Stevia is the perfect sweetener for anyone wanting to limit their intake of simple carbohydrates and calories—naturally. Enjoy favorite recipes from the original editions (now lower in fat) as well as popular new recipes and quick-to-make basics.

If you are concerned about too much sugar in your diet and are reluctant to use artificial sweeteners, try these delicious low-sugar recipes, sweetened with an extract of the herb Stevia rebaudiana.

The intense flavor of stevia extract is about 200 to 300 times sweeter than sugar, with no calories and a glycemic index of 0. Used by millions of people around the world and deemed safe by doctors and scientists, stevia may be the answer to your sugar woes.
