Memorial Day - The Low-Sugar Way

***Disclosure-Sample product was received.  All opinions stated are my own, honest opinions based on my personal experience.
For many of us, the anticipation of Memorial Day conjures images of hot dogs, popsicles, lemonade and pie. But as the official kick-off to beach season, it’s not the ideal time to derail your diet with high-calorie treats.

This Memorial Day, incorporate NECTRESSE™ Natural No Calorie Sweetener into your holiday menu to cut back on sugar, calories and guilt. NECTRESSE, made from monk fruit extract, is perfect for sweetening your favorite beverages, savory sauces and dressings, homemade jams, desserts and so much more.

Here are some recipes from NECTRESSE for your Memorial Day weekend parties and get2gethers:
 red, white and blue Mixed Berry Yogurt Parfait
refreshing Pomegranate Iced Green Tea
summer-appropriate Carrot Pineapple Slaw
all-American Apple Cranberry Pie.

I can't wait to try this recipes this weekend for my family.  We have all been on a healthy kick this year.  I am trying to stay away from sugar but am glad the NECTRESSE as an option for us to try.  I def don't want to ruin all the hard work I have been doing in my Crossfit and Bikram Yoga classes all in one weekend.

Have a safe weekend!  Happy Memorial Day Weekend to all of you!
