• I am shocked that you would suggest Splenda in a recipe. Aren’t we supposed to get rid of “fake food,” especially ones that could cause cancer?

  • This recipe is great for our guests who have diabetes, and would like to enjoy a sweeter beverage. Everything in Moderation is the key to preventative health concerns and still allows you to enjoy the foods that you love.

  • Splenda has proven links to ALzhimer’s disease. How about using Truvia or one of the other natural sweeteners?

  • I agree. I’ve researched Splenda and the results are very poor. Splenda gives me such gastro problems! When I worked in the healthcare field, diabetic patients who used Splenda saw spikes in blood sugar levels.
