Do you love picnics? We do too, but we don't like all the sugar that tends to push its way into the fun. That's why we've gathered some recipes and tips for using stevia in your picnic foods instead of sugar.
Main Dishes with Stevia
It might surprise you to learn that you can use stevia to make your picnic's main dishes taste delicious. How about turkey burgers with sweet mustard sauce?
These burgers are easy, quick, and can be done on the stovetop or grill, and the mustard sauce just takes a quick whisk and a short stint in the refrigerator. Here's the recipe: "Turkey Burgers with Sweet Mustard Sauce."
Side Dishes with Stevia
Now that you have the main dish covered, let's add some side dishes. Coleslaw and potato salad are classic picnic foods that you won't want to do without. Luckily, we found ways to remove the sugar from both of them.
"Ginger Sweet Coleslaw" couldn't be easier to make, and it doesn't require bottled dressing that might contain sugar, high fructose corn syrup, and other not-so-healthy ingredients. Plus, the finished product is gorgeous and delicious.
"Tarragon Potato Salad" uses only fresh ingredients, seasoned with a little bit of stevia, to make a fresh, flavor-filled dish that your friends and family will approve of and ask you to bring to every picnic.
Just bring a cooler with you to keep the salads safe to eat.
Easy Finger Food Dessert with Stevia
If your picnic guests still have room for dessert after they've eaten your feast, serve them these: "Oatmeal Raisin Cookies." Not only do they take just over a half hour to make, but they also travel well, and they don't contain sugar.
There you have it: a lovely picnic with everything your guests will expect to see—they won't even know the sugar is missing.
