Sweeten Up Your Valentine’s Day with a Delicious Date-Night Strawberry Smoothie

Let’s face it, Valentine’s Day is about sweethearts and all things sweet. Whether your sweeties are your children, a spouse, or a significant other ’tis the season to treat them to some love-filled goodies.

I love SPLENDA® No Calorie Sweetener in one of the other loves of my life, coffee. Did you know though that although SPLENDA® is awesome as a beverage sweetener you can also use it for all sorts of things.

SPLENDA® No Calorie Sweetener, Granulated can be used almost anywhere sugar is used, including cooking and baking. It measures cup-for-cup like sugar, but contains 678 calories less than sugar on a cup-for-cup basis. One teaspoon of SPLENDA® No Calorie Sweetener, Granulated contains the sweetness equivalency of one teaspoon of sugar with no calories or carbohydrates.

Here are a couple of sweet ideas for you to use this Valentine’s Day to treat your loved ones:

Replace another sweetener with SPLENDA®. While you’re making your heart-shaped cookies and rich chocolate fudge swap out your normal sweetener for SPLENDA®.

Create an awesome Date-Night Smoothie or daiquiri to share with your sweetie using this recipe:

Or if you’re snowed in this winter. Check out my recipe for Snow Cream and as a healthier version consider using skim milk, almond milk, coconut milk or soy milk and SPLENDA® to sweeten up the taste. This is a great, sweet treat to enjoy and snuggle up with your Valentine.
