Substitute Stevia for Sugar - Stevia is a natural sweetener used for centuries in South America. Great for diabetics & those trying to kick the pervasive "granular crack". It may seem more expensive than sugar but since you use so little, it's really not. Replacing sugar with stevia in most recipes is really as simple as shown in this chart. I mostly use liquid but the powder works well also. When baking I use a combination of erythritol+stevia. You can grow stevia too! Totally awesome!
No Thinker Shrinker! All you do is steep two Oolong tea bags in hot water, transfer to a quart jar, add ice, more water and stevia extract to taste.
