Delicious Recipes Made with Truvia, a Natural and No-Calorie Sweetener!

Truvia is a natural, no-calorie sweetener made with rebiana, which is the best-tasting part of the stevia leaf. You can use it just like you would regular sugar to sweeten your coffee or tea, grapefruit or cereal! What’s really cool is that you can also substitute it for sugar in recipes! One packet of Truvia natural sweetener provides the same sweetness as two teaspoons of sugar. (You can find a “sweetness conversion chart” at www.truvia.com.)

I received some Truvia samples and recipes for delicious cocktails that can be made with Truvia! Here’s the one that I made recently. It was so tasty!

Strawberry Rouge

Yield: Makes 2 servings
Active Time: 10 minutes
Total Time: 10 minutes

Ingredients

½ cup cachaca or good quality run (for a non-alcoholic version, substitute 2/3 cup club soda)
1 tsp aged balsamic vinegar
6 medium-sized strawberries, rinsed and quartered
1- medium-sized basil leaves, roughly chopped
2/3 cup pineapple juice, with no added sugar
2 Tbsp lime juice, approximately 2 limes
2 packets Truvia natural sweetener
½ cup crushed ice

Preparation

In a tumbler, combine the basil, strawberries and lime juice. Muddle the mixture by pounding to break up the berries and release the basil flavor.

Add the cachaca or run, balsamic vinegar, pineapple juice, Truvia natural sweetener, and ice into the tumbler. Shake for several minutes, until the drink is chilled and well-blended.

Strain only half of the mixture, so that you still get a few pieces of basil and strawberry in each glass. Serve the drink in a well-chilled martini glass.

On the Truvia website, you can also find recipes for desserts, quick breads, main dishes, salads and dressings, smoothies, coffees and teas, jams and jellies, and much more!

Truvia can be found in supermarkets like Kroger, Publix, SuperValu, Food Lion, Stop & Shop, Giant and Martin’s, as well as Whole Foods, Wal-Mart and Target. It’s available in boxes of 40-count, 80-count, and 140-count or a spoonable container. If you’re looking for a very versatile and natural sugar substitute, I suggest you check out Truvia!
