In brief: Stevia!
Stevia is a powerful sweetener made from the chrysanthemum. It has 0 calories, very little flavor other than sweetness, and is generally recognized as safe.
My wife uses it in all sorts of baked goods, we sweeten drinks with it! and we find that it's delicious on plain yogurt. Fruit is a great alternative dessert to anything containing refined sugar too.
