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!

Baby Cheesecakes using stevia sweetener

Baby Cheesecakes w/ Berries (Crustless)


2 packages of cream cheese
2 eggs
Stevia Extract (2 tsp) or 8 packets
1 tablespoon ground cinnamon (optional)
1 cup of berries (I used a frozen berry medley from Trader Joe's)


•Mix together cream cheese, stevia extract, and eggs until smooth. Stir in berries of your choice.
•Pour batter into muffin tin. Bake in preheated oven. 350 degrees for 25 minutes.

What are your tips for making desserts a little more mindful! Please share!
