Holiday Baking with Truvia®!

This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of Truvia® Natural Sweetener for SocialSpark. All opinions are 100% mine.

I am super excited (and blown away) that Thanksgiving is this week!  The rate at which time is passing me by is alarming, however, this time of year makes me so happy! I lovelovelove the holidays!  Being as I am sorta a food freak ('foodie' sounds better I suppose), I am gearing up for all the things I want to bake.  Yep, this time of year allows me to get my bake on with wild abandon.  With my husband being diabetic, and for my family in general, I like to find lower sugar options, without sacrificing taste or texture of the recipes.  That's where Truvia® comes in.  Truvia® Baking Blend is a blend of Truvia® natural sweetener and sugar, that provides sugar-like taste and texture in recipes, but with 75% fewer calories and twice the amount of sweetness than sugar.  That means that one 1.5 pound bag of Truvia® Baking Blend has the equivalent sweetness to 3 pounds of sugar! 

So, in honor of the upcoming holidays, I am going to share a time honored tradition in these parts....Pumpkin Pie!  But not just any pumpkin pie, one that you will be proud to serve along side your turkey and cranberry sauce, but with 2/3 less sugar than the sugar sweetened version!  Just look at this deliciousness -

Do you have a favorite Holiday recipe where Truvia® Baking Blend could be used in the place of sugar? I would love for you to leave a link or recipe in the comment section! I am always on the lookout for new recipes!  I could even choose one and feature it here on the blog if anyone is interested.

Happy Baking!
