Six-Pack of Summer Sweetness – Swerve and KitchenAid Giveaway

Yum

Low Carb Strawberry Hand PiesSummer goes by far too quickly, and it only seems to get faster and faster with every passing year.  Here we are in August already, which means summer is more than halfway through and the school year will is creeping up.  I went to shopping the other day because I needed some more t-shirts and tanks, and I could barely find any.  They were all tucked away in the clearance section, with only odd sizes left in each colour, while the racks were filled with heavier clothes already heralding the change of seasons. I am simply not ready for this!  I feel this way every year, but I want to hang on to summer and enjoy it a bit more.  I want to go to the beach and run through the sprinklers with my kids.  I want to grill out and eat al fresco and sip cold drinks on the patio.  Of course, I can still do all of this for a few weeks yet, but it already has that sense of rushing by me and slipping away before I can catch my breath.

Low Carb Chocolate Raspberry Gelato

One of the best parts of summer is the availability of so many fresh foods.  Our growing season is pretty short up here in New England and I always try to make the most of summer produce.  I am sure I’m not the only one, I bet plenty of you are cramming in all the fresh goodies while you can!

Now the good people at Swerve Sweetener want to help you eke out the last little bit of summer sweetness.  We’ve been chatting for a while about having me host another giveaway and they are remarkably generous.  I said that offering up free product would be enough but they didn’t agree with me.  So we settled on also giving away one of my favourite KitchenAid tools, the Five Speed Hand Blender.  I have one and I adore it.  This is not just some little immersion blender; it’s the ultimate all-purpose kitchen item, and it runs the gamut from chopping to whipping to blending.

And on top of that, Swerve wants to give the winner not one, not two, not three, but SIX bags of granulated Swerve.  That’s why we’re calling this the Six Pack of Sweetness giveaway.  You will be set to make all of your favourite low carb summer desserts with this prize, and I daresay you will be able to make some fall and winter desserts too!

You don’t need to do much more than leave a comment to enter this giveaway, but I am going to ask you to help me out a bit on one thing.  I have long been trying to get Swerve to be more active on Pinterest, and I know many of you have Pinterest accounts.  It’s just such a perfect fit, because food is such a visual medium and there are so many wonderful desserts and treats that can be made with Swerve.  So you will also have the option of following Swerve on Pinterest for two bonus entries.

Sugar-Free Mango Cream Popsicles

I started a Pinterest board called Potential Swerve Makeover Recipes, because I think it’s such a versatile sugar alternative.  There are so many sweet treats out there just begging to be made sugar-free. If you want to be a part of that group board, just leave your Pinterest handle in your comments and I will happily add you!

    I use swerve in almost all my baking, especially cheesecakes. I have lost 33 lbs over the last year on a low-carb diet and enjoy learning how to change up family favorites to lo-carb versions to keep my family healthy. With a large family, would love to win those 6 bags of swerve and the mixer for my cauliflower/potato recipes.

  2. Alison says

    I would make creme de mint brownies, pumpkin bread, chocolate protein shakes…the list goes on and on. There are so many uses and possibilities!

  3. Judy says

    I’d make some fruit purees to have on hand to use with my Soda Stream. (I’m trying to stay away from sodas!)

  4. Chris says

    I made a cheesecake last week that I make occasionally; the recipe calls for Splenda, but I substituted Swerve to see if there was any difference. After dessert, my sis-in-law asked me what I’d done differently because the taste was so much better!. She said she can always taste the artificial sweetener in my cheesecake, and wondered if I’d gone off my diabetic diet! Thank you, Swerve!!!

  5. says

    Hmm, I love trying new sweeteners that make favorite treats more forgiving, and that looks like the ultimate all-in-one kitchen gadget!

  6. Cathy says

    I’m just starting with sugar substitutes. Would love to try the Swerve. I love desserts so the blender would be used to make as many desserts as possible!

  7. Mary Anna says

    Pretty neat! I use my current (kinda elderly, not so cool as a kitchenaid one) hand blender for mashed cauli mostly, and soups too! I love swerve, too, so this would be really cool to win!

  8. says

    I made your strawberry hand pies, nutella, and cookie dough ice cream, amongst other tasty dessert recipes from other blogs! So good!

  9. Cheryl says

    I’d probably make one of everything! Although I’d start with that yummy looking cookie dough ice cream.

  10. Amy says

    I would make more Strawberry Handpies and Samoa Bars…. along with waffles to stock my freezer with. Do you have any idea when there will be more confectioner’s Swerve back in stock? It’s been out of stock for at least a few days on the swerve website and the price was inflated last week on amazon.

  11. Tiffany Davis says

    How much easier would brocc/cheese soup be? And all my canning would go so much smoother! I want one!!!

  12. Pam says

    I’d have to try your cookie dough ice cream and your hand pies, plus some fruit Popsicles first…then make your blueberry cream cheese coffeecake (my favorite)!

  13. Kelly says

    Love, love, love Swerve! I really like it for icing and use it for all my desserts that I’m feeding to non sugar free people. Would love to win this giveaway!

  14. Shannon says

    I have lemon poppyseed muffins in the oven right now, but had to use xylitol because I don’t have any swerve. Please add me to the swerve Pinterest board – Shannon Bell.

  15. sarah max says

    I love these hand blenders! I had a nice one but it broke :( I love the attachments like the chopper. I use it all the time to chop small amounts of nuts, etc. instead of hauling out a food processor. This one looks like it has a cup attachment so just being able to make a single smoothie with it will be great!

  16. Kimberly says

    My favorite food site announcing a giveaway on my birthday, what could be better! Only my fabulous low-carb birthday cake based on one of your recipes has me more excited today.

  17. Miranda says

    I typically just use stevia, so it would be interesting to try swerve and see if it improves my baking.

  18. Dyanne Spease says

    I would use this hand blender for making my husbands extra hot salsa and for a sweet something maybe some lemon curd for a lemon meringue pie!

  19. says

    I would love to start baking more with my children. Before we started a low carb lifestyle a few months ago for health reasons, my kids and I baked togther all the time. With the holidays coming up I would love to start preparing for holiday baking all while still staying on our low carb path.

  20. Sheryll Ziemer says

    I’ll be making a torte, with dates and nuts for the crust, so I will need the food processor container. Topping it off with fresh raspberries – more dates, some lemon and zest and almond butter. Can’t wait!

  21. Kathy says

    I LOVE SWERVE! I use it for all my sweets now and never even miss the sugar! I could use the hand blender for chilled summer fruit soup.

  22. Christina says

    Looking forward to making my favorite baked goods with swerve. I like the attachments that come with the blender. My current hand blender only has one.

  23. Wendy says

    In so grateful fro your amazing recipes and love love love swerve confectioners. Wish they made a brown sugar.

  24. Jeani says

    I’m anxious to try your ice cream recipes. I have found it difficult to replicate the texture of ‘regular’ ice cream using sugar free sweeteners.

  25. Theresa Hayes says

    I would use the Kitchen-Aid and Swerve make a low carb whipped cream and put that on EVERYTHING! Yummy!

  26. Leslie says

    Oh my goodness, what a wonderful give away. I’ve been wanting to try swerve for a while now, but finances haven’t allowed an order. What a blessing it would be to be able win some!

  27. says

    I love Swerve, and I’ve only used it in my coffee so far! I would love to make cookies with it.

    My pinterest name is healthyfitjenn – would love to be added to your board!

  28. Pat Altenhof says

    Since I have been low carbing, my taste for sweet things has lessened quite a bit – – it is like my taste buds have come alive… But with Swerve, I am confident that if I need to sweeten something, I am using a safe product… I would be adding Swerve, cinnamon and toasted chopped pecans to softened cream cheese to use as a spread for my Muffin in a Minute…. yummy…..

  29. Melanie E. says

    What an awesome giveaway! I am almost out of my Swerve!!! When you posted about the raspberry limeade, I was just thinking how I wanted an immersion blender! Ooh, and a broccoli cheese soup would be amazing. YUM!

  30. says

    Ooh! I would so make some sugar free jams with this prize package! I just bought some canning jars and no sugar needed pectin and local peaches are just starting to come in. Yum!

  31. says

    I would make smoothies, and ice cream for starters and then on to trying more recipes from all day I dream about food. Love your posts and look forward to them.
    Blessings, Margot

  32. sjl330 says

    I will make ice cream with the Swerve and use the mixer to mix it all up! Along with using it for pancakes, whipped cauliflower and chopping veggies.

  33. says

    I really like Swerve, and I am a pretty lazy cook, so these would be awesome to grab instead of pulling the big machines out of the cupboard. Very little counter space in my kitchen :-)

  34. Brie G says

    I have never tried Swerve, and would love to! With the chopper, I’d love to create some new low carb casseroles!

  35. Linda says

    I still haven’t found a sweetener that I feel is safe yet still tastes good. I have heard wonderful things about Swerve and can’t wait to try it, especially in a cheesecake!

  36. Carrie says

    I love seeing and trying new recipes posted by Swerve. What a great alternative Swerve is to sugar! I plan to make a Banana-Coconut cream pie and ice cream.

  37. Becky says

    I can’t wait to make your chocolate mousse with raspberry recipe, and also the coconut flan for my husband!

  38. Kate says

    I’ve been experimenting with cookie butter recipes lately, so I would make a healthier/sugar free version with swerve! YUM!

  39. Carrie says

    What a great combo – All Day I Dream About Food (& who doesn’t???) & Swerve! I want to make more ice cream. :)

  40. Rebecca Childers says

    Gosh, I’m new to Swerve! I recently found out I am insulin-resistant and found came upon your blog! Would learn to use these fun baking tools with this Swerve I keep reading about. Maybe make smoothies, milk shakes, cheesecake! All my guilty pleasures made healthier!

  41. Donalda Martin says

    Oh what I could make with both of these. Fudgesicles, soups, creamed pies and the list goes on and on. Thanks for a chance to win.

  42. Pansy says

    Swerve is my all time favorite sweetener, I buy 6 to 12 bags at a time! I like the confectioners the best, then I don’t have to grind it for recipes. We love cinnamon coffee cake and cheesecake!

  43. Jude says

    I love Kitchenaid appliances!! I won’t buy anything else now, but I’ve never seen this. I’m thinking that, even if I don’t win I’m going to get me one of these.

    And I’d love to try Swerve. I read a lot about it, but I simply cannot find it locally.

  44. MARY Ellen says

    Thanks for hosting this giveaway I am learning lots about low carb eating from you. I would like to be part of your pinterest page too ,
    Memaof2

  45. Stephanie says

    I got a three-pack of Swerve based on your recommendation. Now I’m hooked! (And I love their ‘sweet’ emails too!)

    • Stephanie says

      I was so anxious to comment, I didn’t follow the rules. :( I want to make whipped cream (simple, yes … but finger-lickin’ delicious!) with Swerve and my new KitchenAid hand blender!

      • Carolyn says

        That’s okay, once you comment, you’re entered! As long as you note it on the rafflecopter giveaway form.

  46. Becky W. says

    I forgot to tell what I’d make with the Swerve and hand:

    ice creams, sorbets, slushy drinks, puddings, custards, and cheesecake with fruit puree´
    and more

  47. Volanta Peng says

    I’d love to make some pumpkin pie with real pumpkin(well, once pumpkin season starts…) and whipped cream!

  48. 1956okie says

    Blackberry cobbler!! And frozen margaritas! (Not together, necessarily! Ha!) Find me on Pinterest at 1956okie. Thanks!

  49. says

    I love Swerve…. I started buying it at my local Whole Foods after seeing you use it in your recipes. I’m always looking for great sugar free alternatives and Swerve is definitely one of the best I’ve tried! Thank you!

  50. Cathie D says

    I love my immersion blender and I would be content with just the Swerve! LOL Thanks for the chance to win…I used Swerve in my recently made Apricot jam with the No Sugar Needed packet. I also used it last season to make pickles…I am so impressed with Swerve!
    Thanks for the chance to win and pointing out your Pintrest board

  51. Melanie says

    I LOVE Swerve! We order it in bulk :) My favorite thing to make is Strawberries and Cream. This blender would be awesome to use! Hope I win. :)

  52. Russell says

    So many things I could make with these wonderful Kitchen Tools, Hmmm but if I had to choose one I think it would be a Strawberry Balsamic for a Spinach Salad or a Dark Chocolate and Strawberry sauce over a rich and creamy Cheese Cake!

  53. says

    I would love to make a chocolate peanut butter smoothie! I live in the San Francisco Bay Area and haven’t been able to find Swerve out here in the stores. From all the fantastic comments I really want to use Swerve from now on! :-)

  54. celeste says

    I have strawberries frozen and my husband (diabeti stroke patient) has been craving some kind of dessert I thought maybe a jam for toast.

  55. Taylor says

    There are so many things I would love to make. I would probably start with those delicious looking hand pies though.

  56. Mary Seale says

    New to swerve. Absolutely love it. I am a kitchen gadget lover/user. Would be great to use……….m

  57. Linda says

    I just saw that blender and would love to have it. I am just getting into swerve and want to cook healthier, low carb, and sugar-free for my family! I LOVE your blog!

  58. Marcia Hunsicker says

    I have only just started reading this blog, and so far only tried 2 recipes. I tried the broccoli cheddar soup, which requires a blender, and I don’t have one…so I had to use my tiny 4 cup food processor (resulting in a giant mess). Would love to have this blender to help on those kind of recipe experiment days!

  59. DJ says

    I am thrilled with this contest! I usually cook/bake with Truvia, and have been curious about switching to Swerve! I think I may have whimpered a little at the sight of the KitchenAid hand blender…soooo excited!! Thank you for the chance!

  60. Beth Johnson says

    I want to experiment with all of the delicious recipes I have involving sugar that I have not used in quite awhile!

  61. Melissa says

    I would love to have that Kitchen Aid Hand Blender! It would make life so much easier. Thanks for all the great recipes!

  62. Vickie Grissom says

    I’m not sure what I would make first. There are so many things and not enough time. But I am really ready for it to cool down outside so I can bake more without feeling guilty about it! Thank you and the folks at Swerve for this awesome giveaway!

  63. Carolyn says

    I’ve been dying to make those mango creamsicles, and the chocolate raspberry gelato. What a fun giveaway!

  64. Kathleen Heinsberg says

    What a great addition to one’s cooking arsenal! My friend has one of those and swears by it. I would love to make a creamy whipped dark chocolate pudding!

  65. Sarah says

    I love this giveaway! We use swerve every day! From putting it into my coffee, making banana bread for my children, smoothies, and daily desserts! Love it!

  66. Donna Dugo says

    I have replaced all the real sugar in my sugar bowls with swerve and no one in my house has noticed. I also use it to bake with and in my protein drinks.

  67. Adelina Soto-Thomas says

    The Hubby and I are both diabetic and have been struggling. We like chocolate and peanut butter…so I think I’d be experimenting with all sorts of desserts that combine the two!!

  68. Jennifer C says

    I’d make more of those wonderful almond coconut butter cookies. But I use Swerve daily in my fruit smoothies to add a bit more sweetness. It is so good! Love your blog!

  69. liz says

    There’s too many recipes to choose from! I’m saving up for an ice cream maker, and the cookie dough ice cream recipe blew my mind, and made me realize how much I NEED that machine!

    Anything chocolatey with peanut butter, like those popsicles you’ve recently posted (I saw them last night and realized that though I have popsicle makers from IKEA, I might need a few more molds for those..) are my go-to sweet. Another favorite is some low-carb granola mixed into a light nut butter cream (for which I use Justin’s brand, and my favorite flavor of all is the vanilla almond).

    Thanks for hosting the giveaway!

  70. Jennifer Clark says

    Right now I have your brownie donuts in the oven. Next I want try the peanut butter swirl brownies.

  71. Becki says

    What would I make, hm…I would love to try homemade whipped cream to top some Swerve-sweetened desserts!

  72. Denise says

    I am diabetic, and would love to see more recipes that use Swerve as the “natural” sweetener, such as Coconut Pie, Fudge Pie, Carrot Cake, 7-Layer Bars, and my favorite Cream of Coconut Cake (the one where you punch holes in it to pour the Condensed Milk, and Cream of Coconut in).

  73. Danielle Laughlin says

    I’m new to swerve but i like it so far and i definitely love kitchenaid. i’ve been on an ice cream kick so i’d make ice cream! all the kinds.

  74. Catherine says

    I wanted to make a delicious ice cream. Oh and some cherry margaritas. Yummy tummy. I am on pinterest. Look for me Catherine Hurst.

  75. Terry Sz says

    Would love to try Swerve for any number of great desserts. The KA would be a time saver and great little tool in the kitchen!

  76. Lisa says

    My Swerve obsession started with your Low Carb Chocolate Chocolate Chip Ice Cream! Still my favorite chocolate ice cream recipe! IDK how I could’ve lasted this long without sugar, nothing compares to Swerve! Can’t wait to get my hands on some powdered Swerve! p.s. I LOVE YOUR FOOD :)

  77. Faye says

    I’m working on healthy popsicles… going to make the mango tonight! My daughter’s favorite fruit!. Next will be avocado lime!

  78. says

    Thanks for this awesome opportunity to win the best sweetener around (the blender is pretty boss too)!

    I will be making smoothies, cinnamon rolls (with almond flour), chocolate cake with chocolate frosting, chocolate chip cookies, fluffy white frosting, and a few recipes that I’d like to “remake” sugar and wheat free.

    Can you tell I love to bake?

    Thanks again and have a great week!

  79. Rosanne says

    Thanks for the giveaway! I have tried other erythritol sweetners but havent tried swerve yet. I’m definitely interested!

  80. says

    Swerve is great! I know fall isn’t here yet, but the cool weather the last couple nights has put me in the mood for your pumpkin whoopie pies.

  81. Toni Schenk says

    I would love to try the Raspberry Dark Chocolate Gelato . I use Swerve all the time and it’s excellent.

  82. Ruth says

    first I will make a whipped coffee, and then I will make whipped cream to put on it and and and and. Smiles, Ruth

  83. Irene says

    I honestly have no clue what I would make. There are so many awesome choice.

    On a completely unrelated note, I would LOVE your remake of the Sara Lee Coffee cake. It is a taste I remember fondly from a past life. Your cinnamon coffee cake is so awesome, I figure you could make minor adjustments. I don’t have that ability. I just make your recipe and enjoy, enjoy, enjoy. Thank you for sharing so generously. You rock.

  84. Sarah G says

    Oh my! Now this giveaway is one I could do so much with! Please let me win, please let me win, pleaseeeeeeeee!!! Now, I sound like my kids.

  85. Anita D says

    I don’t even know where I would start with the Swerve but I know I would love to get back to baking again!!
    I will look for your other board on Pinterest as well. I’m cnadavis.
    Thanks!!!

  86. Phyllis R. says

    It would be fun to unleash that blender in my kitchen! One recipe I have been wanting to try is chocolate-avocado pudding. I’ve heard it’s really good!

  87. Stephanie Hsieh says

    I’m not sure what I’d try first – but looking through your blog gives me hope that healthy eating isn’t draconian. :) I’d love to try one of your ice cream recipes!
    I’d love to be added to your pinterest board too… it’s the same as my email, I think.

    • Carolyn says

      It’s not draconian at all! It can be incredibly indulgent, although you do have to be careful you don’t go overboard. But it’s so high fat and filling, you usually aren’t tempted to overeat.

  88. Laura says

    I am a beginner at low carb baking. I would love to make muffins for my husband’s breakfast every day! The possibilities are exciting! Pinterest lc8022

  89. Wendy says

    Hmmm, I’d make brownies or cookies! Since going low-carb, I have been craving some baked goods and have not tried any measure-for-measure sugar replacements.

  90. Marcia says

    I love Swerve I use it in everything that calls for sweetener. I love making Fat Bombs with it. It would be awesome to win some – and the stick blender is cool too. Kitchenaid is amazing!

    • Carolyn says

      At home, this would be very tricky. Working milk solids into chocolate requires some heavy duty equipment to not end up with an awful, gritty texture.

  91. Kathy says

    We had a large family party this weekend and I made your Nanaimo Tart (with Swerve), and I think that it is my favourite low carb dessert! Because you are enthusiastic about Swerve I ordered both types on line (wish that they had a brown sugar substitute too), and they have worked well in everything I have made, and best of all, no “tummy” troubles. I do have a question though, which I emailed Swerve, but no answer yet…perhaps you could advise me Carolyn? “I purchased both granular and powdered Swerve and have been very happy with both of these products. I find that the powdered Swerve dissolves more easily, and wonder if there is any application in which the granular would be superior, or could you just use powdered for every recipe? It would be more convenient to just stock one type, but if a recipe called for granular, how much powdered would you use? The powdered seems to have more volume for the same weight of granular, so I’m thinking that you would need to use more of it”. Winning the hand blender would be awsome, but I would be thrilled with just the Swerve prize!

    • Carolyn says

      Hi Kathy – They are usually so good at answering questions but you know what? This is the kind of question they would send my way anyway! 😉 Here’s my answer…the granular is going to be best in recipes that depend on the crystalline structure. For example, cake recipes where you cream the butter with the sweetener, because that helps whip small air bubbles into the butter before adding other ingredients. The powdered won’t do that so you will end up with a slightly heavier product. Typically, you can sub them 1 for 1 (even if the volume and weight are a little different). I do this a fair bit when I am running out of granular. I also find that the powdered seems to have more fiber and can over-thicken things a bit. I’ve used it in caramel and didn’t like the end result as much as the granular.

      Does that help?

  92. Kathy says

    I forgot to mention that I do have a Pinterest account, but I’m not sure of what I’m supposed to include in this entry…sorry for being dumb… I did “follow” the Potential Swerve Makeover Recipes…is that what I needed to do?

  93. Kim says

    I am addicted to your coconut milk fudge and samoa bars – my daughter loves the strawberry cream cheese popsicles! Pinterest – kimsauro – love the Pinterest idea!

  94. says

    I just read the Wheat Belly Cookbook and have tons of recipes I want to try! I think the first thing I would make is the chocolate cream pie with an almond crust.

  95. P.J. Stietz says

    I use a bullet blender, which I love, but need something more versatile. The Kitchen Aid blender sounds perfect!

  96. Angie J. says

    I am a huge smoothie fan so that would definitely be the first thing I would make. I have been doing a decent job of giving up sugar which has limited my deserts..I could go for some ice cream ; )

  97. Beth Endres says

    I was just looking at the Swerve website but what I wanted to try was out of stock! This would be great to win!

  98. Mary says

    I would first make your Dark Chocolate Almond Bark, and then something using each of the five speeds just for the enjoyment factor. Have you ever made 30 second mayonnaise?

    • Allison Roebuck says

      I would use it to make anything I can use it for. And I love swerve…no aftertaste like splenda or trivia. :)

  99. Theresa says

    With Fall right around the corner, I would use the blender to make some curried lumpkin soup. I would love to make some ice cream & biscottis too.

  100. minky says

    Oh my goodness, I would want to make every single recipe on your blog, each one looks amazing! I’ve never tried swerve, would love to use in all the yummy sweet recipes here! And the kitchenaid mixer would be a Godsend!

  101. Anne says

    I already use Swerve Sweetener in all my sugar-free, low carb baking. They don’t sell it here in California, but it’s the only sweetener I like so I order it online!

    • Carolyn says

      they are working on getting into stores all over the east coast, but it’s best to buy online for now. Use my DREAM10 code and you get 10% off.

    • says

      Great news! Whole Foods Market in your area will have Swerve on their shelves starting in September. Also, if you visit the DC area you can find Swerve at the Yes! Organic Market locations around the city.

  102. Lisa fournier says

    Carolyn, your food makeovers are inspiring, and delicious. Swerve has changed my desserts from berries and whipped cream back to cakes and donuts. I’ve never been able to tolerate the taste of stevia alone, and I’ve made Swerve believers of most of my friends.
    One of my hobbies is doing recipe makeovers. Please add me to the Pinterest board. Lisafspicks

  103. Sherie says

    I would make some kind of cheesecake concoction for sure!! It’s been ages since I had a good cheesecake!

  104. Rina says

    Swerve is my favorite sweetener! I use Swerve daily making fresh jam, cupcakes, cookies, muffins, puddings, and especially cold treats! I use Swerve to sweeten delicious coconut milk (or organic cream) lime sherbet, chocolate, cherry, vanilla, peach, or nectarine ice creams and popsicles. Just a little touch of Swerve enhances the flavor in all my frozen treats. One of my favorite all time treats is your condensed milk. Swirl a little heavenly dark chocolate in a couple of tablespoons of homemade condensed milk, (caramelized condensed milk works too),and drizzle over a microwave GF LC Swerve sweetened cupcake in a minute for an easy dessert. Taste testing the chocolate sauce is mandatory prior to topping the cupcake, just leave enough to drizzle.

  105. Angela Boehm says

    I just ordered swerve for the first time a couple of weeks ago and have been enjoying trying it out in all of it yumminess!

  106. Vanessa says

    I love Swerve I hope they continue to make this healthy sugar alternative available even more readily so everyone can enjoy it!

  107. Tonnia Williams says

    I am currently using Splenda as a substitute for a lot of my type 1 diabetic daughters “sweet” snacks. I would love to give Swerve a try. I have not found it in any stores around here.

  108. Christine says

    I would definitely try and make some sort of ice cream or fudge – and for the immersion blender the possibilities are endless!!

  109. Nancy says

    I would make some of your chocolate raspberry gelato! Yummo! I have a Pinterest account but have no idea what my handle is! I haven’t totally figured that site out yet! The name that appears on my boards is Nancy but somehow doubt that’s my handle. If you have time to enlighten this technically challenged foodie, I will comment again with my handle :) If not, no wories! Love your site!

  110. says

    I got my first bag of Swerve not too long ago. I haven’t tried many of your recipes yet, but have many of them pinned. I love to make desserts with sugar alternatives. It gives me such peace of mind to eat my desserts.

  111. Margi says

    Carolyn, there are so many recipes of yours I love, it’s hard to pick just one — but I especially love the Boston Cream Cake, the matcha Popsicles, the yummy pie crust for the hand pies/and regular pie crust, too! The recipe I have queued up is the chocolate birthday cake. YUM! I already tell everyone I know about your deliciousness but I will pin more. :)

  112. Jamie says

    I’d use the mixer to make whipped cream to pour over a yummy low carb chocolate cake that’s sweetened with Swerve.

  113. says

    My mom and I used to make a recipe from Pampered Chef for Broccoli Bars. It had a biscuit crust with a mayo/sugar/apple cider vinegar sauce and was topped with broccoli, bacon, sunflower seeds, and gold raisins. I’d love to swap out the sugar for the Swerve and use the hand blender to mix it all together so I could make little personal size servings instead of a huge batch.

  114. Peggy Cole says

    I would make your Boston Cream Pie again, and I hope to try your recipe for low carb sweetened condensed milk!

  115. Sarah W. says

    I just learned that I have a gluten intolerance and found an article about you in a diabetic magazine. I love your recipes, they have made the transition much easier. And swerve is a great way for me to enjoy my gluten free desserts without the guilt! I love to bake and cook and they kitchenaid would make life, and the transition, much easier.

  116. Dita says

    I plan to make carrot cake muffins. thanks for the opportunity to win the Swerve and also the stick blender/chopper. It looks like a handy item.

  117. Dita says

    Carolyn in today’s email you show a picture of what looks like a Cantalope Popsickle. Where would I find that recipe?? What is the name. I somehow missed it whenever it was posted. Please respond.

    • Carolyn says

      It’s a mango creamsicle. It’s not low carb, but I made them as a healthy snack for my kids. With Swerve, of course.

  118. Monica says

    My two recent fave uses for Swerve are red velvet cheesecake and a giant log of low carb cookie dough to slice and store in freezer for snacking.

  119. Nancy Patterson says

    I would make an awesome Flourless, Sugarless Chocolate Cake recipe I have from Suzanne Somers. It’s decadent, but a little involved. A hand mixer would help tremendously!

  120. Diana says

    I just received my Swerve samples the other day. I can’t wait to start using it in some of these delicious looking recipes, perfect timing!

  121. Debbie says

    I’m already a huge fan of swerve. I use it for all my sweetening needs. I recently made a great cheesecake using swerve and topped it with your recipe for lemon curd and used swerve

  122. Charmagne says

    I found your blog as I was looking for LoCarb recipes and found you! Wonderful resource, thank you! And I had never heard of Swerve and am anxious to try it.

  123. Carol Carlton says

    I’d make more yummy frozen treats in my ice-cream maker, as well as home-made salad dressings and dips.

  124. Jean B. says

    Gee, there are so many things to cook/bake. I think I would FINALLY make your divine-sounding cheesecake with the brownie base. (How do I limit this to just one recipe?)

  125. Maria says

    I’m a huge baker and have just in the last 6 months started to convert recipes from sugar to swerve or xylitol. Love love love it!!!

  126. Beverly says

    I would love to make some Dairy Free Sugar Free Salted Caramel Ice Cream using Brown Sugar Swerve for the caramel swirl and the ice cream base. I have used white granulated SWERVE and use it all the time, but I would love to try the powdered and the brown sugar types.

  127. Marsha Lynne says

    Swere sounds very interesting, never heard of it. Know other people that will be interested. With the Kitchen aid, I would mix raspberries and orange juice…so good!!

  128. says

    I would have to let me boyfriend pick what to make with it because he was recently diagnosed with diabetes and is trying to figure out how to eat low carb and still have a little sweetness in his life (besides me ha ha).

  129. Carolyn says

    I had never heard of Swerve before. Thank you for the info. I would love to use it for everyday coffee and beverages. I would start baking again with a good low-cal substitute for sugar. I’d especially like to make some cupcakes.

  130. Kristie says

    Hi! Love your blog! We must have been separated at birth because I, too, dream about food all day long! Tried Swerve for the first time this past weekend. I knew if you used it than it had to be good! Seriously, it’s your blog (and a few others) that inspire me and keep me preparing healthy and delicious meals for my family. I’ve learned so much from you, and I am extremely grateful to you. If I won the Swerve, I’d try making the hand pies–they remind me of my grandmother’s recipe. My Pinterest handle is KHSlovesDJS. Thank you!

  131. Jackie says

    I have enjoyed attempting many of your recipes. All of them taste wonderful! Truly have made it easier to be not only gluten free but low carb in this crazy carb-addicted world :-p

  132. Michele H says

    I haven’t used Swerve yet but I can’t wait to try after reading everyone’s comments. I want to make my own sorbet and ice cream.

  133. Kathy says

    Carolyn, for some strange reason, and I don’t know if this is a fault with my computer or your site, but I am unable to read your response to my question for August 6, 2013, at 7:15. The text of your answer is superimposed over my question so I cannot decipher it, and there is this same problem with all the other responses from there on down to the end of the post, although everything is clear earlier. Since I am intensely interested in your advice, could I ask you if you could send your answer to my email address? Thank you so much…kind regards, Kathy

  134. Jennifer S. says

    I think I would use these products to whip up some muffins – pumpkin ones. They’ve been on my mind already!

  135. Iya says

    I love Swerve! I’d love to make me some of that dark chocolate gelato you posted up there. Oh dear lawdy, that looks delicious…

    • Corly Wilson says

      I am looking forward to trying many of the recipes on All Day I Dream About Food that have Swerve in them!

  136. Teresa K says

    Your blog is a Godsend as I try to tame my sweet tooth AND get healthier! I’m looking forward to trying all of these recipes!

  137. Wendy A. says

    I have never tried Swerve, but would love to. Since becoming diabetic, life is not as good without sweets and treats! I miss French silk pie the most!

  138. V says

    I love Swerve and would use it to make apricot and plum jam. My stock is getting low with all your wonderful recipes. I have to admit that I have to lower down the quantity of it because my tolerance for the mint aftertaste seems to be not as good as you.

  139. Monica says

    I would love to try swerve. I am in need of a new sweetener for my coffee. The sucralose gave me headaches and the Stevia takes away the flavor. I also am in need of the 5 Speed Hand Blender as I am new to being Gluten Free and need it for making all of the delicious recipes I’ve been bookmarking to make.

  140. Heather from Canada says

    I would love this! I’ve been wanting an immersion blender for ages. I would start with a milkshake made with frozen raspberries, cream, vanilla and Swerve!

  141. Shawn Morrison says

    I’m really liking Swerve so far in everything I have tried. I think my favorite so far would be the lemon poppyseed bundt cake…..yes I’d make another one of those 😀

  142. Amy says

    I’d make Dk choc gelato, strawberry cheesecake & pumpkin bread!!
    Thanks for the opportunity! I love Swerve, & I can only purchase online!

  143. Riley Beeck says

    Love your blog! It’s my go to when I need a recipe for something sweet. I’d probably just make hoards of your peanut butter caramel shortbread bars! :)

  144. Brooke says

    I would make strawberry jam and peanut butter cheesecake :). But really, I almost always substitute an alternative in any recipe that calls for sugar. I would love a new tasty alternative.

  145. Colleen Gorman says

    I’d make lots of things. I love the idea of a stick blender with attachments. I’d make a cherry-cocoa smoothie.

  146. Heidi says

    I have to start following the Anti-Candida Diet and have switched to gluten-free, dairy-free, and sugar-free. Love following your blog and I’ve already tried a lot of your recipes! I haven’t tried Swerve yet but I’m seeing it everywhere and I’d love to try it and I could definitely use the Kitchenaid!

  147. Katy says

    I would make gluten free desserts and the hand mixer would be great at combining my ingredients for smaller size recipes.

  148. Sharon says

    Cupcakes! I miss them since going low carb! Been trying new recipes every week and they’re on my list. Love the choc mug cake! As I change over my pantry to a low carb lifestyle, I’ve found I always need Swerve in stock.

  149. jeanette says

    I would love to use Swerve in all my cooking and the KitchenAid mixer would be great for my son who is going away to college he could use this since he loves to cook and make smoothies.

  150. Shelly says

    I’ve just gone low-carb/gluten-free at the advice of my physician within the past few weeks. I’m struggling a little, mostly because I’m a (now former) self-professed sugar junkie. I miss my sweet treats dearly and your blog has been a tremendous resource. Whatever I’m craving, there’s a recipe with delicious results! And six bags of Swerve plus Kitchen-Aid would make a happy girl of one who thought she was about to leave baking behind. : )

  151. Linnea says

    My blender has been broken for a while and I would love to be able to blend things again. This gadget looks like it would replace a few in the kitchen! And I LOVE swerve, any sugar free dessert tastes great without weird aftertaste!

  152. Michele says

    I just found out that I’m diabetic also, so these two products will really open up a whole new world for me! I’ve already begun experimenting with almond flour. A fruit syrup would be yummy!

  153. Tamara Hamilton says

    Swerve is the best! Even those that eat sugar can’t tell when I use it. Now add this blender oh my! Smoothies, puddings, cheesecake … The possibilities are endless.

  154. Maria Isais says

    I recently purchased Swerve when it was on sale buy 2 get 1 free. It is definitely becoming my sweetener of choice.

  155. Maureen Locke says

    There are so many possibilities that I’m not sure what to start with. I keep changing my mind.. lol I’ll say roasted strawberry parfaits though :)

  156. Angie says

    I’m almost out of swerve. I use it everyday in my coffee and I love to bake and do low carb treats to satisfy my sweet tooth.

  157. Patty Forbes says

    My whole kitchen is Kitchen Aid so this would fit perfectly, I have been making a cream cheese jello pudding desert and this mixer would work much better

  158. Claire says

    I have so many recipes floating around that I can’t decide! I’d probably roll with some low carb cookies and muffins… yum!

  159. AzBkey says

    I’ve never been able to afford a KitchenAid mixer and haven’t found Swerve where I live yet, so thank you for this opportunity!

  160. Jolie says

    I would make several desserts, ice cream, cakes, brownies, and cheesecakes. I love to bake and haven’t had a chance to use swerve on my new adventure of eating a low carb diet and eliminating sugars.

  161. Valerie says

    I will most certainly make your cinnamon roll coffee cake. I’ve made it threes times in three weeks and have used up most of my Swerve!! Delish!!

  162. Carol LaBella says

    Would love to win this blender. Just found out I’m diabetic and doctor says I have to lose weight and she suggested juicing. This would sure help!

  163. Robin says

    I would make a lot of things. Good tools make my life easier since I don’t get around easily. With the Swerve, I would make a variety of sf items to keep my family happy!

  164. Francesca Hirtle says

    What wouldn’t I make…OMG…The possibilities are endless. Tropical Smoothies for sure, may be even turn them into popsicles. Definitely fruit hand pies of many kinds. Pumpkin soup. Butternut squash soup. Apple sauce…Just to name a few. 😉

  165. Jessica H. says

    I would love to try swerve in some of the recipes I have already, like the raw coconut balls I made the other day. Thank you so much for the wonderful giveaway!

    I love your blog. I just recently have had to change to a gluten free and sugar free diet and your blog has been a life saver. Before I finding your blog trying to cook/bake gluten and sugar free was over-whelming. I also, just the other day, check into Swerve as a sugar substitute. I’m anxious to give it a try as the sugar substitute I’m presently using doesn’t appeal to me or my husband (trying to keep him happy too : ))
    I’m going to create a Pintrest recipe board that high-lights Swerve and the using it in recipes…mostly yours! Thank you for this opportunity to receive some bags of Swerve and a nice hand-held mixer…wanted one for a very long time. I’m particularly anxious to try making your Chocolate Mousse Parfait with chocolate chip cookies and fresh raspberries…yummy!

  167. says

    Hi Carolyn, I really like your blog. I’ve just recently had to change to a gluten and sugar free way of eating. Until I found your blog I was finding cooking/baking in this manner quite over-whelming. Thank you for all your great recipes.
    Just the other day I checked Swerve’s web-site to learn a little about their sugar substitute. The sugar substitute I presently use does not meet with my (or my husband’s) taste. I will have to order it as our health food companies do not carry it…maybe I can change that! : )
    I’d like to be a part of the Swerve Pinterest board and my Pinterest account is under my name Ruth E. Chidley.
    Thank you for the opportunity to be considered for receiving some bags of Swerve and a lovely Kitchen Aid hand held mixer…I’ve always wanted one.

  168. says

    Sorry for the third post…my iPad went black and dropped your web-site when I logged in my original post. Since it was not there I wrote it again. Now, when I posted my comment, both posts came up…lol! Oh the fun of the web cyber-space!

  169. Janna says

    I love your site and ideas, and I want to try Swerve but it isn’t sold in my area. Finding out I have Celiac disease and my husband is diabetic has led us to a low carb/gluten free lifestyle, and many of your recipes (especially the Raspberry scones) have been a wonderful addition to my cooking repertoire.

  170. Marianne says

    I would use the Swerve to make low-carb strawberry shortcake and the hand blender to whip farm-fresh cream to go with it. Yum!

  171. says

    My boys and I love to make cupcakes with Swerve, but I can’t deny that I’d love the hand mixer to whip up some homemade lotion!

  172. Don Lewis says

    I have been loyal to Kitchenaid brands for years. I especially enjoy using my Kitchenaid blenders to make delicious smoothies. I’m actually ordering some more Kitchenaid blender parts
    parts so that I can produce ever more great foods and drinks!

    • Carolyn says

      Hi. I already picked a winner and I thought I made it public on Rafflecopter but I guess not! Sorry about that. I am still somewhat new to working with Rafflecopter.

      • Melanie says

        OK, thanks! I’m used to blogs updating the original post or having a new post completely, so good to know! Off to order some Swerve on my own. ha!

  173. Katie says

    Hi Carolyn-
    Your blog has been my “go to” place for wonderful gluten free and low carb recipes! I had not heard of swerve sweetener until I read your blog, but would love to try it! You have been blessed with the ability to cook and create! I am grateful to you for sharing it with all of us!
