Monk Fruit in the Raw Review



I am always searching for options to make my family's eating healthier. We love our sweet treats so figuring out what sugar substitutes will work for us is important. We still consume sugar, but when I can switch out a bit of sugar for something with zero calories that is a bit on the healthier side, I do.

For awhile we used Stevia in the Raw. It's a good substitute if you don't mind measuring like crazy. Too much and you have a super bitter concoction. Too little and your food/drink doesn't taste right.

I was sent Monk Fruit In The Raw to test out.

Here is some fun facts about this sweetener.
  • Zero calories!
  • Made from real monk fruit which is a vine-ripened fruit native to Asia. 
  • Monk fruit was first harvested in the 13th century by...wait for it...Monks. 
  • The extract from the monk fruit is blended with other sweeteners to create a perfect sweet. 
  • Naturally vegan, kosher and gluten-free. 
  • No added table sugar, sugar alcohols or molasses. 
  • Monk Fruit In The Raw is the closest taste to sugar of any non-caloric sweetener with the least amount of aftertaste (Hallelujah!)
  • One pack of Monk Fruit In The Raw is about as sweet as two teaspoons of sugar. 


The baking mix can be used cup for cup in many recipes but in baking recipes it is recommend to cut in half, but no more than that. You need at least half of it to make it sweet enough. I always find that subbing sugar in baking recipes can get more complicated. A new sweetener in my tea, awesome. Baking...it's a trial and error type process. 

My own belief is that it won't taste exactly like what you are used to with sugar, however it is a healthier alternative and one that you can feel good about feeding to your family. It still tastes good! Just different. 


These little packets are handy. I love that they are premeasured. I was a Sweet 'N Low gal and unfortunately it is still my weakness for my tea. These are good and a better alternative. 

Have you ever used other sweeteners? What works for you?
