Sweet'N Low Party

As the child of a diabetic mother I grew up using Sweet'N Low as our household sweetener instead of table sugar. My mother is unable to have very much sugar, but as we all know, you need some sweetness in your life! So for our cooking, drinks and now coffee I choose to use Sweet'N Low. I not only grew custom to using their product but have acquired a preference for their product. I have tried all the other new and old sugar replacement sweeteners but always go back to old faithful: Sweet 'n Low.

I was chosen to host a party on behalf of Sweet'N Low. I was supplied with complimentary products and some recipes to help assist me on their behalf. What a great experience it has been. I was able to gather 11 of my closest friends and easily talk them into having a party during our normal bible study meeting time. We all bought food and I supplied the sweetest and most refreshing drinks you can imagine! We snacked on hotdogs, chips, dips and homemade cookies but the hit of our party were to drinks.
Here are the recipes for the drinks we sipped upon:

Strawberry Granita Freeze:

  • 1 package (16 oz) frozen strawberries
  • 2 cups cold water
  • 1/4 lime juice (I used 2 fresh squeezed limes)
  • 16 packets of Sweet'N Low zero calorie sweetener
Place frozen strawberries, water and lime juice in a blender and mix until well blended (about 30 seconds). Garnish with fresh strawberries (they are out of season in here...I looked at 2 places for fresh strawberries, sorry readers).

Sunny Citrus Soda:

  • 2 cups fresh orange juice
  • 1/2 cup of fresh lime juice (4 limes)
  • 1/2 cup of fresh lemon juice (I did more with 4 lemons)
  • 24 packets of Sweet'N Low zero calorie sweetener
  • 1 1/2 liters of club soda, chilled
  • Ice
  • Lemon and lime wedges

Mix all ingredients over ice. Garnish with lemon and lime wedges or circles.

Both drinks were a hit! and didn't last long at all. All the husbands loved having a fun and sweet drink with dinner. The lemons even inspired an impromptu lemon eating competition! A bunch of them put a while wedge of lemon in their mouth and whoever ate it fastest won...rind and all! It was a hilarious memory we will always cherish and are so glad Sweet'N Low was what brought us together.

So swing by your local grocer and pick up a box of Sweet'N Low to try out these drinks for yourself! 

...Don't forget, they are husband approved
