Truvía® natural sweetener Product Review

Another of my favorite products from my Love VoxBox was several packets of Truvia. Here are a few facts about Truvia from the website:

  • Truvia® natural sweetener is refreshingly uncomplicated. Sprinkle it on your grapefruit. Spoon it in your coffee. It won't end up on your conscience or your thighs.
  • One packet of Truvia® natural sweetener provides the same sweetness as two teaspoons of sugar.
  • Truvia® natural sweetener is a great alternative for people with diabetes. It is also kosher certified.

I have used my Truvia in the two ways mentioned above - on my grapefruit and in my coffee. I've been on a grapefruit kick lately, so I've been eating several a week. While I love grapefruit, I need it to be a little sweeter. Truvia was great for this! My grapefruit was a bit sweetener, and I didn't have to worry about all the extra calories of sugar. It also tastes great in coffee. Again, I love coffee, but I need it sweeter than it naturally is. Truvia is perfect for coffee.

I like that the Truvia packets are pretty full. Have you ever used other sweetener packets and maybe 1/3 of the packet is actually the sweetener? Truvia is not like that. I felt like it would be a bit more worth my money than other packets.

You can find Truvia at grocery stores. While I haven't purchased any yet (hey, I'm a mom - we've got to be budget conscious and use up what we have first!), I will definitely purchase Truvia when I need sweetener. It probably won't be too long. If you like to add sweetness to your foods and beverages, give Truvia a try!

Oh - there is also a baking blend. So, if you like to bake, but you're watching your calories, give the Truvia Baking Blend a chance!
