d.i.y.friday ~ Make Homemade Stevia Extract  


Here is an easy sugar-free sweetener that you can make at home!

Last Sunday I popped some fresh stevia leaves in a jar and covered it with vodka and today I strained them out and simmered the liquid for 30 minutes to make a homemade stevia extract to naturally sweeten our smoothies (if needed)!

I truly should’ve made this after 36 hours of soaking but – I forgot.

And it seems fine but the longer you soak, the more bitter it may be.

You can also avoid more bitterness by not letting it boil when you are heating it up.

Here’s a video:

And that’s all there is to it!!

Bottle it up, put on your proud smug face, and then tell all your friends!

Lookie what I just did!!

Happy DIY-ing!!!
