Agave Nectar

Recommended Posts

So I finally bought some agave nectar. I know you can sub it for honey or maple syrup. But what I would like to know is exactly what you like to do with it...what is your favorite way to use it? Thanks for the ideas. :P

I only eat it sometimes in that delicious coconut "ice cream" by http://www.turtlemountain.com/products/pur...lk_Reviews.html

I dont overdue it because Agave Nectar is almost pure fructose which does the same thing as high fructose corn syrup. It causes insulin resistance according to all of the research I have come across. So just to be safe, I only use for special treats now and again.

Sub out some of your sweetener when you bake. Use same proportion as you would honey. :)

I have only used it a few times in raw food recipes. And I use a lot less than is called for. If the recipe says 1/2 a cup, I use like 2 squirts. I do not like overly sweet food though and rarely make any sweets. I know I used it in raw Tootsie Rolls, some nut cookies and perhaps one other thing.
