DIY Stevia Syrup

Do you enjoy powdered Stevia as a sweetener? Well not only can you grow the low-calorie sweetener yourself you can easily process those leaves into a syrup that's easily used in yoghurt, pancakes and other situations where you don't want to sprinkle powder on a food to sweeten it.

Natural household weblog Slightly Steady shares their recipe for making a sweetening syrup using Stevia leaves. You'll simply want to add one cup of water to three cups of chopped Stevia leaves and stems, cover tightly and allow to sit for 24 hours. Taste for sweetness and if needed cover again for 12-24 hours. Strain the water into a pan and bring to a simmer for 20 minutes and then remove it from the heat and allow it to cool. You'll have a low-calorie sweetener syrup that will last for a few weeks in your refrigerator.

Homemade Stevia Syrup [Slightly Steady]


    I use it in powdered form for my breakfast and coffee. Bloody expensive though..!

    I think it may also be a laxative. I seem to recall having to give up using it in my coffee for that reason. I used to drink a lot of coffee!

    OH that's what went wrong.. I was using Salvia, not Stevia as a sweetener..

      You okay brah?
