NuNaturals Review

I got a lot of stuff in the mail from NuNaturals to try and out. It's all so good.

Their newest product is PreSweet Tagatose.


It's a natural substitute to sugar and has probiotics in it. They help boost the immune system. I love it because I go through spurts of having tummy issues. Probiotics help boost my immune system. This is a new product to the US. It's sweetener found in milk, fruits and vegetables. It is 92% as sweet as sugar. It contains only 6 calories per serving.

I also got 100 packets of White Stevia Powder.


We use 1 packet for two cups of coffee.

I was really excited to get a lot of other sweeteners for baking.


I know I'll use vanilla and coco extracts the most. They are so good! 

NuNaturals pretty much spoiled me big time! 

I decided to make two different kinds of peanut butter from scratch. Then I added different sweeteners in them. This process would have gone a whole lot faster if I would have gotten peanuts out of the shells. I knew the boys would enjoy taking the shells off. 


Isaak in particular loved taking the peanuts out of their shells. He told me that he wants to make peanut butter for a living.

Making peanut butter is super easy. I never realized how easy it is. You just stick the peanuts in a food processor and wiz it up until it starts to form balls inside the processor. I let it run a little longer than that. It's really a matter of how chunky you like your peanut butter.


I wanted to try to make two different peanut butters to experiment with flavors with the sweeteners.

I added Flax Seed to both. I buy Whole Golden Flax Seed and grind mine up with a coffee grinder.



Recipe for Peanut Butter using PreSweet Tagatose:

1 cup peanut butter.
1/8 cup ground flaxseed
2 Tablespoons Olive Oil
2 teaspoons PreSweet Tagatose
I added enough water to make it stir well, about 4 teaspoons

The boys and I loved it!


Recipe for Peanut Butter using Pure Liquid Vanilla Stevia and Pure Liquid Cocoa Bean Extract:

1 cup peanut butter
1/8 cup ground flaxseed
2 Tablespoons coconut oil 
6 drops Pure Liquid Stevia
6 drops Pure Liquid Cocoa Bean Extract
I added enough water to make it stir well, about 4 teaspoons

The boys and I loved this one to. It does have a hint of coconut flavor from the oil, but it's not super strong.  
 

Overall I love the NuNaturals products. They ship fast and taste really good!

I keep saying I wanna try homemade peanut butter, we go through so much and it has gotten SO expensive. I love that it has probiotics in it, that's great!

As a diabetic who can't use the 'usual' sweeteners I'm always on the lookout for products I can safely enjoy; these definitely are on the must try list now!

I wish I liked peanut butter! I like peanuts, but not peanut butter. The sweeteners look to be so versatile!

i think this product is fantastic. I have tried the Vanilla sweetener flavor and I love to put it in my tea in the morning. It really make the flavor delicious. My daughter would love to make the peanut butter, so we do have to try that!
