NuNaturals Review + Giveaway

I got a lot of stuff in the mail from NuNaturals to try and out. It's all so good.
  
I was very excited about their new industry first Cocoa Syrup, Simple Syrup, and Cocoa Mint Syrup. They are:
  • Stevia Based
  • "0" Calorie
  • Sugar-Free
  • Dairy-Free
  • Gluten Free
  • Vegan
  
The morning after I got these products I made a Cherry Smoothie.

This is for a family of 4. The adults get medium sized glasses, and the kids get tiny glasses.
  • 1 cup of spinach leaves
  • 1 bag of frozen dark cherries
  • 1 banana
  • 1 cup of unsweetened almond milk (the amount can very depending on how thick or thin you like your smoothies)
  • 1 cup of water
  • 4 teaspoons of NuStevia Cocoa Syrup
I paired this up Cherry Smoothie up with our breakfast:

1 Buckwheat Waffle (Not Dad's favorite, but I enjoyed it.), Steamed Collard Greens, 1/2 a banana, a small amount of blue berries, a small amount of dark chocolate covered almonds, and coffee for the adults.


 The smoothie was so good!


The next day I made Cocoa Mint Smoothies.

This is for a family of 4. The adults get medium sized glasses, and the kids get tiny glasses.
  • 1 cup of spinach leaves
  • 4 frozen bananas - basically fill up most of the blender with frozen bananas
  • 1 cup of unsweetened almond milk (the amount can very depending on how thick or thin you like your smoothies)
  • 1 cup water
  • 4 teaspoons of NuStevia Cocoa Mint Syrup
The boys went and bragged about their mint drinks to Grandma and Grandpa.


I also got a lot of flavored Pure Liquid NuNaturals NuStevia. I use either the orange flavor or the lemon flavor to make lemonade, or limeade.


The next day I made Sparkling Limeade.

This for a full sized pitcher.
  • Squeeze 1 lime
  • Add 2 cans of lime sparkle water
  • Fill up 2 droppers full of NuNaturals Pure Liquid Lemon NuStevia
  • Fill the rest of the pitcher up with water and ice
This is so good on a hot day.


Other flavors of  Pure Liquid NuNaturals NuStevia are: Vanilla, Cherry, Unflavored, and Peppermint.


I also made up a recipe for Sugarless Cookies. I was so nervous that I'd majorly mess this up, but I didn't. I looked at other recipes online, and based mine off of some I saw. I have to admit sometimes I don't know what this or that is when I look at gluten free recipes, nor do I have everything mentioned.

I used the following NuNaturals products in this recipe:


Recipe for Dark Chocolate Chip Cookies:
  • 2 cups gluten free all purpose flour blend. I get mine at Costco.
  • 1/2 cup coconut flour
  • 1 Tablespoon of NuNaturals Oat Fiber
  • 1 teaspoon freshly ground Chia Seed
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 3 Tablespoons NuNaturals NuStevia No Carbs Blend
  • 1 Tablespoon protein powder or powder peanut butter 
  • 1/2 cup chopped walnuts or pecans 
  • 1/2 cup rolled oats
  • 1/4 cup melted butter
  • 1/4 cup melted coconut oil
  • 2 Tablespoons almond butter, or peanut butter
  • 1 Tablespoon vanilla extract
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1/4 local honey
  • 1/2 a ripe banana
  • 1/2 cup dark chocolate chips 
I'm not entirely gluten free. I just try and watch it. I know oatmeal, and chocolate chips you have to buy special if you have Celiac Disease.

Preheat your oven to 350 degrees. I used my 1 inch scoop, flatten them with a wet spatula. They do not spread. You can place them really close together on the cookie sheet. Cook two sheets at a time for 7 minutes, and switch the sheets to cook for another 7 minutes. Total baking time = 14 minutes.




The boys absolutely loved them. My main critic (Travis AKA Dad) came back for a second one.


I also got 100 packets of White Stevia Powder.


Overall I love the NuNaturals products. They ship fast and taste really good! The owner always gives a lot, which is so nice!
