ENDED: Review AND Giveaway - NuStevia from NuNaturals.com!

NEW WINNER!!! Mary Beth E...congrats and check your email box!!

Thank you everyone who entered and shared our giveaway here! Rafflecopter chose our winners who I have already contacted - they have 48 hours to respond or new winners will be chosen. The winners are posted on the widget at end of this post.
Again...THANK YOU!!!


Thanks to Ron Redding, (The "SUGAR-FREE POPPA") of NuNaturals.com, I am honored to not only review their newest products (flavored Stevia and PreSweet Tagatose), but I have the opportunity to offer a giveaway which has FOUR winners! 

You heard right, FOUR of you will win this package:

( 1 ) one bottle of each of the Lemon / Orange / Peppermint Flavored Stevia Liquids, PLUS the NEW CHOCOLATE Stevia Liquid (see the below image). (FYI: serving size is apprx 7 drops, servings per container: 169) These are great NEW ALL-NATURAL Gluten-Free products!




ALL of which I can tell you, are AMAZING! 

The aroma alone when you open the bottles are enough to say MMMMMMM...... :) especially the chocolate, I've never tried chocolate flavorings of any kind before and this, by far, has to be my favorite. On each of the product pages, you will see they match the vanilla with these flavors as a suggestion and claim they work, soooooo.....go for adventure and try the combinations!

One thing I truly love about all of the NuNaturals products that I have tried (see my last review for them HERE) is this:

          "NuNaturals uses a highly concentrated Stevia extract and should not be confused with less potent powdered herbs or extracts. NuNaturals uses plant-based natural flavors that help to make our Stevia products the best tasting ones available. NuStevia is a natural plant extract. The vanilla used in this product is produced from high quality vanilla beans made by Singing Dog Vanilla. This creates a superior tasting vanilla product." - re: iherb.com.... I completely agree.

NuNaturals isn't like other companies who just label a product as chocolate or peppermint, etc. and expect the consumer to be happy with the result (quite often, the product tastes NOTHING like what is promoted!) NuNaturals go above and beyond to find the right mix of all natural bases to come up with the very closest flavor as possible.

As their claim says on the site: 
          Contains no MSG, soy, milk, synthetics, artificial colors or flavors, preservatives, saccharine, aspartame, sucralose, artificial sweeteners
you will see for yourself that they keep their products as true to form as possible.

Try chocolate and peppermint in the winter time or even chocolate and orange (doesn't that combination just make you think of those chocolate balls at Christmas shaped like an orange? yummy!)

I absolutely love the Tagatose in place of our Splenda at home. Due to Honey Bears' diabetes and my own inability to process sugars as I should, this is a very 'sweet' (just caught that, LOL) replacement - you do not need to add as much as you're used to, making the product last longer as well.

Not only did Ron, 'The Sugar-Free Poppa' (love that name LOL), send me products to review for you and offer them to you through a giveaway, he also included recipes using the products - a HUGE bonus to me, because not using a product before, you are never positive on the outcome. My first try was this recipe because the ingredients are easy to find in all major supermarkets and the end result is DE-LICIOUS!!!


          Mini Microwave Peanut-Pumpkin Protein Cake

We think you will enjoy trying Amber’s “ 5-minute single serving treat ” and you can find many more delicious recipes by visiting her site of : www.almostveganchef.com)

Ingredients :

* 6 tablespoons peanut flour
* 6 tablespoons soymilk or almond milk ( or other nondairy milk )
* 2 tablespoons canned pumpkin ( or unsweetened applesauce )
* 1 teaspoon nutritional yeast ( optional )
* 5-10 drops of NuNaturals Vanilla Liquid Stevia ( or 2-3 tsp sweetener of choice )
* 1/8 teaspoon baking powder
* pinch of salt
* 1 teaspoon maple syrup, agave nectar, or honey

Preparation : ( yields 1 mini cake )

* Place all ingredients except that one teaspoon of maple/honey/agave in a greased 6-8 oz. bowl or large mug.
* Stir thoroughly to combine.
* Microwave on High approx. 5 minutes. ( If you prefer not using microwave, place in toaster oven at 350 degrees for 15-20 minutes )
* Let sit in microwave for a minute before removing & use oven mitt to take out, it will be HOT !
* It may be a little crusty around the rim, but it’s still quite TASTY ! , and a bit gooey in the center.
* Let the cake cool off for another minute or two, then top it with the teaspoon of maple syrup/agave or honey.

The recipe is easy, the ease of using a microwave instead of the oven and the end result is healthy AND delicious! If you'd like more recipes, just drop me a line and I will forward the rest on to you.

Now, to talk about NuNaturals - it's a fantastic company who stands behind it's products and the people, especially Ron Redding, are great to work with. If you are tired of trial and error or simply don't know where to start in making healthier choices, this is the company who can help you.
