It’s the New Year and everyone says they want to eat better and this is the year to a healthier you. I am no exception to that. I actually started my journey to better health this past fall. I’ve made some moderations to what I eat. I no longer consume white sugar, only natural sugars. I also eat low carb, high protein, and low fat. It’s not easy but I am getting used to it.
The problem is, I have a sweet tooth! Sugar is my weakness. I had to learn how to curve my sweet tooth with something other than sugar but it’s important to me that it be something natural. I started altering my recipes using Truvia instead of sugar. Truvia is America’s favorite natural, calorie-free stevia sweetener. Unlike other stevia products on the market, Truvia is great-tasting every time. Honestly, I can’t even tell the difference when I use Truvia.
The benefits of using Truvia:
- Naturally sweet from the stevia leaf.
- No sugar. No calories. No doubts.
Truvia comes in spoonable form and packets for everyday use. I keep spoonable at home and use the packets on the go. I also bake with Truvia baking blends as well, white and brown sugar. No one even knows when I substitute in my baking, it’s that good! As you can see I am a big fan of Truvia and I encourage you to give it a try, for a healthier version of sweetness.
Today I want to share something I make all the time for me and my girls. We love smoothies and we turn to them a lot for our sweet fixes. Our favorite way to make a smoothie is with Greek yogurt that is high in protein, fresh or frozen fruit and we always add Truvia for a little more sweetness, especially when using tart fruits.
Strawberry Banana Smoothie with Truvia
A container of Strawberry Greek Yogurt
Half of large Banana or 1 Small Banana
About 4 ounces of Ice
Truvia – 1 to 2 packets depending on how sweet you want it
Blend it until smooth and it’s ready to drink. I didn’t add any water because it was thin enough to drink. Depending on the yogurt and how much ice you use, you may need to add a little bit of water to thin it out.
We swap out the fruit and yogurt flavor according to what we have on hand, but this is our favorite combination. What I love about this smoothie is by using the greek yogurt, it’s full of protein, and by using Truvia, it’s guilt-free sweetness!
