I’ve been using Stevia products for almost 5 years. It still pains me that many coffee shops still to this day do not carry it. Local shops sometimes do, as does Whole Foods but for the most part I always carry my own packets in my purse for my hot beverages or oatmeal when I eat breakfasts on the go. Last month, I was invited to join the Truvia® Kitchen Cabinet!
If you are unfamiliar with it, Truvia® is a natural, zero-calorie sweetener. Thanks to it’s great taste, it also is the #1 selling zero-calorie natural sweetener in the U.S.
It’s natural sweetness is born from the sweet leaves of the stevia plant. One packet is equivalent to two teaspoons of sugar. I love using it to sweeten my coffee, oatmeal, Greek Yogurt and even skinny cocktails like a mojito.
They even have a baking blend that comes in handy during the holiday season. For example if a recipe like Blonde Brownies calls for 2 cups of brown sugar, capture the rich flavor by adding a tablespoon of molasses to 1 cup of Truvia Baking Blend for 75% less calories.
In addition to being a fan of the products themselves, the Truvia brand is a proud partner with the UN World Food Programme to provide school meals to Bolivian children and help them reach their potential.
The Truvia team has created a series of 5 video stories that spotlight these hardships of Bolivian families and children, and has shared them on YouTube.com/truvianewsroom.
Share these videos on Facebook or Twitter using #SweetFuture to raise awareness for childhood hunger in Bolivia.
I’m excited to share a new recipe or meal idea using Truvia each month over the next year!
