Last fall when I had gestational diabetes, I spent a lot of time cruising Pinterest pinning recipes that I had no hope of eating. Then, I came across a recipe for Thin Mints on Mo Betta using Stevia, a natural plant based sweetener. Even better, this recipe came with a giveaway for NuNaturals Stevia. I had recently been looking into trying Stevia and the brand that Adrienne from the site Whole New Mom recommended was none other than Nu Naturals.
This seemed meant to be so I entered and, amazingly, I won!
In addition to the powdered stevia packets, I also won a bottle of vanilla stevia drops. I brought it to my Mom's house at Christmas and had to end up leaving it with her because she got hooked on putting it in her coffee and her oatmeal. (I've never tried Truvia but my mom used to use their packets- she gives them to the barristas at Starbucks and they add it to her drinks for her- she now uses the NuNaturals and said to tell you all :) that they are much better than Truvia.)
A few weeks ago, I was contacted by someone from Nu Naturals who asked if I was interested in trying two of their new products: orange stevia drops and lemon stevia drops.
EVEN BETTER, he offered to send a set of orange stevia drops and lemon stevia drops to FOUR of my readers! If you've ever wanted to try stevia, this is a great opportunity to try it for FREE.
If your kids are hooked on sweet drinks, putting a few drops of lemon or orange stevia would be great in water or sparkling water. In fact, my daughter currently has to take medication. In order to avoid the red dye in most antibiotics, we have been crushing up pills and putting the powder into applesauce, smoothies, etc. Each time we do, she says that the medicine taste is still really strong. When we got the stevia, I put a few drops of the orange with the crushed medicine and some milk, and for the first time, she said that she couldn't taste the medicine at all!
We also made orange "dreamsicle" smoothies with frozen bananas, milk and orange stevia (plus a little Greek yogurt for added protein).
This giveaway is now over. Congratulations to the winners, Keitha, Tiffany, Jenetta, and Cathy!
FOUR winners will each win one bottle each of lemon stevia and orange stevia.
