I was given complimentary products from Steviva to use for their Steviva Blogger Recipe Challenge contest. Besides receiving free products for the purpose of creating a recipe, I was not compensated for this post. These are my honest thoughts about Steviva sweeteners.
The leaves are changing colors in Michigan, but the temps are still unusually warm for early October! When I heard about the Steviva Sweeten it Up Blogger Recipe Challenge, I was all in! While some spent the weekend raking leaves, I was at my local produce stand buying fruit for this refreshing Four Fruit Smoothie. This drink is sweet-but not sugary sweet-thanks to Steviva Brand's natural sweeteners. For this recipe, I used Nectevia (made with blue agave nectar) and Monk Sweet (made with monk fruit extract) to naturally sweeten up my Strawberry, blueberry, raspberry, and banana Four Fruit Smoothie.
In case you are not familiar with Steviva Brands, they offer a full line of natural sweeteners available in various flavors. Check out their social media sites for product info and more inspiring recipes:
