I have been experimenting with stevia extract to make desserts! Stevia extract is a sweetener that can be used in place of sugar. This sugar substitute is actually from the stevia plant, so it's natural! It is a great way to get a sweet taste without using refined sugar. It is also calorie-free (which is a nice perk!).

I wanted to share with everyone my latest dessert experiment!
