I partnered with Born Sweet™ Zing™ Zero Calorie Stevia Sweetener to bring to you some of my favorite stevia recipes and an awesome giveaway that Zing™ is sponsoring for YOU! I have been using stevia for many years to sweeten our drinks and snacks and I especially like Zing™ because it’s made with only real ingredients — nothing artificial, and has a perfect sweet taste. Stevia sweetener is derived from extract of the stevia plant, so it naturally sweetens drinks and food without adding calories or artificial ingredients. Below are some of my favorite ways to sweeten my day with Zing™.
Our mornings are made up of coffee, smoothies, and coffee. Did I just say that twice? Yeah, we like our cup ‘o joe. My favorite coffee drink to make with stevia is a Skinny Vanilla Latte. You can customize the ingredients to your taste but what makes it “skinny” is the skim milk and the no calorie stevia. I added an image with the recipe I use so that you can pin it for later. You know I drank that cup of goodness right after I shot this picture… yum!
Well, coffee is in first place but in at a close second are smoothies. I try to teach my kids to eat their veggies but truth is, I am still trying to learn myself. I sneak in some healthy kale into this strawberry smoothie and the kids (and me) love it! Of course, I add a few packets of stevia sweetener to cover-up any bitterness from the kale and we are left with sweet yumminess. Tip: When I buy strawberries in bulk, I freeze half of them for smoothies and I leave the rest in the fridge for snacking.
This one is for you so I dressed it up with a strawberry. Don’t say I never gave you anything.
This simple snack is my kid’s favorite! I simply mix some 2% Greek yogurt with 2 packets of Zing™ Zero Calorie Stevia Sweetener and I cut up some strawberries.
I then dip them into the yogurt/stevia mix and I place them on a tray lined with parchment.
Then they go into the freezer for a few hours. I don’t make too many at once because I will usually make it for an after-school snack and they all get gobbled up.
And they come out looking like this. Kids will want to eat them asap.
No, really. I was barely able to take the finished-product pictures before my little taste-tester attacked the plate!
