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.

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.
