Nectresse™ Sweetener is from the makers of Splenda®Sweeteners. It is an all natural sweetener made from Monk Fruit extract. It is 100% natural and zero calories per serving.
I decided to test out Nectresse two ways, in my morning coffee (I currently use Splenda®) and in one of my favorite summer recipes, Blackberry and Cream Cheese Mini Turnovers. I was very pleased with Nectresse™ and truly could not tell the difference in how my coffee or turnovers usually taste.
I am sharing my Recipe for the Blackberry and Cream Cheese Mini turnovers below. They are great with the sugar substitute or real sugar, so definitely give it a try!
Blackberry and Cream Cheese Mini Turnovers
Get the recipe after the jump:
4 frozen puff pastry sheets, slightly thawed
1 pkg. light cream cheese softened
9 packages of NECTRESSE™Sweetener (one packet equals 2 teaspoons of sugar- so if you wanted to use real sugar, use about 1/3 cup)
1/2 tsp. vanilla extract
1.5 pints fresh blackberries
½ cup powdered sugar
2-3 tsp. milk
Just as an fyi, Nectresse™ is available in both single-serve packets and a larger canisters with for sprinkling, pouring or spooning.
