For awhile, I have been trying to find a alternative sweeener to sugar and also one that was not chemically made. Being a southern girl, I was raised on “a little bit of tea in your sugar” kind of sweet. So needless to say, I am picky about what I use to sweeten up my food. When my “Love Voxbox” arrived and I saw the Truvia® I was excited to finally try it.
First thing I noticed was the taste. It was sweet enough that I only needed 2 packets for my coffee (I normally use 4 of other kinds). Second, I love that it did not have a chemical aftertaste. My husband is not a fan of artificial sweeteners. I let him use some of the Truvia® in his tea and he really enjoyed the taste. Third, it is easy to find in the stores and they have different packaging to meet your needs. Whether you need single packets for coffee or a baking blend they have you covered.
My favorite thing about it? It is all natural! In my effort to switch over to “clean” eating (eating all organic/natural food, with packaged foods only having 4/5 ingredients or less), non-fattening sweetener was an issue for me. I wanted something that tasted good, wasn’t chemically made, and not super expensive. Made from the Stevia plant, it sweetens your food without padding your back end!
From Truvia® website :
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.
One packet of Truvia® natural sweetener provides the same sweetness as two teaspoons of sugar.
Truvia® natural sweetener is a great alternative for people with diabetes. It is also kosher certified.
They also have a full list of products that sweeten using Truvia®. See it here.
If you are looking for an alternative to the pink, blue, and yellow, try Truvia® you will not be disappointed!
