Having a sweet tooth is a normal, natural thing for many. For those of us with diabetes or who are trying to lose weight that sweet tooth can quickly become a nuisance. It’s like as soon as we see something resembling dessert that sweet tooth starts screaming “FEED ME” and it doesn’t stop until the cravings have been satisfied. To keep things from getting too ugly I keep sugar free treats on hand. One brand I was recently introduced to is Sans Sucre, which translates to ‘without sugar‘ or ‘sugar free‘, and that’s what the brand is. Instead of using traditional sugar, Sans Sucre sweetens their products with Stevia, an all-natural sweetener.
I received a variety of brownie and mousse mixes to try (for review purposes) and found that I really, really love the mousse. My grandmother is a huge fan of everything, which is great since she has the biggest sweet tooth of anyone I’ve ever known, as well as type II diabetes.
I will preface with this, at first I could tell these mixes are made with a sugar substitute. It’s not overwhelming and my grandmother didn’t notice at all. If you use Stevia, or other sugar substitutes regularly then there’s a good chance you won’t notice either. I can’t stomach diet soda or artificial sweeteners due to the taste of “fake sugar”, but Sans Sucre didn’t have the same taste as those. After trying several of the varieties the taste of the Stevia was no longer obvious to me which was a huge bonus.
My favorite thing about the Sans Sucre Brownie mixes is you only need 3 ingredients – the mix, water, and oil. I’m also stoked that many of Sans Sucre’s products are gluten free, which makes them a good choice for those with gluten allergies and restrictions. They come out moist and full of flavor, just how I like them.
Now, my favorite. The Sans Sucre Mousse mixes are pure delight. You get 2 pouches per box and each pouch makes 4 1/2 cup servings, at 70 calories each. The only thing you need to do to make the mousse is add skim milk and mix it. The mousse comes out airy and light and filled with delicious flavor. I like to layer different flavors like the Key Lime Pie and Strawberry – it’s heaven. It feels like it should be wrong while you’re eating it, but then you realize it’s pretty much guilt free. And who doesn’t love a guilt-free dessert?!
