I was given Zevia to try. All opinions are 100% my own.
So, all my friends in Utah have me hooked. They always talked Cafe Rio this, Cafe Rio that… and I had no idea what they were talking about. Well, when a Cafe Rio recently opened in Fort Collins, I FLIPPED when I first had the sweet pork burrito. Like, life changing. I could eat that dang burrito every single day!
Unfortunately for my waistline, I can’t eat it everyday. I’d be a zillion pounds! So when I was thinking of an easy summer meal that I could recreate into a lower calorie version, Cafe Rio’s sweet pork was at the top of my list.
I recently was given some Zevia to try, and wanted to work it into the recipe. I was afraid it might not turn out sweet enough (Zevia isn’t an overly sweet soda, and doesn’t have the sickly fake sweet taste that some artificial diet sodas have)- but I was totally pleased with how developed the flavor was.
This pork IS slightly less sweet, since we’re not adding sugar- but it is a delicious version that tastes anything but diet.
