Strawberry Lemonade Cupcakes Made with Sugar Blend

Have you noticed the topsy-turvy weather we are having these days? Nobody would be be able to tell if it’s gonna rain or not. And even if it rains, it doesn’t cool down the temperature. It’s like Summer never left and the rainy day never came.

Thinking about Summer (–and feeling it!) inspired me to bake a dessert that would stir up refreshments and a #ForeverSummer vibe. Cupcakes that would remind us of our favorite drink — Strawberry Lemonade Cupcakes!

And just like these Chocolate Chip S’mores Cookies, these Strawberry Lemonade Cupcakes were also made using Sugar Blend.

As you all know, we are trying to really cut back on sugar. This family has a sweet tooth so skipping desserts and snack will just backfire and make us crave more. So instead of avoiding sweets, sugar, and dessert, we started using a healthy alternative which is Sugar Blend.

Sugar Blend is a versatile and affordable sweetener product made with a blend of sugar and sucralose. It works well with all types of desserts and everyday dishes that needs a little sweetness. We even use it for our coffee!

Sugar Blend makes it possible for us to cut our sugar consumption in half as 1 teaspoon of Sugar Blend (16kcal) is equals to 2 teaspoons of sugar (32kcal). It surely won’t put a dent in your pocket as one pack that can sweeten up to 100 cups of coffee only costs ₱89.00. It’s really #SweetAllYouCan with Sugar Blend.

peanutbutter paired this Strawberry Lemonade Cupcakes with his coffee this afternoon and loved it. He said it’s not too sweet and it’s just like regular cupcakes…

I couldn’t agree more, it’s the perfect cupcake for your cup of joe and it’s also the perfect school baon for your kids!
