Book Review and Giveaway - Splenda: The World of Sweet Drinks

Wednesday, November 11, 2009

I received Splenda World of Sweet Drinks: Recipes for Homemade Shakes, Punches, Hot Drinks, and More as a gift a few months ago when I hosted a Splenda themed party in my home. From the moment I saw it I became thirsty, I thought I was dehydrated because every single picture made me want to dig through my kitchen for the ingredients or even go out to the grocery store if they couldn't be found in the house.
I looked through the book a few days later and the same thing happened, every drink in the book looked delicious so this time I picked a few to try and after a little mixing I started pouring. Every single recipe I have tried from this book has been wonderful, the cold drinks, the hot ones, it doesn't matter they are all great. I've even served a few at parties I have had since.
Try Fizzy Lemonade (pictured on cover), the Frozen Almond Cappuccino and the Elegant Eggnog or you could just flip to any page, make whatever drink you land on and enjoy, I'm sure you will.

The Giveaway:
I am going to giveaway two Splenda gift packs. Both have a 76 Splenda Recipe Card Collection book (each recipe is on a sturdy tear-out card with color picture)and a stirring spoon, then one pack comes with a sample box of Splenda and the other one comes with a set of measuring spoons and cups. Two lucky readers will each win one gift pack.

My husband uses Splenda all the time to make lemonade, but we don't do much else with it besides coffee and tea. Sounds like an interesting recipe book. I'm sure there's a lot more we could be doing with this stuff. I'm going to check out their website to see if there are recipes posted.

I like this post. We use Splenda in our home on strawberries, and in tea. I wouldn't need a sample of Splenda if I won, but the measuring spoons and such would be nice, as well as the recipes.
I used the Google Account Identity method you have here on your site to enter.
Thank you,

I always use Splenda in my coffee, it would be nice to have recipes to branch out

I have a gallon sun tea jar that I put one/two packets of Splenda in when I make suntea. The Tea is still tastes unsweetened but not so bitter.
