All About Agave

Agave_SendOff1

When leading a healthier lifestyle, one of the first things to do is to ditch refined sugar. We all know that the stuff is bad! But sweet food and drinks taste oh, so good. So what is a girl to do? The answer can be found in the magical agave plant.

Agave is a perennial plant grown mostly in the south of Mexico, where more than 300 species of the plant grow. Agave is renowned for its many uses, particularly in food and drink. Blue agave nectar creates deliciously sweet syrup. The Aztec people thought agave was a gift from the gods and used its nectar to flavor food and drink. Agave has been used for thousands of years! How can you argue with that legacy?

Skinnygirl started from our love of the agave plant, and one thing we learned from our time perfecting our cocktails is that agave is one versatile plant. While you may think it just belongs in a margarita glass it can also pack a little punch of sweetness perfect for your favorite hot or cold beverage.

Today, agave is gaining in popularity; in fact, Bethenny herself uses agave in her coffee! Unlike sugar, it has a low glycemic index. You get the sweet taste without the spike in blood sugar levels and the inevitable energy crash that follows. Skinnygirl Agave Liquid Sweetener brings this option right to you with the sassy and sweet attitude that Skinnygirl does so well. Enjoy it at home, at the office or on the go. Skinnygirl Agave Sweeteners come in a convenient 1.68 ounce bottle that slips easily in your purse, making it a perfect accessory!
