STEVIA, the ideal, healthy, and affordable sweetener!

Here are my two favorite brands of Stevia "so far" in terms of flavor, purity, and price (always watch for "other" ingredients when purchasing stevia). One is liquid and the other a powder:

I tried the powder today in oatmeal for the first time, and it was yummy! My 6 yr old ate it all up without needing to add any extra sugar. Whenever we use honey or agave for oatmeal she always wants to add organic can juice sugar too, but not today. Yay! I also added a little bit of almond milk to the oatmeal in the pot after it finished cooking to make it more creamy.

I like Xylitol also as a natural sweetener because it kills bacteria, but it has to be made from 100% natural birch and it can get pricey.
