Truvia Review and Giveaway...




ABCD Diaries was given the opportunity to review Truvia. Here is some info about Truvia from their website:


"Stevia: the plant with a sweet secret
Sweetness born from a leaf, not in a lab. Meet the stevia plant. The proud parent of our natural sweetener. People have been sweetening foods and beverages with stevia leaves for hundreds of years. The taste comes from a natural ingredient from the leaves called rebiana.
Rebiana is what gives Truvia™ natural sweetener its clean, honest sweet taste. Simple. Who knew going green could be so good?

3 Interesting tidbits about Truvia:

1.Truvia™ natural sweetener is refreshingly uncomplicated. Sprinkle it on your grapefruit. Spoon it in your coffee. It won't end up on your conscience or your thighs.

2.One packet of Truvia™ natural sweetener provides the same sweetness as two teaspoons of sugar.

3.Truvia™ natural sweetener is a great alternative for people with diabetes. It is also kosher certified"



What we thought:
We have tried quite a few sugar substitutes and I must say, Truvia is the closest we've come to an artificial sweetener tasting like sugar. You can still tell it isn't the real deal, but the taste isn't nearly as obvious as many others. It dissolves easily in cold or hot liquids and works really well in baked goods to. They also have an extensive recipe collection on their site and I've picked a few to share with ya'll. This apple crisp sounds divine, especially for the cooler autumn months.
Is your mouth watering yet? We love smoothies, so we will definitely be trying the banana berry smoothie. I was also surprised to find recipes for alcoholic drink mixes...I never would have thought of that! B is a fan of the Tom Collins, so I'm going to have him try the Steve Collins next:) As we slowly wean ourselves from sugar, Truvia will be our go-to substitute:)

ABCD Diaries gives Truvia a B+ for anyone in your family looking for an alternative to sugar.
