Strawberry Banana Smoothie

I’m doing the happy dance.

Can you see it?

There is a new Sweetner in town…NECTRESSE™Sweetener

I’m sure you’ll want to try it. So click here for a FREE sample of NECTRESSE™Sweetener

Nectresse is the only 100% natural ,zero calorie sweetner made from the goodness of real fruit–monk fruit.

Monk Fruit?

Monk fruit is a small green melon that has been grown in the remote mountains of Asia for hundres of years.

The real taste test came from my 7 year old, who loves to dip her strawberries in another sweetner that rhymes with ruvia, but starts with a “T” 🙂

I put both in tiny bowls and had her dip her berries in them.

She tested the Nectresse sweetener first. She said , “That’s just plain sugar”

See for yourself, Emma even snuck a sip of my smoothie when I walked away for one second!!


Then she tested the other sweetner, and wrinkled her nose up. (keep in mind its the same one she has been using all along) She said, “That one tastes funny.”

Well there you have it, from the mouth of the 7 year old…Nectresse tastes like “plain sugar”

    Your smoothie is killing me…I wanted one so badly. But my blender died on me a few days ago and I can’t make any until I get a new blender! Help!!!

    Leslie, I’ve been following your blog for a long time and LOVE it, and so I don’t want to rain on your happy dance, especially since I have a box of Nectresse in own kitchen cabinet. I only want to mention that while the monk fruit sugar might be 100%, Nectresse main ingredient is (erythritol) sugar alcohol drawn from corn, followed by sugar which most likely would be sourced from beets and highly refined. So while the monk fruit, the third ingredient on the list, is 100% natural, the rest doesn’t appear to be.

    But yes, it’s really really good, and Emma’s spot on….it tastes just like plain ol’ sugar!

    Oh dang, I never wanted to be one of those commenters…
