I lost 35 lbs and kept it off by indulging in drinks like my Chocolate Cheesecake Protein Shake! This shake is creamy, full of veggies, chocolaty and oh yea, thanks to Truvia® Natural Sweetener Spoonable’s it’s delightfully sweet! Last January I was almost 200 lbs which was the heaviest that I’ve ever been.
It was hard for me to enjoy life as a new mom of three boys. I was always tired, it hurt to run and I did not like how I felt in my skin. When I realized that by using sweeteners like Truvia® “life was just as sweet” and that I could still have yummy treats, like this chocolate shake, I became very excited about the lifestyle change. Truvia® is a stevia-based, zero calorie sweetener but you would never know it after you taste this shake.
Using sweeteners in my diet for a few months was hands down the best decision that I could have made! I could feel my body detoxing and with the help of exercise and healthy food choices, the pounds began to melt away. I was completely in love with my new lifestyle! It was easy for me to see why Truvia® is America’s #1 stevia sweetener. My diabetic grandmother uses the sweetener as well and she loves it in her chocolate shakes too.
I began to feel so good that I wanted my kids have a similar lifestyle. Thankfully, they never even noticed that I started using Truvia® in their oatmeal, yogurt and “milk shakes.” My oldest son still comes home from school and asks me for a shake. He doesn’t realize that it is loaded with spinach and protein…don’t tell him.
We use Truvia® so much in our home that I’m often running over to Kroger after my workouts to grab a tub. Using my Kroger plus card or free Truvia® printable coupons are perfect for helping me to save money. I’m all about saving dollars on my grocery bill. These boys are eating me out of a house and a home haha!
I can’t wait to share this recipe with you so lets get right to it.
