Lemon Peppermint Sorbet Using NuNaturals Peppermint NuStevia Liquid

I use peppermint in one form or another daily in my life. Here are some of the ways I use peppermint.

. To Aid in digestion ~ It has helped me many nights when I used to have acid problems.   I drink it as a tea.
. For A Headache ~ Sometimes when I get a headache, I rub peppermint into my temples
. When I Get Sinusitis and Colds ~  If my nose is stuffy, I sometimes put peppermint oil on a q-tip an put it in my nose.  It can really burn so I mix a little olive or coconut oil with it.
.  Head Lice ~ When I was younger, my friends mother would treat all her kids with peppermint oil when Head Lice were going through the school.   She never got head lice, but neither did I and I wasn't treated.
. Those Aches and Pains ~ If I don't have any joint flex in the house when I have joint pain, I rub peppermint oil on the spot.   Works as well as joint flex, but none of that seems to last long.

When NuNaturals ( https://nunaturals.com/ )  ask if I would like to review their Pure Liquid Peppermint NuStevia, I of course said yes.   I love peppermint, and stevia does NOT feed candida.  So this works out perfect for me.



The first thing I did when I opened the Peppermint NuStevia was to put a drop on my tongue.  POW!!  That is peppermint and there is no mistaking it.   Perfect for me since I can take all the peppermint you can give me.


My friend had given me a recipe for Lemon Peppermint Sorbet that I have been wanting to try so that is just what I did with my bottle of NuNaturals Peppermint NuStevia Liquid, which by the way is alcohol free.
Mmmmmmm this is so good!! Very refreshing!
Lemon Peppermint Sorbet                 
1 Cup Boiling Water
Zest Of 1 Lemon
1/2 Cup Lemon Juice
1/2 teaspoon NuNaturals Peppermint Liquid Stevia
1 1/4 teaspoons NuNaturals NuStevia No Carbs Blend






Mix all the ingredients together. If you have an ice cream freezer, you can use that. If not pour mixture into a 8X8 inch pan and put into the freezer. When frozen, blend in a blender until it is like a slushy. 

My goal was to take it out of the freezer while it was slushy and not have to put it in the blender, but my Hubs wanted me to go with him to a friends house..... so of course it froze solid.

I have also been using the Peppermint NuStevia in my ginger tea for digestion after a meal.

* I received a bottle of NuStevia Peppermint Liquid for review purposes.  In no way did this affect my review.  All thoughts and opinions are mine.

  1. You have no idea how much I love peppermint. The smell makes me happy and the taste is magnificent! I didn't know it worked on headaches though. I like that news!

  3. Wow, that recipe sounds great! I love peppermint too. I try not to eat too much sugar, but it's hard because it's so darn tasty. This product sounds like a really great idea, because sometimes artificial sweeteners can taste fake, but the peppermint flavor probably masks it.

    Lemon and peppermint sounds really good in a sorbet and since I have a bottle of peppermint oil, I think I might have to try this. Maybe it will work for my sinus issues too :)

    Thanks for the interesting review :)

  12. At the rate of 1/2 tsp per recipe, your bottle will last for ages!! How fantastically refreshing this looks - I'm closer to summer than you, so I'm looking forward to trying it!
