Splenda Essentials Giveaway, Strawberry Lemonade Scones

CLOSED, Splenda Essentials Giveaway, Strawberry Lemonade Scones

 

Splenda has just released a new, no calorie line of sweetners. I was totally excited to be given the opportunity to try them out. I already love any opportunity to cut down on sugar, fats, etc so I happen to also love Splenda. Yes, it is a little different than sugar, but I totally think it’s super easy to get used to. In fact, I made a delicious recipe, posted below, that did not taste the tiniest bit different. BOOYAH!

 
The Essentials line of sweetners now have fiber, antioxidants and B-Vitamins. Bet your regular sugar doesn’t boast all of that goodness!
I think we all could make a few  healthier choices in the day. Don’t you?  Love that. Splenda Essentials no calorie sweetner products are a great way for me to add a little more than just “sweetness” to foods and beverages- a small, calorie-free boost of essential vitamins or fiber in each packet or teaspoon.
 
 
What do you  do to make healthier choices for your family?
 
 

 
I made these delicious Strawberry Lemonade Scones from a recipe found on pinterest. I love that I got a little extra boost from the vitamins, no extra calories, and no lack of flavor all from using the Splenda.
 

What Are Scones?

Scones are a baked good originating in Britain.

Scones are usually made of wheat, or oatmeal with baking powder as a leavening agent and baked on sheet pans.

Are Scones a Breakfast Food?

Scones can be eaten for breakfast, tea time, or a snack any time of the day.

Scones are best when eaten warm, but can also be served cold.

How Do You Store Scones?

Store scones in an airtight container at room temperature.

Scones should be eaten within 2 days.
