We all need some sweetness in our lives. Unfortunately, we also tend to be a bit over-exposed to one particular sugar in our modern diets. When I refer to ‘sugar-free’ in recipes, I’m referring to cane sugar. This overly processed sugar is completely devoid of nutritional value. I use healthier options that have nutritional advantages such as fresh and dried fruit, stevia, maple syrup, honey, coconut sugar and agave. All alternatives have their pros and cons, so I like to mix it up where possible. Enjoy, sugar babies!.
