Let me start by saying I'm not big on artificial sweeteners or zero calorie products so I was skeptical to try out Monk Fruit in The Raw. I was pleasantly surprised that this was an option that I could incorporate in my baking and beyond! What I liked most is that it didn't have any sort of chemical aftertaste I am used to with other brands. The Monk Fruit In The Raw Baker’s Bag measures cup for cup, just like sugar and can be used to replace all of the sugar in beverages, sauces, and dressings.

Try to substitute half of the sugar in your favorite baking recipes with Monk Fruit In The Raw. You can also visit Monk Fruit In The Raw for recipes here.
