This is a post of ‘firsts’. Last month I entered my first ever giveaway over at An Unrefined Vegan and for the first time I won something I had entered and now I am hosting my own first ever giveaway!
I was lucky enough to win an exciting box of goodies from the very generous company, NuNaturals who make the most spectacular stevia products. I never before realised that different brands of stevia varied in flavour, but now I see that they really do. NuNaturals offers sweetness without even a trace of bitterness, and with exciting naturally flavoured drops like orange, lemon and peppermint, it’s hard not to fall in love. What’s more, NuNaturals make a whole range of products beyond stevia, including the amazing Lo Han fruit based, calorie free sweetener and deliciously nutty, oat fiber.
And I have the opportunity to share some of these amazing products with you!
FOUR readers will win one bottle of EACH of the Lemon, Cherry Vanilla and Peppermint Flavoured Stevia Liquids, PLUS a 50 packet box of NuStevia White Stevia Powder packets PLUS A FREE BONUS PRODUCT!
This giveaway is open to readers worldwide, so go ahead and enter wherever you are! Entry is open until midnight GMT on Wednesday April 23rd. Click the link below to enter via Rafflecopter and make sure to get more entries by following NuNaturals and Bunny Kitchen on Twitter and more!

To showcase the wonderful products I have been able to try, I will be sharing a green smoothie using NuNaturals products each day of the giveaway, for 7 days!
Day 1 is a summery, refreshing, strawberry and mint green smoothie which will really lift you up at any time of day! Inspiration and proportions come from the Vedged Out Green Smoothie Challenge which has me down almost 2 dress sizes in less than 2 months! All whilst indulging in tonnes of delicious plant based foods, from sweet smoothies to creamy dressed salads and huge bowls of steaming soup and unlimited vegetable crudites with a generous portion of cumin spiked homemade hummus. Never hungry, a dieters dream.
