It’s no secret we love Lakanto. From the very birth of the 131 Method, we have featured recipes using this zero-net-carb sweetener. From salad dressings to muffins to dessert, we jumped on the monk fruit train early, and often. Why? Well, this sweetener looks, tastes and acts like real sugar, but without all the calories and carbs. Oh! And the classic Lakanto sweetner is now available at Costco in a huge bag for a great price. But if you want some of their other products, shop online using our exclusive link to get a great discount.

Monk fruit extract is rated a zero on the glycemic index and has zero calories and zero carbs, making it a wise choice for diabetics.
Their goal is to heal people from their sugar addictions. They’re also committed to “processing monk fruit in a way that is sustainable, including having a zero-emissions processing plant.”
