Hey hey foodies!
Here’s another treat using NuNatural’s new natural sweetener: tagatose.
There are several things I like about tagatose. While you can definitely taste a difference between it and sugar, it isn’t an unpleasant one. It’s delicious, VERY sweet, and replaces cup for cup. It also caramelizes the cookies like brown sugar does, which is great! It is also:
- low glycemic
- low calorie (6 cals per teaspoon)
- safe for diabetics
- won’t raise blood sugar
- prebiotic (feeds healthy bacteria)
- non- tooth decaying
- 100% natural
These cookies came out tasting very chewy and sweet. Please have patience with them when they first come out of the oven- they are very gooey, but if you let them sit, they firm up a little and remain very chewy. I much prefer this texture to crunchy cookies!
I am VERY happy with tagatose, and I’ve decided it’s my new sugar. I hope you love it as much as I do.

Adapted from this recipe
It can be a bit pricey to order this drink when you go out, but it's easy and less expensive to make your own cocktails at home -- even the copper mugs are fairly easy to find online or at stores that sell home goods. If you want to know how to make a Moscow Mule grab the best quality ingredients you can find and mix up a batch by following this recipe.
You'll need a Moscow Mule copper mug or highball glass to hold the drink, plus ice, 2 ounces of good vodka, 3 ounces of quality ginger beer -- the spicier the better -- and the juice of half a lime, which equals one tablespoon. Make sure you use actual ginger beer, not ginger ale, which is ginger flavored soda. It's also important to remember that the better the brands of liquor you use, the better flavored your drink will be. Using a lime wedge as a garnish is optional, but it definitely gives this cocktail its signature look.
Put two or three ice cubes into the glass or mug and squeeze the lime juice over it. Pour in the vodka, followed by the ginger beer. Stir everything for a few seconds, add the garnish, and then enjoy your Moscow Mule.
