Super yummy.
Oh and for all the scoffers and this isn't natural, live the life of a diabetic with all the dietary restrictions for a month and then let's talk. Finding something that tastes great, doesn't take hours to prepare and is something you WANT to share with friends is always top notch in my book.

Evaziem, you should probably do some research. Type 1 is NOT caused by diet. Ask a doctor. As for the tub of crystal light, you only use 1½ tsp. Use the rest for drinks.

Desserts? For diabetics or anybody? How about some plane berries?
On PBS Dr. Amen, M.D., a famous "brain doc" said: "Yes, I eat a dessert and it's berries…" He is not diabetic. Maybe that is why he is NOT!

This sounds really delicious and pretty for a holiday dessert. What about lime flavor with cherries on top of some plain whipped topping for Christmas? Cherry flavor for Valentine's Day?
