Do you use Stevia?

I use too much Splenda. I think it has caused me to crave more sugary foods. (Drinking a lot of hot green tea because of a cough for a couple of weeks.)
What do you think of Stevia, and have you been using it for awhile?

I use it as the form for Truvia, I really like it. I use it in my coffee, tea and cereal. I haven't touched sugar for a long time. I find for at least me it has no after taste and just as sweet as sugar.

I use stevia in hot drinks ( coffee and tea) as well as on some other items and it is good for me. It is different than sugar and Splenda, Equal or Sweet and Low, but if you can get used to any of those you can get used to Stevia. I have been using it for a couple of years now.

We use Stevia. I get it in little packets at Whole Foods. I love it! I use it in my tea-iced and hot. I don't have any other experience using it though because I'm a diabetic and I just stay away from all other artificial sweetners because they reek havoc with my digestive system. I use some sugar because I KNOW what it's doing and how to count it.

I like it. I've been using it for a couple of years now but can only use it in my tea. I've tried it in coffee, but just can't handle the difference. I figure if I only have one cup of coffee a day, I'm gonna have sugar. I would like to try baking with it, but I never have.

I don't use Stevia powder...

I use Stevia liquid. It is awesome. It comes in flavors, clear (like sugar), vanilla, lemon, chocolate..etc.

I use it in a nonfat greek yogurt and can make it any flavor w/ zero calories! So much healthier than the yogurts already flavored.

You can buy it at Amazon..

You can use it in tea, coffee, selter water, (there is a rootbeer flavor!)

Start with a couple of drops and add more to taste.

I use Stevia from a packet in my coffee. I usually only use 1/2 a packet and then add a little sugar in the raw. I do think it tastes different than sugar, but I like it better than any other artificial sweeteners.

I used to use splenda and didn't like the taste of stevia. But then I found Stevia in the raw and I think it is quite good. (Same company that makes sugar in the raw.)
