We use Sukrin 1 which is an all-natural granulated stevia sweetener alternative to sugar with zero calories. You can grab Sukrin 1 over on Amazon UK.

Sukrin 1 doesn’t have that strange after taste that a lot of artificial sweeteners do!

It also shares the exact same sweetness and weight to sugar – which makes it really easy to substitute in recipes like this Baked Amaretto Peaches with Meringue.

If you are using a powdered sweetener, then please check how it compares to sugar. In some cases you’ll need to use less, as powdered sweeteners weigh less.
