Truvia Review and Giveaway

I like my tea and coffee sweet but feel guilty by added the extra calories. Want to know my solution? Its Truvia, a great tasting natural sweetener with zero calories made from rebiana, the best tasting part of the stevia plant. I still get a great sweetness but without the strange aftertaste and honestly it makes my beverages taste better. One little packet of Truvia gives me the sweetness of 2 teaspoons of regular sugar and is suitable for those with diabetes.

Truvia can be found at your local grocery stores, just look for the pretty green and white box with the luscious strawberry on it, it’s what caught my eye. Truvia can be used for everything from your coffee to baked goods to breakfast smoothies. We tried the Banana Berry Smoothie and it was delicious and sweet but not artificial tasting.
Truvia is a PlayDate Pick !!!
A lucky PlayDate Picks reader is going to win a box of Truvia, as well as a garden tote and garden gloves.
