The holidays are here, that time of year that we increase our calorie intake by just showing up.

But who can resist the family recipes that you look forward to every year?

A low-glycemic drink to aid in digestion and also highlight holiday flavors seems like a good idea. And now, sugar-free has never tasted so good. I’m not someone who enjoys a lot of the alternative sweeteners that are on the market. Their aftertaste is often unpleasant to me.

So instead, I find myself left with 2 options. Either I don’t eat sugar at all; or I use one of WFN’s natural sweeteners in moderation.

Natural vs. Alternative Sweeteners: Coco Monkey

There’s another sweetener, however, that IS sugar-free, and I think its taste far surpasses other alternative sweeteners. If you use Truvia, Necttrese, or stevia, I think you’ll really enjoy WFN’s sugar-free sweetener, Coco Monkey.

Coco Monkey is made from inulin, monk fruit, and freeze-dried coconut water. I love this combination! It’s light, not over-powering, and gives you just the right amount of sweetness.

Coco Monkey is a tasty choice for a sugar-free drink. It blends nicely and provides a pleasant sweetness, without over-powering the cranberries, ginger, and lemon.

Why not try a guilt-free mocktail this holiday season? And don’t forget the fancy glass.
