SPLENDA , recipes, special offers and contest too

SPLENDA ®......... I am an AVID Splenda user , and often carry it in my purse and pockets when traveling or going out because I love to have it in my coffee. I don't use Splenda for baking but otherwise use it to cook with and in my beverages. I have a cookbook now thanks to its called the "TASTEBOOK" I found a recipe that appealed to me being from N'awlins called BANANA FOSTER SMOOTHIE!
  • 2 packets SPLENDA® Flavors for Coffee, Caramel
  • ¾ cup reduced fat milk
  • 1 tablespoon orange juice
  • ¼ teaspoon banana extract
  • 1 (2 inch)slice of banana

  1. Mix all ingredients, except banana, in a microwaveable bowl or cup. Heat in microwave 50 to 60 seconds or until hot. Pour into a blender and add banana. Cover tightly and blend 15 to 20 seconds or until banana is pureed. Pour into serving glass and serve immediately.


Serving Size: 1 (7 fl oz) drink.

It was GREAT and was perfect for a quick healthy snack in the a.m. and had the extra "punch" I needed to get kickstarted for the day but it also get me "CRAVING" that sinful dish I call CAJUN NANA PUDDING............. a recipe that many of you have requested.......

While I loved the tastebook and also would love to read the SPLENDA® No Calorie Sweetener Recipe Collection book that you can get free when purchasing the BROWN SUGAR blend on the Splenda site.... HERE

My daughters will tell you that they learned to cook the HARD WAY because "mama" never had a recipe for much of anything , she just made it and couldn't tell ya how she did! Most of my recipes are "in my head" and I am going to try and give you the best ones , one by one! I am taking pictures to remind me of "steps" to write down LOL and I hope I don't miss something by doing it this way. Hopefully , I will have printable versions of the recipes I am sharing with you in the near future.
