Blendtec sure loves their high sugar recipes, 14.5 grams in a 4oz pop… Newsflash, agave is not a healthy alternative to sugar. It’s still sugar, and a highly concentrated one. Would love to see the use of stevia perhaps in some of these recipes instead…
I am aware that I can use substitutions, and I am comfortable with cooking, as well as with health/nutrition facts. Not everyone is however, and look to sites like Blendtec for tasty and preferably healthy recipes. This is evidenced by the many many comments to your recipes indicating that people are disappointed in the sugar content or choices in oils used, for example. When writing a recipe, you have the option of choosing the ingredients used, why not opt for the better and healthier option? Why not be a leader in health and wellness, as your product is so widely recognized in the wellness community? It’s just as easy to write a recipe using stevia instead of agave. If people want to use the unhealthy choice, let them make the substitution! I’d go to Nabisco, or Betty Crocker, or the like for unhealthy recipes….
We encourage everyone to make substitutions and variations to our recipes to make them their own. You can certainly use another sweetener. We are working on updating our recipes to indicate the use of other sweeteners. We are also making a greater effort to incorporate other sweeteners in our new recipes we are developing.
Where do I find mango yogurt?
