A while ago I was first introduced to Pure Via Stevia, and ever since it is a product which finds its way into my grocery basket quite often. Now, I am excited to share that Pure Via has introduced Stevia Liquid Sweetener.
Naturally Sourced Sweetener from the Stevia Plant
Pure Via™ Stevia Liquid is sweetened with a naturally-sourced sweetener made from the pure extract of the stevia plant. It has a clean, sweet taste, contains zero calories, and dissolves quickly in both hot and cold beverages, allowing you to personalize any drink to your sweetness preference without any added guilt.
Great for on-the-go, these handy bottles can easily fit in your purse, backpack, pocket or gym bag and the no-drip lid means no messes!
For the last week, I've tried out Pure Via Liquid Stevia and replaced it for my regular sweetener in my hot drinks. I love it! I really like that it is so portable and I can easily sweetener my coffee shop coffee myself without any hassle or mess, while saving myself the calories. One squeeze of Pure Via Liquid Stevia is equal to 1 tsp. of sugar. This little bottle of sweetener does not require refrigeration after opening, making it so convenient to use at home or away. The 48mL bottle is the equivalent to 48 servings.
