These Sugarless Heart Mints are very easy to make & only two calories each. The recipe is made with Swerve sweetener, a product relatively new to the market, which I was an ambassador for last year. While that program is over, I am still investigating the use of this natural zero calorie sweeter* in different recipes. One thing I had noticed about their confectionery version was that when concentrated, it sort of gives you a cooling sensation. This seemed perfect for making mint candies.
The light pink hearts were only colored with juice, while the deeper pink was achieved with a natural food coloring.
- 1 1/2 cups Swerve Confectionery style
- 3 tbs No sugar added Cranberry juice
- 1/4 tsp mint extract
- **optional 3-4 drops red food coloring
Mix ingredients together well until smooth.
Divide into 6-8 small balls and roll out on board lightly dusted with Swerve.
Use small heart cookie cutter (about an inch or smaller) to make heart shapes.
Place hearts on parchment to dry at least 3 hours before storing.
*not quite zero really, but it is considered zero as their is less than 1 calorie per one tsp serving. It is extremely low calorie regardless.
