohibits it from being labelled a "sweetener"]. SweetLeaf™ claims to be the only 100%-natural, zero-calorie, zero-carbohydrate, zero-alcohol, zero-chemical, zero-glycemic index stevia sweetener available.

SweetLeaf Stevia is available at natural food stores, some grocery stores, and from Amazon and many other online retailers.
