My family began using the low-glycemic, low-carb eating plan by Trim Healthy Mama in January 2013. We have been so thrilled with the improvements in our health over the last 14 months!
What we haven't enjoyed, since April 2013, was that the recommended alternative sweetener, pure stevia extract, made by NuNaturals, changed its formulation - and it no longer tasted good to us.
In fact, we would rather have gone without any sweet treats than to use NuNaturals' updated version of pure stevia extract. If you've been following any of my sweet recipes here at Joy In Our Journey.com, you know that this would be a huge sacrifice for me!
Since that time, I've been able to "beta test" two versions of pure stevia extract for Pearl and Serene, the authors of Trim Healthy Mama. And guess what?
We've loved the new stevia extract that they've decided to start selling! Truly, it is amazing.
I thought you would want to know that the Trim Healthy Mama website will now be officially selling:
The sales of these new products will begin on Monday morning, March 24th, 2014...so now's your chance to place your order for some amazing stevia products on www.TrimHealthyMama.com!
More details about the THM stevia products:
Pearl and Serene have sampled pure stevia extract from all over Asia, where it is manufactured. They want to sell pure stevia extract, with no fillers or maltodextrin. They have sought a product that is organic, of the highest purity, and has a nice rounded sweetness without that bitter high end taste most stevia is known for.
One of their husbands flew to the area where this stevia is grown, and he documented the entire process from leaf to powder. Absolutely no bleaching is involved nor are any strange or unhealthy chemicals used. The leaves are soaked in water, and the end result is a fine, white, ultra-sweet powder perfect for all-day sippers, shakes, smoothies, and Greek yogurt, etc.
In fact, the new THM stevia is so minimally processed, it has not even been granulated, which means it remains a fine white powder – like dust.
When you receive your pouch, tap it on your counter a few times and then zip the seal before opening the bag, as the powder likes to plume a little when first opened.
Trust me - it "poofs" a bit, so don't take a deep breath when opening up the package. ☺
You’ll find a tiny spoon (1/32 of a tsp.) inside the pouch. When adding the powder to your drink or recipe with your tiny spoon, turn spoon downward and gently tap it on the side of your glass or bowl as you empty it out. This will allow the stevia to flow out of the spoon. Don’t put the spoon back in the pouch as you’ll have to dig around in the white powder to find it. Find your spoon its own special home somewhere else in your kitchen.
Along with the pure stevia extract, Trim Healthy Mama is also excited to launch THM Sweet Blend which is a completely non-GMO baking blend – a mixture of their organic stevia and non-GMO erythritol – no other sneaky ingredients added. It is sweeter than sugar, and even sweeter than most other store-bought stevia blends like Truvia.
Pearl and Serene know that mamas are on tight budgets, so they did their very best to make it affordable for the everyday mama to buy a full pound at a time...although smaller quantities are also available.
If you are used to using 4 tsp. of another blend like Truvia in your Muffin in a Mug recipes, try just 3 tsp. of their Sweet Blend and see if that is just about right.
I'm going to hold a giveaway for the THM stevia products here, soon, so stay tuned for more about that in the next few weeks. I can't wait to place my order on Monday, for the new THM sweeteners! Place your orders here (not an affiliate link).
