Usually in Seattle we get one or two hot days, but this year we’ve experienced week after week of super-hot days. Most of the city (including #mytinybungalow), doesn’t have air conditioning, so I’ve been getting creative with ways to keep cool. One of my favorite (and yummiest) ways to stay cool in this weather is by serving up sweet corn gazpacho for dinner! Recently, I whipped up this delicious rendition featuring grilled sweet corn and onions — and it has less sugar in it because I used Truvia Brown Sugar Blend.

When it’s hot like this, we usually eat our meals outdoors, picnic-style. Gazpacho is kind of the perfect thing to bring to a picnic because it packs up so well in clasp jars, while looking super chic and Instagram-worthy! The taste of this sweet corn gazpacho is so refreshing.

Most of the recipes I’ve tried in the past usually call for sugar in the gazpacho… lots of it. I’m always trying to make sure that what we put into our bodies has the best ingredients, so I always question whether we really need that much sugar. While creating this recipe, I noticed that the taste of brown sugar was a really lovely complement to the smokiness of the grilled corn and onion — and nicely accentuates the sweetness of the corn, too! Instead of using traditional brown sugar, I used Truvia Brown Sugar Blend, a blend of stevia sweetener and brown sugar, because it has the same texture and taste, but with 75% fewer calories than traditional brown sugar. Once fall comes and my baking increases, I’ll definitely be using this more and more to help us reduce the amount of sugar in my recipes as it also bakes and browns just like brown sugar, and tastes just as delicious!
