So many people resolve to eat better and live healthier and one way to do that is to lower the amount of sweets you intake. That’s actually the hardest thing for me to do, I have a KILLER sweet tooth, so I just have to learn how to make my sugar healthy and take it in moderation. Substituting Truvia in the place of sugar in recipes is a great place to start. Truvia baking blend is designed for easy, at-home baking, and is a blend of Truvia® natural sweetener and sugar. Truvia® Baking Blend provides sugar-like taste and texture in recipes, but with 75% fewer calories and twice the amount of sweetness than sugar. Truvia® Baking Blend is available at retail stores nationwide in a 1.5 pound bag with a closeable, easy-to-use pour spout. I love how easy it is to store and pour. We’ve been experimenting in our kitchen and here is a recipe my kids enjoy.
Chocolate Hummus With Truvia Recipe

1/4 cup Truvia Baking Blend
1/2 tsp salt
3 Tablespoons water
2 Tablespoons Olive oil
In a food processor, combine the garbanzo beans, cocoa, vanilla, Truvia Baking Blend, salt, water and oil.
Puree until the mixture is smooth, and lumps no longer exist.
You may need to scrape the side.
Add extra water if needed to reach desired consistency.
Serve as a dip with fresh sliced fruit like strawberries, pita chips, tortillas, graham crackers, or pretzel sticks.
