This is a tasty alternative to the $4 version, and I am pleased to say I didn't really notice the "frankensugar" flavor I usually associate with artificial sweeteners. That said, I used Splenda as I really have an aversion to stevia. I found I needed more ice to get the consistency I wanted, but otherwise the recipe is great. Thanks for posting!
