This is very thick and rich tasting. I followed this recipe as is but for those who wish to use a different source of "sweetner", I would taste before adding too much!

Portions are generous sized. One filled me up for breakfast.

I was thinking that you could add unsweetened cocoa powder, vanilla extract and a frozen banana (one fruit has to be frozen for this). It could taste "sinful".:devil:

P.S. This is from one of my favorite cookbooks "Unbelievable Desserts w Splenda" by Marilyn Koch. (You rock, Marilyn!)
