    It still has Artificial sweetener in it. No good

    You used a LOT of stevia in this. In Germany you just need a pinch of it
    and it will be sweet enough. Makes me wondering how they produce this
    Truvia stuff in North America. And I agree it’s still a artificial
    sweetener… My tip: use a little bit of agave syrup. It’s REALLY natural,
    healthy, and it doesn’t have too much of calories in it. :-)

      Thank you! 🙂 I would like to know if it’s necessary to use this much
      stevia like it was done in the video.

      +Jazillia007 It’s not the same is pure powdered stevia extract. This is
      more granulated, and has another ingredient mixed in. You are right, that
      would be a crazy amount with pure stevia.

    Egg product? Natural sweetener but chemical egg substance?

      It’s basically just egg whites in a carton that have been pasturized, but
      you could easily sub in a couple regular whole eggs or separate out the
      whites, as well.

      +Truvia® Query, I haven’t seen Truvia at my local Spar supermarket. I could
      use Stevia, don’t you agree?
