a-healthy-happy-hourAt Sweet’N Low®, they believe "The Sweeter, The Better®." 

Ashley Pettit Living could not agree more! As a nutritionist, (who spends 90 percent of her time slaving away concocting recipes to help you live a healthy, yet tasty life,) I have a passion for making life as yummy and guilt-free as possible. That’s why I am so pleased to share with Sweet Tooths everywhere that you can enjoy sweetness without the caloric guilt from added sugars, simply by using Sweet’N Low® as a replacement for sugar in all of your favorite recipes.

Opting for a fantastic zero-calorie sweetener like Sweet’N Low®, is a no-brainer for your diet! It has the trusted sweetness that has been loved around the world for close to 60 years and each little pink packet is as sweet as 2 teaspoons of sugar.

Use it in your favorite drink recipes this season to shave off some calories by cutting out the added sugar and swapping in zero-calorie Sweet’N Low. This is especially true when it comes to cocktails during the holiday season. Check out recipes for a sweeter, low-calorie happy hour, below!
