Notes
  • Dairy free option: Opt for a plant based milk over dairy milk. Read my milk guide here.
  • No monk fruit? You can use ¼ cup of an erythritol based sweetener such as Lakanto. 
  • You can also use ¼ cup of coconut sugar, honey or maple syrup, however please note this will increase the sugar content slightly. 
  • *Pure monk fruit powder is a sugar-free sweetener (read more about what monk fruit is and where to get it here), not to be confused with “monk fruit sweetener” which is actually an erythritol based sweetener. 
  • Read more about these sweeteners here, including my product recommendations. If you are unsure what to use, read more about sugar and my philosophy here.
