How to Convert Stevia Powder Into Syrup

Save

You can turn any liquid into a syrup with gelatin. Water, flavored water, sweetened water -- stevia-sweetened water -- all convert to syrup equally well with unflavored gelatin. Powdered stevia is about 10 times sweeter than sugar, so it adds no detectable volume to the base liquid. Simply reduce the gelatin's firmness to a syrup consistency by reducing the amount of powdered gelatin to about 1/4 of the amount asked for in the label's instructions.

Step 6

Chill the bowl of gelatin in the refrigerator for 30 minutes; it will have the consistency of simple syrup. Store the stevia syrup in an airtight container in the refrigerator for about 5 days, or until it develops a film on top.
