    This is hardly “Sugar Free”. Agave nectar is basically pure sugar.

    1. Hello Jonathan, Thank you for visiting our website. If this is your first time visiting I will tell you we have taught all 167k subscribers that everything can be swapped out based on your health and lifestyle, as well as wellness. We have gone over many times in our issues and articles that if you have a sugar senstivity or are just trying to cut back removing white sugar is typically the first step. As our readers gravitate towards healthier alternatives they then go to agave which is low glycemic and better then white sugar but still sugar. For our more advanced readers and subscribers they know they can use stevia extract in place of sugar and fruit to sweeten which we go over a lot. So depending on your bioindividuality you can certainly be as strict as you choose. Since the bulk of our readers are gravitating towards a healthier lifestyle the transition period needs to be gradual for lasting results. We find in our polling that readers that slowly transition from white sugar to agave using 1/2 the sugar they would of white sugar get the low glycemic benefits, they then from there can transition to fruit as sweetener and then to full out stevia leaf. Do feel free to modify the recipe to your needs and note their are suggestions and options with all these depending on how rigid your diet is.

      I hope your day and week are going great and we do thank you for stopping by. Wishing you great love, health, and abundant happiness today and always!
