No complaints from the diabetic in our household! I quite like it too. I left out the powdered non dairy creamer and then, when I make a cup, I form a paste with canned milk (fat free)and the dry mix before filling the cup with boiling water. Also used 8 packets of stevia powder, maybe not sweet enough for all sweet tooths! Thanks for this recipe.
