Lakanto Monkfruit Sweetener Classic

Looking to replace sugar in your diet? Discover monk fruit, the natural no-sugar sweetener!

Over a thousand years ago in the remote mountain highlands of Asia, a group of Buddhist monks, called the Luo Han, achieved enlightenment through meditation, prayer and pure living. On the slopes of a primeval forest, the monks discovered and cultivated a rare fruit, prized for its sweetness. This sacred fruit was named Monk Fruit, or Luo Han Guo, after its devoted caretakers and was used in elixirs to raise chi, or life energy.

In 1995, Lakanto was created to help people around the world quit sugar, to lose weight, help control blood sugar, and live a healthier life.

Lakanto is #ResponsiblySweet – an all-natural, 1 for 1 sugar replacement sweetener that cooks, bakes, and tastes like sugar, with 93% fewer calories but without the aftertaste of artificial sweeteners!

It is natural in taste and texture – just like real sugar. Its sweetness profile is nearly identical to that of sugar. Being heat stable makes it suitable for beverages, cooking and baking. You can now enjoy Lakanto in your favourite drinks, foods and recipes.

    I am very late to the party here! Every time I have been baking I forget to use this! Today I saw it on the shelf and remembered I needed to use it!

    I decided to made Chelsea sugar pikelets. You would have no clue that I have not used sugar at all! I am amazed by the taste, there is no difference at all and there are simply scrummy 🙂

    I will certainly be using this as there is plenty of baking still happening whilst in lockdown.

    Just thought I’d jump on and do a follow up review because we are loving this – so much so I ended up buying some more off their website.

    We basically spent level 4 baking something new every couple of days and the Lakanto Sweetener went down a treat each time. 100% success rate. I tried my hand at my first ever banana cake last week where I used the classic sweetener and the golden sweetener (in place of brown sugar) and you couldn’t even tell the difference. The cake was still delish, had a great texture and lasted about 5 minutes in my house.

    Just in terms of delivery, I was really impressed that even in the level 4 lockdown I was still able to receive the product in less than a week from purchase. These guys are on to it! We’re contemplating going all in and buying the 800g bag just to get us set up because we aren’t going back.

    Thanks again for the trial Her World. I don’t think I would’ve given this a shot otherwise but its definitely changing our lives for the better.

    Firstly I read the list of ingredients and was horrified to find the main ingredient was Erythritol. This hardly is a new product.The Monk fruit extract comprises only 1% of the bag. I have tried Erythritol in the past, along with other sugarless sweeteners and always find them bitter especially in the aftertaste. My son can generally pick up a funny taste and my husband and daughter are generally oblivious.
    Anyway on to the testing. My daughter was given the entire bag which was decanted into a bowl and was instructed to make our usual chocolate cake which she makes perfectly every time. Mum, the batter is way thicker than usual. OK. On the first testing for cookedness the crust was thicker than usual and the batter still wet, then the batter was cooked 10 mins later.
    On cooling the cake it was a very dense and dry cake, nothing like the soft crumbly very moist cake that everyone loves.
    Husband said ‘you obviously need some more practice. Son said did you put margarine in it (it always has margarine) Daughter said it was bitter, dense, dry and nasty. I said we won’t be doing this again.
    Thanks for the opportunity to try this product and confining that sugar is better for our family.

    I have added Lakanto Monkfruit Sweetener to my shopping list. Unfortunately I was unable to try it in my baking as we have not had any flour in our supermarket for a few weeks. I was able to try it in my coffee though and was very pleasantly surprised. The first thing I noticed was how it tasted so much like sugar and there was no yucky aftertaste that a lot of sugar substitutes have.I have tried so hard to give up sugar and Lakanto Monkfruit Sweetener is going to make it so easy for me. The texture is very similar to sugar so I think it is going to work well in my baking too, I can’t wait to try it in my bread & Coconut buns!

  5. Shayla McDonald April 21, 2020 at 12:46 pm

    I would like to say thank you for letting me trial this Lakanto sweetner.

    I came into this review as a normal everyday consumer, I don’t have any dietary requirements or follow any special lifestyle diets.

    I enjoyed the bold packaging, the bright colour is very eye-catching. 5/5 for packaging.

    I am not sure if I have seen this product in my local supermarket, and with the current situation worldwide, I haven’t been to the store for several weeks to check. It would be great to see healthier choices such as this avaliable in local supermarkets and dairys everywhere.

    I LOVE sugar in my coffee so that is where I started. I used the Lakanto Monkfruit Sweetener in my morning coffee for a few days, I found that it did give a nice sweet kick and helped cut through the bitter coffee, I did find it a little disconcerting how fast the sweet sensation disappeared from my taste buds. But i’m sure that if I continued using this product that is something I would quickly get over that minor difference.

    I couldn’t decide what else I wanted to make with the Lakanto sweetener and didn’t have a lot of butter or eggs, which cut out most of my go to recipes.
    So, I decided to really put this to the test with….
    FUDGE!
    Which was probably a crazy idea.
    We had mixed results with this, It took a little longer to dissolve than traditional sugars but we got it to come together.
    The taste came out good and definitely tasted fudgey.
    Just one little difference, as it dissolved in our mouths it produced a cold sensation. (which is fine, probably just to do with the melting point as mentioned above)
    So it was a mixed reaction so far.
    The Mr. suggested that if we made a mint chocolate fudge it would be fantastic as it would emphasise the cooling affect of the mint flavour.

    Overall this was an interesting product to try, and I can see it’s appeal.
    It was great to put in my morning coffee, as I usually load that bad boy up with ALL the sugar.
    I would like to try this again in the future and try some more traditional baking (when my cupboard is a little more stocked up).
    The sweetener was nice, and didn’t have any nasty aftertaste which I have had with some sugar replacements in the past.
    It will be interesting to see what other products are available in the range.

    Thanks for the trial of Lakanto monkfruit sweetener. I have tried it in my coffee instead of my usual stevia and really loved it. It wasn’t all that very different as far as sweetening goes. I also trialed it in some anzac biscuits and muffins both which were very successful as no one in the family could tell there wasn’t sugar in it. So overall would definitely use again to cut back on sugar but not all the time as would be rather expensive. See photos for whati used it for. Thanks again.

  7. Leslie Whitehead April 15, 2020 at 2:35 pm

    I reviewed this product and I used it instead of sugar in my banana cake I made during lockdown and the hubby and I loved the taste and we will definitely be buying this product in the future for all my baking needs

    I loved the bright red packaging and how easy the packet was to get into it.

    I cant wait till lockdown is over for when I have the grandkids over to dish up baking with this product so they don’t go all hypo with too much sugar…

  8. Hania Tarabishy April 14, 2020 at 9:58 pm

    I absolutely love this product… It is amazing… The same sugar taste with no guilt… It came on time, when I am stress I consume a lot of sugary thing… I loved the packaging design, the sparkley twirl and the zip to lock it… I would strongly recommend it to my friends and for sure would buy again.

  9. Alison Spencer April 14, 2020 at 5:20 pm

    Lakanto Sweetener was a great alternative to sugar. Less calories and perfect for baking – muffins and afghans turned out better than ever. Eye catching packaging. 10 out of 10

  10. crank April 13, 2020 at 5:43 pm

    Thank you for this awesome free product trial. I would never have tried this product if it weren’t for this trial as I don’t think I have seen it in the supermarket (though I probably wasn’t looking!). During this lockdown I have done a lot of baking and it has been so good to be able to substitute the sugar content in a few of the dishes by using this sweetener without it affecting the result or the taste (just the calorie intake!). It’s so good! I have used it in a chocolate self-saucing pudding and also pikelets as well as a pasta sauce. My husband is now using it in his morning coffee too and he thinks it’s great. Being able to pick this up at Countdown on a regular basis would be great for those weekend baking sessions and to keep my husband’s coffee sweet without the sugar effects! The packaging was 4/5 – handy to have a resealable packet but would like a bigger pack. I’m interested to try other products from this brand too. Thank you so much for an awesome trial – we’re converts!

  11. Stephanie Rutherford April 12, 2020 at 9:51 pm

    Thank you for allowing us to trial this. I don’t have sugar in my coffee, so not sure on taste for this or hot drinks in general. Miss 12 had it on her weet-bix and said it tasted pretty much the same, just a little sweeter. Other than her breakfast, I used this in muffins, biscuits and fruit crumble. I found the muffins sweeter than usual using this, so for the biscuits and crumble I used less of the monkfruit sweetener compared to using standard sugar. This in itself I find to be a plus and the fact the kids didn’t realise there was less sugar is a bonus, less has to be better. Aside from finding it a bit sweeter than sugar, I found it baked the same.The package is nice and bright so would be easy to find on a shelf. It’s a re-sealable pack which is great. A lot easier than using a twisty tie to close. There’s plenty of information on the pack and I found easy to read. I am unsure on the cost for a 200g pack, however being that I used less than standard sugar, I think it would be fairly cost effective. I would be interested in a bigger pack so that it would last longer. I loved this product. I find it to be a great alternative to sugar and will be keeping an eye out for it on the shelves.

  12. Don Stanley April 10, 2020 at 5:58 pm

    My wife and I are always looking for more healthy food options. This is inspired by an almond allergy and problems with salicylates, as well as a simple desire to eat less carbs and lose a bit of weight. We don’t at all lose focus of the traditional foods we love, but we are much more calorie and carb conscious now.

    Keto kind of worked for us. But we both love fresh bread, and I love baking bread and things like Sunday pancakes and other things that satisfy our sweet tooth. So that’s where Keto fell down a bit. We did Keto for a while and then the cravings for bread crept in. I started looking for substitutes for flour and sugar.

    Eventually we started to think more holistically about healthier eating. Almond is a no-no. My wifes daughter introduced us to MyFitnessPal and we started to track meals. We found that the more we did to reduce carbs (keeping fresh bread in the diet) and stay within daily limits of calories (plus exercise), the more the weight rolled off and better we felt. What we’ve done is changed our food lifestyle subtly and it seems to be having all the right effects.

    But we still couldn’t satisfy the sweet tooth. I read about Monkfruit and almost at the same time literally stumbled on HerWorlds Lakanto Monkfruit Sweetener with Erythritol Classic promotion. I was lucky enough to get a 200gr packet arrive in the mail even after lockdown started, and immediately started to think about using it.

    Sunday pancakes were the first place the monkfruit came in. Reading the label and seeing it should be used as a 1-1 sugar substitute was a bonus, as it made recipes easy. I took my usual (self developed) recipe and added the monkfruit. We were both surprised, not with any overwhelming sweetness but how this was clearly sweet but not dominant sweet. And very low carbs.

    Then Easter came and today I found a recipe for Easter pancakes which doesn’t use sugar at all. I remembered an old episode of Masterchef where the contestants had to make pancakes for Nigella Lawson. One contestant liberally sprinkled sugar over the pancake before flipping so I figured I’d try that with the monkfruit. It caramelised nicely and again provided that subtle sweet but not dominant sweet taste.

    With the usual Sunday pancakes recipe, you’ll see in the submitted picture that we tend to use fresh fruit with pancakes, and about a teaspoon of Canadian Maple Syrup is poured over. You may be aware that a lot of fresh fruit is salicylate high. Both my wife and her daughter reduced their intolerance to a point where they no longer have much problem — by going cold turkey. We simply removed nearly everything that is moderate to high in salicylates from the diet for a few months.

    Re-introducing these foods has so far seen no ill effects. Except almond. So the fresh fruit is not currently a problem anymore.

    What do we like about the monkfruit sweetener? Firstly from a practical point of view I don’t need to worry about how much monkfruit to use as its 1-1 with sugar. So its an easy switch in a recipe.

    Secondly from a taste perspective that subtle non dominant sugar taste is really a bonus. While I mentioned our sweet tooth, manys the time that sugar is actually to dominant for us. I don’t add my original 0.4 cup of sugar to the pancakes as it is to sweet. but using the monkfruit was no problem. It ties in nicely with the coconut flavour and was sweeter but less dominating, more enhancing the taste.

    As for calories, I was able to make 22 pancakes and the calories are 67 per pancake with 0 grams sugar and 8 grams carbs. With normal sugar, this increases to 80 calories per pancake and 12 grams of carbs and 4 grams of sugar.

    So I figured with today being Easter Friday that we needed a variation on the pancakes. This isn’t my recipe (the pancakes above I have developed over time) but it comes from this site:

    https://www.newshub.co.nz/home/lifestyle/2020/04/the-best-easter-recipes-to-whip-up-at-home-this-long-weekend.html

    This recipe does not use sugar. There is plenty of sweetness in the mashed banana. However I wanted to try caramelising the pancake by sprinkling with sugar just before flipping. It’s a simple recipe and quite traditional with white flour, but hey, its Easter Friday and we’re locked in, some treats have to happen.

    So this takes a fairly standard mix and adds cinnamon and allspice. I also added 40ml of cultured buttermilk. You could add peel and raisins if you wanted an “Easter bun” pancake.

    Just before the top stops being runny (see submitted photo), sprinkle over a teaspoon or so monkfruit. Flip and cook to your liking (ours is crisp, well browned).

    The caramelisation adds a sugary hit to each mouthful and enhances the sweetness of the bananas, but its all being offset a bit by the cinnamon and allspice. An Easter treat. Don’t leave the sugared side on the skillet to long as it may burn. Also these are delicate and soft. Treat them with care! The caramelisation worked a treat.

    So whats next. I am about to start a sourdough rewena bread bug. Instead of the usual sugar I am going to use monkfruit and also use it in the bread baking. That will probably be done next week. I’m not expecting a lot of taste difference, just a carb reduction and virtuos feeling of further removing normal sugar from the diet.

    Tonight I’m going to make a yellow zucchini curry. Our zucchinis are almost at an end but two decent sized ones are in the garden. As an experiment I’m going to find out if the monkfruit sweetener enhances this (its our favourite curry so I’m hoping it doesn’t do the opposite).

    Other ideas include some of our favourite desserts such as bread and butter pudding, chocolate fondant, apple pie (my pastry recipe uses sugar and its to sweet so want to see if monkfruit sorts that). Also a keto slice that I make which uses Stevia — I’ll switch to monkfruit.

    Hoping to see the monkfruit in the stores but being one of the lucky 30 has me happy, and made lockdown a bit more fun. Thanks HerWorld!!

    Also, no problem with it in tea, again, it seems to be present without being over dominant and I’m happy. Will also try a teaspoon in cold tea infusions to see how that tastes.

    One thing that I don’t know in this time of COVID-19 is whether the product will be stocked in supermarkets. So far I haven’t seen it but I’m not surprised given the state of things just now. I hope it is and at a reasonable price. If supermarkets don’t stock then its probably not viable for a lot of people.

    One potential flaw with the product is the packaging. It’s a ziplock top which is great and easy to use. However one side of the zip parted company with the actual packaging immediately on opening. So yes, it locks, but leaves a gaping big hole across the bag. It wont stop me buying it if the price works. Also beware of the fact that there are two products with near identical packaging. They are distinguished only by one having “classic” and the other having “golden” on the label. No idea what the difference is, but this review is for “classic”. The packaging isn’t great, but I don’t consume the packaging and for me it wont negatively impact the product (unless I buy the wrong one).

    ENJOY, Don

    Hello!

    We received the Lakanto Monkfruit Sweetner Classic last week, and have been using it everyday since.

    I added it to my coffee, on morning oats and also in baking. It definitely doesn’t leave an aftertaste that I have experienced before with Stevia. It was so nice not having to do maths too, as it’s 1 to 1 in serving amounts (some sweetners you use 1/3 less etc, but this one is equal to normal measurements)

    It was a hit with my whole family, and no complaints from anyone. I made a berry loaf cake and used Lakanto as the only Sweetner and it worked so well!! Tasted just like normal sugar.

    My daughter has Type 1 Diabeties which means we are careful of sweets and always looking for alternative ways to naturally sweeten foods. We use a CGM which shows us her blood sugar, and after eating her loaf cake her blood sugar levels were steady – Lakanto says there is no glycemic load, this is true.

    Things that could be improved;
    A small spoon inside the bag
    A glass container vs plastic bag
    Refill options

    We will only be buying this now! No more sugar in our house!

    Thanks for the opportunity.

  14. Belinda Whitehead April 5, 2020 at 5:32 pm

    I received the Lakanto Monkfruit Sweetener with Erythritol Classic at the end of last week and promptly set about making a blackberry & apple crumble which tasted delicious for the family with the sweetness of sugar but 93% fewer calories. I also used half a teaspoon of this in my coffee and was pleasantly surprised not to have the horrible aftertaste I have experienced before with other artificial sweeteners.

    I have only been out to the supermarket which was the local Pak n’Save once and did check out the shelf near the sugar, but didn’t see the Monkfruit sweetener. I was in a hurry to be in and out of the store with this lockdown so didn’t look up and down all the aisles. Love to find this in my local Pak n’Save, Countdown and New World as these are my local stores.

    The packaging is a soft strong plastic which is resealable. I love the bright red colour which makes it stand out and on the back tells a story about Buddhist Monks finding Monk Fruit. I would give the packaging a 5/5.

    Love to try other products from this brand and look forward to using the Monkfruit sweetener again and again as I do enjoy the taste and especially since it uses 93% less calories than sugar which is so much healthier. Thanks for letting our family try this.

  15. Charlotte April 4, 2020 at 12:27 pm

    Thanks so much for letting me try out the Lankanto Sweetener – I’m officially converted! I love that this is sweet without having a strange aftertaste like some other sweeteners do and it’s so similar to white sugar that my boyfriend hasn’t even noticed I’ve swapped it out

    Thankfully this also arrived just before the lockdown as I’ve been baking up a storm. I’ve made brownies, sweet scones, apple cinnamon muffins and the Lakanto banana bread recipe I found on your site – all using the sweetener. Everything has been just as delicious as ever

    The packaging is also great. Very bright which I love and a resealable pouch is such a great convenience.

    I’m glad I was able to do this trial as I’m not sure if I would’ve given it a try otherwise. I haven’t been able to find it in my supermarket but would be keen to buy it in my groceries going forward and check out some of their other products too.

    5/5 Thanks Her World!

  16. Nicki Warhurst April 2, 2020 at 2:09 pm

    Thank you for selecting me to trial the Lakanto Montfruit Sweetener. I used it in baking – first with a chocolate mug muffin and then hot cross buns. The taste was similar to sugar. I was pleased that you couldn’t detect any harsh taste of sweetener, as with some other products I have tried. I haven’t seen this product in the supermarket but will keep an eye out for it. It would be great if this product was available at either Pak N Save or New World. I would rate the packaging as a 4 – it was attractive and easy to open and reseal. I would definitely purchase other products from this brand. It’s great to have a healthier alternative to sugar!

  17. Mary Jo Chase April 2, 2020 at 12:36 pm

    My son was very enthusiastic about trying this product as it would involve baking something sweet! We used the banana bread recipe from the Lakanto web page, except used vegetable oil instead of coconut oil and left out the nuts. The whole family was pleased with the result and it tasted just like sugar in the recipe. would use again if not too costly to buy.

  18. Claire Walkinshaw April 1, 2020 at 12:42 pm

    Lakanto Monkfruit Sweetener was an unknown but I was keen to try the product. I used the sweetener in coffee and in a homemade loaf of bread. Both were greatly successful.

    The taste is only slightly different from white sugar. There is no after-taste and the texture is much finer‚ more resembling castor sugar. Granules dissolve instantly and there is no after-taste. I have not seen the product in my supermarket although in this current uncertain climate there are many items unavailable. I would wish to purchase from the local supermarket since our town has no specialty food outlets.

    Packaging is 5/5 – easy to open‚ pack stands alone safely and colouring of pack is conspicuous. I would buy this in future and unfortunately the timing to experiment with baking or desserts was unsuitable. I have given some of the sweetener to a lady who is type-2 diabetic (she has a sweet tooth!) as it may well suit her needs perfectly. With the success experienced this time‚ I would purchase other products from the brand.

    Thank you for allowing my participation.

  19. Helena Campbell March 29, 2020 at 8:22 pm

    After having gestational diabetes I started eating low carb so majority of my food is low carb/keto. Which means I use a lot of artificial sweeteners.
    I have definitely used a lot of plant based ones so I was so excited to be chose to try this o have heard of it but never seen it in my store to try.
    I received the classic pack. It was a decent size and consistency. Almost a diner grain size sugar than a lot of the others I have used. Which is great for baking and cooking.
    It easily dissolved on the tongue.
    Was sweeter and richer in flavour than some other white sugar alternatives. It was close to a brown sugar taste which I loved.
    I used this in a recipe real rad food released that was for a keto raw cookie ball. Given the lockdown this was the prefect sugar to use as it’s all I had. But it gave a smooth non grainy texture with the prefect sweetness and best of all kept it keto not spiking my sugars which is so important to me. Will definitely be looking out for and purchasing in store.
    Thank you.

  20. Kaza March 29, 2020 at 9:34 am

    Well I was very dubious about trying this sweetener as I’ve tried everything on the market and been very dissatisfied with them ,however I was pleasantly surprised with this one I used it in my tea and in baking .,it actually had next to none after taste ,it did taste like sugar and I couldn’t taste any difference in my mini sweet scones .
    It is the best I’ve ever tasted and I could easily use this on a daily basis instead of sugar .
    The packaging is great ,easy tear and resealable,a real plus , 5/5 from me .
    I’d love to see this available in my local supermarket,hopefully at a reasonable price .,and be keen to try any other line of products in this brand that is made available.

  21. Natasha March 19, 2020 at 11:47 am

    Would love to try this in my baking and try cut down on sugar in my family’s diet.

  22. Felicity Smith March 16, 2020 at 10:41 am

    I would love to try this in some simple baking. I am shocked by the quantities of sugar in some classics and would love to experiment

  23. Don Stanley March 15, 2020 at 3:28 pm

    Trying to do a low carb diet (keto) and coping with salicylates problems and almond allergies is always interesting but I want to be able to conquer the liking we both have for sweet. I love cooking my partner desserts but Stevia doesn’t quite do it for us so the chance to try Monkfruit would be awesome for her.

  24. cranky March 13, 2020 at 1:13 pm

    This sounds fantastic. I would like to use it in baking, ie muffins and brownie.

  25. Kimberly Mccall March 13, 2020 at 12:01 pm

    Hi

    I am currently on the keto diet and would love to give this a go!!!!

  26. nicola carson March 12, 2020 at 8:20 pm

    I have been going keto for a month now and have cut sugar completely from my diet.
    I am really starting to crave sweet treats and i have not heard of this product before. I am glad it is keto friendly.
    I would make some baking. Cakes,slices,deserts with this product.

  27. Belinda Whitehead March 12, 2020 at 5:16 pm

    Definitely want to have a healthier lifestyle for myself and my family. Love to try the new Lakanto Monkfruit for baking biscuits and cakes plus to use in my coffee which I use half a tsp of sugar so would love to replace it for an alternative.

    I have tried other sweeteners which leave a horrible taste in my mouth so am hoping this one is different. Love to give this a review and take some photos.

  28. Hollie March 11, 2020 at 9:27 pm

    I use sugar only in baking so would love to give this product a try and see how it tastes with some of my tried and tested favourite recipes 🙂

  29. Krista Eades March 11, 2020 at 6:58 pm

    I’d love to give this a go. I’m struggling with the weight loss battle, and with hypothyroidism and PCOS it makes it very difficult. I also have a major sweet tooth, so it would be great to be able to replace sugar in baking and hot drinks but still get the amazing flavour. I’d be really interested to see if there really is no funny aftertaste like you get with other products

  30. Claire Walkinshaw March 11, 2020 at 11:47 am

    The product to end the sugar embarrassment? Yes please! I use as little white sugar as possible but there are folk who insist coffee needs some so that would be eliminated immediately. Baking – truffles for example – would be equally as tasty with a sugar replacement too and I would happily use this. I think lack of confidence delays the inevitable re-education.

  31. Misty Snyman March 9, 2020 at 1:25 pm

    Would love to try this! I usually don’t like sugar replacements but this sounds like it could be different and the story behind the brand is pretty cool. I love making chia puddings as a healthy weekday breakfast option but I find that it definitely needs something to sweeten it up so I’d use Lakanto in this to make it a bit more tasty

  32. Helena Campbell March 9, 2020 at 1:19 pm

    After having gestational diabetes in two of my pregnancies I have remained low carb so am always looking for more alternatives to sugar so would love to give this a go.

  33. Samantha Glasswell March 9, 2020 at 12:09 pm

    This would be a great alternative in my vegan baking – trying to keep my sugar intake down. I would add it to my Sunday pancake mix or cupcake recipes.

  34. Adele Stewart March 6, 2020 at 9:02 pm

    I would love to trial this product as I have heard about it but never as yet tried it and am determined to avoid sugar and artificial sweeteners. I avoid sugar and only use stevia as a sugar substitute – mainly in my coffee. However, I would love to try this as an alternative and maybe try using in baking and desserts as I find stevia too hard to estimate how much to use. As a result I don’t bake very often!

    I would love to try it in my baking. I make a lot of biscuits, cakes and slices for my own family and as gifts. It would be great to try a product so much lower in calories to make my baking that bit healthier. Also would use in tea and coffee.

    I’d love to try this product. I’m always looking for ways to cut down sugar in my family’s diet. I’d use this in baking. Please consider me. Thank you.

    Lakanto sweetener would be great to reduce sugar from my diet. It would
    be perfect when baking as an alternative to condensed milk.

    I would use it to bake morning tea slices, biscuits and cakes . I would like to see if it is as good or better than coconut sugar and rice malt syrup.

    I hadn’t heard of this sweetener before – but I luv the choice – Monkfruit sounds so unusual so I’d be dying to try it in my Mango, Pineapple & Pear smoothies and Banana, Peach & Coconut smoothies too! Sounds yummo. So generous of you guys! Yes, pretty please.

    I would use it in baking for a healthier alternative for the whole family.

      I’d love to try this product in tea, coffee and in my home baking to try and break my addiction to sugar!! Have tried other sweeteners but they just don’t taste good to me so hoping for a win with Lakanto.

    My teenage daughter bakes banana bread for breakfast. We could do it together and use this instead of sugar and use it in other recipes!

    We would love to trial and review this product, our family has a type 1 diabetic and we as a family eat less sugar and often don’t like the bitter after taste so would love to try this.

    I would love to try the Monk Fruit Sweetener as I have given up sugar & meat this year and have heard that monk fruit does not have the after taste of other sweeteners. I would use it in baking & my coffee.

  44. Samantha Tuaupiki March 6, 2020 at 9:36 am

    I can’t believe there’s a sugar alternative that is low glycaemic AND doesn’t have that nasty aftertaste! I would love to try this – I’d use it in my coffee mostly but I’d also try it in homemade marinades and vinaigrettes, and I’d like to see how it stands up to being baked in biscuits and cake.

    I would love to try this product.
    I confess to being a sugar addict!
    I would love to see if this product can help to kick the habit. I find the taste of some artificial sweeteners a bit odd, but if this can get my coffee tasting great or the cookies tasting amazing without the unhealthy aspects of cane sugar then this would get my seal of approval. 🙂

    Would love to trial this, I enjoy baking with my kids this would be ideal for the family

  47. Rochelle Ganderton March 6, 2020 at 8:56 am

    I would love to try this with baking at home. I have been trying to reduce my sugar intake so this would be great to try and see if I can still enjoy a sweet treat but without the mass amount of sugar within

  48. Mary Jo Chase March 6, 2020 at 8:27 am

    I would love to use this for baking and have the kids use it to sweeten cereal.

  49. Leslie Whitehead March 6, 2020 at 8:25 am

    I love being in my kitchen baking specials treats for my family and friends and because the hubby and I are sweet tooths I would love to bake using this product to cut down on the sweetness

  50. Hania Tarabishy March 6, 2020 at 8:18 am

    I would love to try this product… And these amazing recipes, the caramel slice and the banana bread will be the first thing to try with it..

  51. courtneyevans91 March 5, 2020 at 8:46 pm

    I bake a lot with my two daughters and I would love to try this in our pancakes and banana muffins!

  52. Stephanie Rutherford March 5, 2020 at 8:38 pm

    Would love to trial this. Would use in baking and on cereal as a start. Trying to move away/use less sugar.

  53. Charlotte March 5, 2020 at 8:34 pm

    I would love to trial this please! Have been trying to move away from sugar for a few months now but have been struggling to find something that I can easily sub into my morning coffees. Would love to be able to bake these into some mini muffins to snack on during the work day and a cake for my nans birthday coming up – she is diabetic. Also love that this is gluten free! Thanks Her World 🙂
