    splenda is o.k. but why not try SomerSweet, you can get it on line. and it takes much less than sugar or Splenda, and the taste is terrific. Just ask any of the millions of Somersizers. Thanks Martha for the recipe it is good, and my family is prone to be or is diabetic. but thanks to somersweet we can have much more than ever before.

    Do you dissolve the Splenda as you would the sugar, or just add it in granular form? Just wondering, as my husband is also a diabetic.

    Has anyone ever made this or lemonade with Splenda instead of sugar? Was wondering if it was as good substituting it....
