How To Use Stevia In Baking

At Crave Stevia, we began our quest looking for a healthy alternative to sugar, which brought us to a special plant found in South America. Stevia is nature’s secret ingredient for cutting down the sugar, but still indulging in a little sweetness.

At Crave Stevia we pride ourselves on harvesting pure stevia extract that is 300 times the sweetness of sugar but with zero calories, so therefore you naturally need less! For a bag of pure powdered stevia, the ratio is for one cup of sugar, you would substitute 1 teaspoon of stevia. If you are using a bag of baking stevia, 1/3 cup plus 1 1/2 tablespoons are equal to 1 cup of sugar.

Step Up Your Frosting

Homemade frosting is usually preferred when baking cakes and is typically made with cream cheese and powdered sugar. To reduce your sugar intake, but still have delicious frosting, simply substitute your powdered sugar for our Crave stevia powder for sugar-free baking!

Upgrade Your Whipped Cream

Whipped cream is another ingredient frequently used in traditional baking, but unfortunately, it contains a lot of unnecessary sugar. When making your own whipped cream, add stevia drops to your heavy whipping cream to create a delicious sugar-free whipped topping for your dessert!
