NuNaturals Giveaway!

It's a sweet world out there, but navigating through the jungle of sweeteners to add to your coffee, baked goods or drinks can feel like wading through a swamp. Sugar? This is Don't (White) Sugar Coat it. High Fructose Corn Syrup? No thanks. Still a Splenda Addict? You might want to rethink that (in fact Janel Ovrut, RD wrote a fantastic post all about the horrors of Splenda) Aspartame? I'd rather not.When it's my turn to choose, I normally pick honey (sweetener of the gods and 100% natural/unrefined), maple syrup (new england pride) or Stevia, a non-nutritional sweetener that is made from a plant native to South America. And the only stevia brand I will consume is NuNaturals-all the others have this gross bitter-aftertaste. How Ron's team eliminates this and creates such a pure product is beyond me, but I am always grateful. 

I drink the vanilla stevia-which uses natural pure vanilla extract in my coffee daily. And there are 2 NEW flavors-with no artificial flavors of course- orange and lemon! As the heat starts to settle in, these two flavors are great to work into summertime drinks.
Maybe some lemonade on this Memorial Day?

Matcha Lemonade for 2
2 lemons
15 drops lemon stevia
1 Teaspoon Matcha Powder
Cold Water
Stir to combine!

And because I feel like sharing. 4 of you can win one bottle of each of the Lemon & Orange Flavored Stevia Liquids!! Entering is easy- just leave a comment below on your favorite summertime drink that you could use Lemon or Orange Stevia in.

If you would like to gain additional entries, you can do the following:
  • "Like" NuNaturals on Facebook and leave comment below that you did so
  • Tweet: "Enter to win @ElizabethEats @nunaturals Stevia #Giveaway"

I will pick a winner on June 4th at 10am EST so go enter! 
Here's to a lovely week!

Full Disclosure: Yes I did receive free product to test before the giveaway. Do you think I'd offer you something with out at least trying it?? I was in no way paid or coerced to write a positive review. I really do love this stuff. Have questions? Ask away!

what if you can only locate regular stevia, any modifications required?
