Stevia recipes and other assorted sugar free recipes

This is a list of sugar free recipes using stevia. Follow the link if you're looking for some general guidelines on cooking with stevia. You'll see that home made stevia recipes are easy if you know what you're doing! It's all about getting the amount of stevia herb right, because with such a powerful natural sweetener, less is certainly more!

 



Let's take a look at the estimated stevia and sugar conversion chart. Note that stevioside is much more powerful than ground stevia leaves, which are green in color. Also note that for very small amounts of sugar, stevioside is difficult to measure. In this case, it might be easier to use drops of liquid stevia extract instead. Also note that the strength of stevia varies greatly from one brand to another, and that you may have to adjust the chart slightly, according to your own taste and reasoning. This chart is an estimate based on 90% or more pure white stevia powder (no blend!):

 

  • 1 tablespoon of sugar = 6 to 9 drops of liquid stevia extract
  • 1 tablespoon of sugar = 1 pinch of stevia powder
  • 1 teaspoon of sugar = 2 to 4 drops of liquid stevia extract
  • 1 teaspoon of stevia powder = 2 tablespoons of ground stevia leaves
  • 1 teaspoon of stevia powder = 1 cup (=16 tbsp) of sugar (200gr)
  • 1 packet of stevia (e.g. Truvia) = 1 packet of Splenda = 1 packet of Equal = 1 packet of Sweet'N Low = 2 teaspoons of sugar
  • 1 cup of granulated Splenda = 1 teaspoon of stevia powder
  • 1/2 cup of Splenda Sugar Blend = teaspoon of stevia powder
  • 1 packet of Splenda = 4 to 5 drops of liquid stevia extract
  • 1 cup of Equal Spoonful = 1 cup of Splenda = 1 cup of sugar
  • 1 teaspoon of stevia powder = 8 teaspoons of Sweet'N Low

 

As you can see, 1 packet of any type of sweetener is pretty much equal (no pun intended) to 2 teaspoons of sugar, while both granular Splenda and Equal Spoonful equate to 1 teaspoon of highly concentrated stevioside. Sweet'N Low is a bit sweeter in bulk form in comparison with the other artificial sweeteners.

Remember when we talked about your sugar free diet, and about certain types of fruit and how they vary when it comes to glycemic index values? I found a great site with healthy smoothie recipes that goes more into detail on the power of natural sugars found in fruit. As an added bonus, you'll find that most of these smoothies contain our beloved stevia sweetener.

Be sure that you have all your equipment at hand before you start, and that you are well prepared! For most candy and chocolate recipes, we suggest you use a candy thermometer to keep constant track of the subtle but crucial temperature changes mentioned in your recipe.
