Are you looking for a natural and organic alternative sweetener?? I had the opportunity to try Hey Shuga! and Lil’ Shuga! and I think you are really going to enjoy these products! Hey Shuga! is all natural and made from cane sugar, while Lil’ Shuga is made from a blend of Stevia Leaft Extract and Cane Sugar.
What is Hey Shuga!
“Hey Shuga! is an all organic, sugar cane syrup. The convenience of a liquid makes it perfect for hot & cold beverages, as topping for fresh fruit, an addition to your morning cereal, an ingredient for baking, an enhancer to your Friday night cocktail, and much more… Soon to be available in natural Vanilla, Hazelnut, Maple and Irish Cream flavors.”
What is Lil’ Shuga!
“Lil’ Shuga! is a natural blend of Stevia leaf extract and Cane sugar. The result is a delicious blend that is two times as sweet as sugar, allowing you to use less for the same amount of sweetness. Maintain the health benefits of Stevia, but with the familiar taste of cane sugar! Soon to be available in natural Vanilla, Hazelnut, Maple and Irish Cream flavors.”
Hey Shuga! was generous enough to send me samples of both of their products. After trying out both Hey Shuga! and Lil’ Shuga! for a week, I am in love!! This time
of year I drink a lot of hot tea and find that this liquid sweetener is absolutely perfect for hot drinks! It immediately dissolves into my beverage and lends a perfectly sweet undertone. I also tried it out on my oatmeal in the mornings. It was a perfect substitute for brown sugar, honey or agave syrup. You can even use it for baking (substitue 3/4 cup Hey Shuga! for every cup of sugar).
Why do I love Hey Shuga! and Lil’ Shuga!?
My favorite thing about this sweetener is it’s delicate sweet flavor, somewhat like a mild honey and more delicate than a granulated sugar. It has a decadent consistency: somewhere between maple syrup and honey. It can be used anywhere that sugar, honey, maple syrup, corn syrup or agave syrup is used, even baking!
Lil’ Shuga is a more concentrated version of Hey Shuga!. Therefore, I can sweeten my items with half the amount of product AND half the calories! It tastes just as a delcious as the original product and is all natural. There is absolutely no ”artifical sweetener” taste because Stevia is used (an natural extract from the Stevia plant).
Both Hey Shuga! and Lil’ Shuga are made with no artificial flavors or colors and no preservatives. They are GMO free, Gluten-free, 100% organic and Vegan friendly.
