Real Ingredients, Perfect Sweetness!

We all have our favorite treats. But not all of them are healthy for us. Enter Zing Stevia Sweetener. Stevia is an herb that is naturally sweet and has no calories – a win, win!  Using that as a base, Celebrity Chef Nick Stellino serves up some goodies, with three of the 6 ladies of Mission Makeover, under the watchful eye of Nutritionist Meryl Brandwein.

We asked the girls to send us a list of some of their favorites snacks. And they shared some good ones!  But, as expected, some of them are loaded with – let’s just say – ingredients that are not kind to our waistlines. But, not to fret – Chef Nick Stellino has their backs!

Brandi and her two growing sons love smoothies! Who doesn’t? But, sometimes they can be loaded with calories.  “No worries,” says Chef Nick Stellino, who offers up a delicious substitute: Orange Cream Smoothies, made of oranges, low-fat vanilla yogurt… and of course.. Zing™.

Uh-oh – a biggie from Nicole! One of her favorite desserts are Lemon Blueberry Scones, which her brother prepares every Sunday. (It reminds her of home. Aww!) Thankfully, Chef Nick Stellino shares a healthier version of something he believes she’ll love just as much: Crepes with Yogurt Topping. Bring it on! 

And baked goods are also music to the ears of songstress, Nikki. One of her favorites is Key Lime Pie; but she also loves cupcakes.  Yummy!  Would you believe that Chef Nick Stellino made delicious low-calorie, healthy, Red-Velvet Mini Cupcakes?  What?!

All of the recipes can be found in Zing’s recipe book. Zing™ Stevia Sweeteners are made with only real ingredients and do not contain any artificial ingredients. You can sprinkle Zing into your coffee, over fruit and other favorite foods and beverages. And, of course, the 0-calorie sweetener is great for baking! Treat yourself, to healthier options. And your family and friends will thank you for keeping their health in mind, as well.
