How to Use Your KRISDA Stevia

Hi There!  Welcome to Busy But Healthy!  I created this section to share recipes and info about Krisda brand stevia!  I LOVE using stevia as I believe the health benefits of a low sugar diet are dramatic!  In addition to weight loss, maintaining a healthy weight, and managing diabetes, many people find that switching to stevia can assist in healthy blood sugar levels and less cravings for sugar and junk food.  I hope I can help you discover many more ways to use Krisda.  You can use it in a lot of places you may not think, like savory recipes, or in other things like cookies, muffins and protein bars!

So if your looking for more ways to use your Krisda stevia, you’ve come to the right place!  All stevia’s aren’t created equal, and Krisda has some great products that no one else has! (ie. Krisda Cafe! their flavored stevia’s for coffee).

Below are just a selection of my favorite recipes using Krisda, there are many more not listed here. I update with new recipes weekly, so be sure to check them out HERE.

Where to Start?

If you’re new to using stevia, check out this great starter video I did:

Recipes using KRISDA

I’ve done many delicious recipes using Krisda stevia.  If you’ve never been to the site before, I should let you know that most of my recipes are diet restriction friendly too!  Most are also gluten free.  I also like to use protein powder in recipes to make it a bit lower carb and improve the health benefits!  You may be starting to see in the media and on Dr. Oz that nutrition experts are suggesting that most people add a bit of protein in meals and snacks to help keep you satisfied throughout the day.  Incorporating more healthy protein sources and less refined carbs is also a great weight loss strategy.

Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Cookies

Festive and delicious!

Chili Lime Dip

This dip is great with quesadilla’s, chicken, on top of tacos, or almost anywhere you’d use sour cream!

Pumpkin Chocolate Cheesecake Bites

The ultimate cheesecake!

Monster Cookies

This recipe is so delicious, its a great one to start with to start introducing someone to stevia.  In this recipe I use stevia and brown sugar.  Using the Krisda helps to lower the sugar content in the entire recipe, without sacrificing taste whatsoever!

Watch me demonstrate the recipe:

This recipe was the Season 2 opening recipe of the Busy But Healthy Show.

Orange Cranberry Muffins

For everyday snacks, I’m a big fan of high protein muffins.  Traditional muffins are high in fat and sugar, but these are low in fat, plus contain protein!  A couple of these in the morning will fill you up for a few hours!

Watch me demonstrate the recipe:

Lemon Poppy Seed Muffins

Pumpkin Snickerdoodles

 

Kid-Friendly Healthy Fudgesicles

Kids and adults alike will love these healthy fudgsicles!  There is also some added protein in these too!  My daughter loves these!

Gingerbread Pancakes (gluten free)

Gingerbread, in a pancake?  Another great way to use your Krisda packets.  This recipe will please kids and adults alike!

Low Carb Honey Nut Cookies

No-Bake Cheesecake

 

Low Carb Peanut Butter Cookies

This is a healthier and low carb version of peanut butter cookies!  I use the Krisda baking formulation (or packets) in this recipe to make it low sugar.

Lemon Meringue Protein Bars

If you like Lemon Meringue Pie, you will LOVE these protein bars!  They are light, yet filling!  Krisda adds to the sweetness, but not the calories!

Guilt Free Chocolate Peanut Butter Popcorn

If your looking for a guilt-free evening snack, this certainly fills the need!  Sweet and savory popcorn!  I love the satisfying crunch of popcorn.  I use the Krisda packets in this recipe.

Easy Dijon-Ginger Pork with Apples & Onion

As I was mentioning above, many people wouldn’t think to use Krisda stevia in a savory recipe!  But it works excellent and really balances out the dish!  Many people have told me they tried this recipe and LOVED it!  You could also sub the pork for chicken.

Quick & Light Coconut Shrimp Curry


One thing that you’ll get to know about me is I LOVE Thai food (well aside from cookies!).  This is a super easy weeknight meal.  Traditional Thai curry calls for sugar, but of course, you can use Krisda instead!  I used the packets.  If you love ethnic food, you have to try this one!

Peanut Butter Chicken

This is another savory recipe that you and your family will love!  Its another 30 minute meal!  It may sound strange to combine peanut butter with chicken, but it totally works!  After a couple of bites, you will fall in love with the sauce!  SO YUM!!!  I use the Krisda packets in this recipe as well!

Cocoa Crusted Chicken

This recipe has become very popular .  The rub is a sweet/savory combo. You can taste the cocoa, but its not too overpowering.  Very delicious!  The Krisda packets work perfectly in this dish!
These are by far, the best low carb chocolate chip cookie I’ve come up with.  They use the Krisda baking formula, but you could also use the packets.

My e-book also came out November 2011.  Almost all the recipes use Krisda stevia.  Visit my store for details on how to purchase.

Don’t forget to visit the Recipe section on the site.  I update that a couple times per week!  It will help to give you fresh new ideas on how to use your Krisda!

    Hi Kristine! I’ve been a fan of stevia for a while now but had never baked with it. I went to purchase Krisda baking formula today and noticed that unlike other stevia products I’ve come across, it has 45 calories per tablespoon. I’m just wondering if you know why this is??

    • http://www.busybuthealthy.com Kristine Fretwell

      The baking formula has more calories than just stevia drops for example because it has fiber (carbohydrate) added, to make it bigger volume so it measures more cup for cup to sugar. Hence the extra calories. You can use something more concentrated like drops if you like, but I find for baked goods like muffins and cakes, the baking formula yields a better result. Hope that helps!

        Why not just use sugar which has the same amount of calories per tablespoon? (And costs a fraction of the price of Krisda).
