Splenda is garbage, pal. Common

Stop putting that trash in your body.
I'm avoiding sugar, but I really enjoy some sweetness in my hot beverages so I use Splenda.
What do you recommend as a replacement?

Erythritol to me is closest to sugar. It's the main ingredient in most Stevia and Monk Fruit blends, but you can also find pure Erythritol which doesn't seem to have the weird aftertaste.

Hrrmmm. Doesn't seem to have an aftertaste to me. Maybe a bit like cotton candy - but I'll check out the pure stuff.

I like to bake with it, maybe that's why the aftertaste is masked. Cookies and brownies with 30% less calories (if you sub 50/50 whatever full cal sweetener is in the recipe) and still pretty decent results.

The “feels like” temperature where I am right now is 100 degrees. I’m not exaggerating. Jealous. Enjoy.
