Winter's Got Me Down - NuNaturals NuStevia Review and Giveaway
I don't know about you, but for me...I'm not so fond of the winter season we're having. Just yesterday, more snow...bummer. What better way to beat the winter glums then to host a review and giveaway!
So, with that said, I think we can ALL use a pick-me-up and thanks to Mr Ron Redding (The Sugar Free Poppa) at NuNaturals, once again we are pleased to announce a review AND giveaway with FOUR LUCKY WINNERS of their AWESOME products!!!
I have had the honor of reviewing NuNaturals NuStevia™ products in the past and I have never been disappointed - sweet without a drop of sugar, natural without a drop of mechanically engineered products and delicious with their large assortment of flavors. As you can see by the package we received, they have MANY items on their site and these are but a few:
Due to diabetes and high blood pressure in our home, we watch product labels a lot. You'll find that you can have these ailments AND enjoy the sweetness of sugar without the sugar or imitation flavorings through NuNaturals NuStevia™ products!
Just a couple of examples of how I use NuNaturals NuStevia™are: adding 1/3 dropper of Orange NuStevia™ to a cup of tea brings it to a whole new level or drizzling the Cocoa Syrup over a bowl of ice cream - a little syrup will go a LONG way in sweetness AND flavor! My personal favorite is vanilla ice cream (hey, I'm cutting back on the sugar in the topping LOL) and drizzle the Cocoa Mint Syrup over the top - tastes the same as a name brand mint chip ice cream!
We use the NuNaturals NuStevia™ packets in lieu of other sugar substitutes in our coffee but we use LESS packs to reach that same fulfilling flavor which is VERY cost beneficial. Everyone has a different opinion of the ratio sugar to stevia has, but for me personally, I use LESS stevia to accomplish the same level of sweetness. You will have to find your own sweet spot and trust me, once you do, you are hooked!
Also, the dropper bottles are easy to transport anywhere so you will find a Vanilla NuStevia™ dropper bottle in the glove box when we want a 'gourmet flavored' cup of coffee on the road without the cost OR sugar.
I juice around here for the detoxing benefit it brings, but I don't let those scraps go to waste -- nay nay! I make a quick bread out of them, even muffins. What I do is, I take a cup of scraps (freeze the rest), and add it to my favorite banana bread recipe, using only 1 banana and before adding the egg, I start putting in the NuStevia™ . I change it up though, I sometimes will use the loose NuStevia™ and sometimes the drops, depending on what sounds good and I taste test it until I reach the desired sweetness. Then I finish the batter as it states. Mind you now, that if you do NOT add ANY sugar, you will NOT get a browned finish because it's the sugar that does that. The texture and taste will remain the same.
Here's another idea for you: Do you like soda water? I love it! If you buy any cherry, lime or lemon flavored or even plain flavored, take the Cherry NuStevia™ and drop by drop, add it to your soda - it's like drinking a regular soda with a cherry kick!
And in homemade sugar cookies - the Cherry Vanilla adds a real treat flavor while you cut back on the sugar! You WILL need SOME sugar to brown the cookies, but MUCH LESS and that's AWESOME goodness in your oven!
Have you tried any stevia products in the past? I have found an after taste in the ones I've tried. I do NOT, however, find an after taste using NuNaturals NuStevia™ . That's why I am a firm supporter of their products and Mr Redding, The Sugar Free Poppa, is a real great guy. If you have ANY questions or comments, he is easy to talk to.
