Win a R1500 NOMU and SWEETLY hamper filled with delicious diabetic-friendly products.

I know that people with diabetes shouldn’t have a sweet tooth, but I do. And much as I wish my taste for freshly baked goodies and chocolate treats disappeared the day I was diagnosed, it did not. At all.

I used to think the only option was to bake with normal sugar and only have tiny portions (or accept that my blood sugar would spike). Now I’ve discovered SWEETLY and all my baking worries have flown out the window! Their baking sugar substitute acts exactly like real sugar, but without the blood sugar spikes. Take a look at this Diabetic’s Guide to Sweeteners and see what makes SWEETLY so different.

Diabetic-friendly treat

My other favourite treat at the moment is NOMU SKINNY hot chocolate… This magical low GI hot chocolate powder is delicious as hot chocolate but even better (in my opinion) stirred into plain full-cream yoghurt. It has 2g carb per serving (2 teaspoons) and results in absolutely zero blood sugar spikes. Magical! My kids and I have chocolate yoghurt for dessert every night.

And finally, I recently discovered the cinnamon and vanilla sugar substitute shakers, and I love them. If you’re looking for a little sprinkling of flavoured sugar that won’t affect your blood sugar at all, look no further. We have a truly fabulous hamper of goodies for you to win, I’m so excited!

Warm up this winter with NOMU and SWEETLY!

NOMU and SWEETLY are offering all Diabetic South Africans a chance to win an amazing hamper to help you keep warm during winter.

NOMU is widely know for their diabetic-friendly SKINNY Hot Chocolate. The SKINNY Hot Chocolate is the leading diabetic-friendly hot chocolate in South Africa, and once you taste it you will understand why… This Hot Chocolate is Low GI and you only need one heaped teaspoon per serving, meaning one tin goes a long way.

NOMU’s other love is baking at the highest standard, so to help you bake delicious goodies during winter, the hamper will also include NOMU Cocoa Powder and Vanilla Products. But what is even more exciting, to help you bake perfect sugarless treats, SWEETLY (NOMU’s sister company), has created the SWEETLY Baking Sugar Substitute, a diabetic-friendly, all natural sugar substitute that bakes just like sugar!

The latest addition to the SWEETLY range is the SWEETLY Cinnamon and Vanilla Sugar Substitute Shakers, which allow you to shake delicious sugarless flavour over all your baked goods.

Head over to to find a range of delicious sugarless recipes and be sure to follow NOMU and SWEETLY on Instagram.
