I'm always looking for ways to eat healthier without sacrificing taste, particularly when it comes to my sweet tooth. So when I got a chance to enjoy and share Zing Zero Calorie Stevia Sweetener through Moms Meet, I was most glad to.
Iced tea party time!
I opted for some standard tea-party fare, like cucumber sandwiches.
Very simple: cut the bread into shapes with cookie cutters, spread each slice with a spread of cream cheese mixed with dill, and add sliced cucumber. I used the same cutter on the latter for better presentation.
Also, homemade cranberry scones, another classic.

And of course, two flavors of fresh-brewed iced tea: regular and raspberry-pomegranate, the perfect backdrop for our good friend, Zing.
The favorite tea was the raspberry-pomegranate, but the winner was the Zing.
People raved about how it tasted, and were very happy to read the ingredients...both of them. Yep, just stevia leaf extract and dextrose. That's it. Its fine texture combines quickly with even cold beverages, which trumps a lot of its kind. I myself was surprised at the total lack of aftertaste, which is my primary issue with sugar alternatives. Even my teenager liked it, and she's a complete sweet freak.
It's easily available, too, in stores like Target...and several folks said they actually did pick some up right away. I did my part to improve the world. All is well.
But seriously...this is great stuff. Even if you've had issues with things like this in the past, give Zing a whirl. You just might be surprised. And the price is right, too.
You can follow Zing on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.
I received products from Zing via Moms Meet for testing and sharing purposes. My opinions and rampant sweet tooth are my own.
