Hi there [FIRST_NAME]....

Did you know the average American guzzles nearly a full gallon of soda every week. Why is that so bad? Because a recent study found that drinking one to two sodas per day increases your chances of being overweight or obese by nearly 33 percent. And diet soda is no better. When researchers in San Antonio tracked a group of elderly subjects for nearly a decade, they found that compared to nondrinkers, those who drank two or more diet sodas a day watched their waistlines increase five times faster. The researchers theorize that the artificial sweeteners trigger appetite cues, causing you to unconsciously eat more at subsequent meals. Crazy right? So instead drinking soda, even diet, conisder the No Added Sugar, Diabetic Safe Strawberry-Basil Lemonade Recipe below.

So check this out. Steviva Blend and Fructevia were designed for cooking and baking and so is our line of attractive, super strong and dependable organic bamboo utensils. The best part is for a limited time they are free with your purchase of our new five pound bags.

Our organic bamboo utensils are 14" long and have a convenient "eye" in case you want to hang them from a rack or hook.

The Steviva Brands line of bamboo utensils are made of organically grown Moso bamboo that is distinctively attractive and super strong.

Bamboo is 16 percent harder than maple, it's naturally anti-microbial; it holds the promise of a sustainable, cost effective, and responsible alternative to the widespread clear cutting of our old growth forests. This naturally harvested bamboo is not a food source, or a habitat, for the Giant Panda.

I have a garden full of basil and strawberries are coming into season. There is nothing more refreshing than this amazing and sophisticated version of lemonade. Kids and adults will enjoy this variation of traditional lemonade.

Ingredients for the strawberry-basil syrup:
1 cup Fructevia, Steviva Blend or 1/8th teaspoon of Stevia Powder
1 cup water
1 pound strawberries, washed, hulled, and sliced 1/2 inch thick
3/4 cup tightly packed basil leaves

For the lemonade:
8 cups cold water
2 cups lemon juice, chilled
1/2 pound strawberries, washed, hulled, and sliced 1/2 inch thick, for garnish
1/4 cup tightly packed, blemish-free basil leaves, for garnish

Instructions for strawberry-basil syrup:

Place the Fructevia, Steviva Blend or 1/8th teaspoon of Stevia Powder and water in a medium saucepan over high heat and stir until dissolved and the mixture comes to a boil.

Add the strawberries, reduce the heat to medium low, and simmer until the strawberries have softened, about 10 minutes.

Remove from the heat, add the basil leaves, and stir to incorporate. Cool to room temperature, about 45 minutes.

Strain through a fine-mesh strainer set over a medium bowl; discard the solids. Cover the syrup and refrigerate until ready to use.

For the lemonade:

Pour the water, lemon juice, and 1 1/2 cups of the strawberry-basil syrup into a 3-quart pitcher or punch bowl and stir to combine.

Taste and add additional strawberry-basil syrup as needed. Add ice and garnish with the sliced strawberries and basil leaves.
