I participated in a campaign on behalf of Mom Central Consulting (#MC) for Monk Fruit In The Raw.
I received a promotional item and product sample as a thank you for participating.
Have you ever used any of the In The Raw products? I started using Sugar In The Raw back in the 90’s. I was waitressing at a family restaurant and we stocked the little brown Sugar In The Raw packets. I learned that In The Raw products were natural, less-processed sugar for people who are a little more health-conscious.
Now In The Raw introduces Monk Fruit In The Raw! I’m very curious about this and am excited to try it out. Monk Fruit In The Raw is a wholesome, zero-calorie sweetener, made from delicious vine-ripened monk fruit, native to South East Asia, and has the clean, sweet taste of sugar. This can purchase be purchased in packets or in bakers bags for recipes needing a bigger portion.
The In The Raw website lists lots of awesome recipes that you can make with In The Raw products. I wanted to share one… but it was so hard to choose just one. I would love to share the Carrot Cupcakes with Cream Cheese Frosting and the Chunky Oatmeal Cookies. But we’ve been eating a lot of popcorn lately so I decided to share the Kettle Corn recipe.
Kettle Corn Recipe Using Monk Fruit In The Raw
- 4 teaspoons canola or coconut oil
- 1/3 cup popcorn kernels
- 4 teaspoons Monk Fruit In The Raw® Bakers Bag
- 4 teaspoons granulated sugar
- 1/4 teaspoon fine sea salt
In a deep skillet with a cover, heat the oil over medium-high heat. Sprinkle the popcorn over the bottom of the pot. Sprinkle the Monk Fruit In The Raw Bakers Bag, then the sugar over the popcorn and cover the pot. Slipping your hand into a long, heat protective mitt hold the pan just above the heat and shake it constantly. When the popping slows noticeably, dump the contents of the pan in to a large bowl. Sprinkle on the salt and toss using two wooden paddles or mixing spoons. Kettle corn keeps for 24 hours.
Sounds yummy, doesn’t it?!? I am looking forward to trying quite a few of the recipes listed on the In The Raw website and I am definitely looking forward to trying out the Monk Fruit In The Raw product. I’m happy to know that I have a reduced sugar and calorie option with wholesome ingredients… that still tastes great.
