This diabetes-friendly, Blueberry-Lemon Frozen Yogurt Kulfi is a sugar-free, healthy recipe, made using Stevia extract! This frozen yogurt kulfi tastes delicious and is a breeze to make. NuNaturals, Oregon, was kind enough to send me a variety of their amazing, gluten-free and 100% natural Stevia and Tagatose products for review and recipe development.
For this recipe, I chose NuNaturals Presweet™ Tagatose and Lemon Stevia liquid. None of these has even a hint of bitterness in them. The tagatose looks and tastes like powdered sugar and it even caramelizes similar to your ordinary sugar. The Lemon Stevia liquid is just an amazing thing to work with. The moment you open the bottle, you can smell fresh lemon and it tasted sweet! I was happy to know that all the NuStevia™ products are gluten-free, and do not contain yeast, soy, wheat, milk, synthetics, artificial colours, flavour and preservatives.
NuNaturals recently introduced a new sweetener for the first time in the United States! The Presweet™ Tagatose, for instance, will not raise blood sugar levels and is low in calories and carbs. It is derived from the naturally-occuring sweetness in milk, fruits and vegetables and it is lactose-free. It is perfect for those who want to eliminate refined sugar from their food and according to NuNaturals, it is safe for diabetics and has no unpleasant aftertaste at all.
The Stevia liquids are my favourite! I can see endless possibilities with them in my experimental kitchen. The Stevia liquids range from Lemon, Vanilla, Peppermint to the Chocolate-flavoured one. And the best part is, these liquids have pure vanilla extract or real fruit ingredients in them: no artificial ingredients at all!
