Truvia Natural Calorie-Free Sweetener Review and Giveaway

6:40 AM


***GIVEAWAY CLOSED***
When I get around to drinking tea, I prefer a bit of sweetness. I also enjoy a little milk in it too. The milk addition came about when I was on a missions trip to Spain and we were enjoying dinner at a host's home. She served Earl Grey tea to us and it was sooo good with the sugar and milk in it, I continued that when I came back home. Ever since then, I was hooked! I don't usually use plain sugar though as I find that I need alot to get the sweetness to my liking. I know I know...it's probably better for me. But, I have a great sweetener alternative to introduce to you all today and you are sure to love it!Truvia is a natural calorie-free sweetener that originates from rebiana, the best tasting part of the stevia leaf. This sweetener begins with a plant...which really means alot to me. Remember the huge Aspartame scare not too long ago? Well, when your sweetener comes from a plant, you don't have to worry about that nasty chemical.

Here is a bit more about Truvia...

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?

I love how this sweetener originates from a plant...that's so great!! For this review, I was sent the spoonable Truvia as well as a 40 packet box of Truvia. I was anxious to try Truvia because I am a Splenda user and wanted to see the difference. The first thing I noticed was the difference in size of the granules. Truvia granuals are actually larger whereas Splenda is more of a powder. Also, I did notice that Truvia is a bit sweeter than Splenda. I am not yet sure which product I like better though...it will take a bit more sampling. :) Being that it is chilly (ha ha...more like freezing!) out tonight, I decided to have a nice cup of tea. So, I prepared my tea and instead of using my usual sweetener, I tried out the Truvia. It really tasted good in my tea and took very little to get the sweetness to my liking...which was nice.
On Truvia's website, they have a whole page of recipes that you can use this sweetener in and I am very excited to try some of those recipes out! When it comes to purchasing Truvia, you can search on their website as well for the nearest location that carries it. I like that feature!So, in my opinion...Truvia is a very nice product! I love the convenience of the spoonable container so you can get the right amount. The packets are great as well for travel and needing a sweetener for on the go. I am impressed with the taste and quality of Truvia and am looking forward to trying some baking with it.
Besides purchasing Truvia, you can win it here!!! By entering this giveaway, you can be entered to win exactly what I reviewed...a 40 pack box of Truvia as well as a spoonable container of Truvia! YAY!
