    Hi

    Can we use Splenda with CD? I know on some of the VLCDs you can. I've just read a recipe for a "frappe" in my new Aerolatte box - it's coffee, cold water and sugar all frothed up. I figured I could maybe use Splenda instead of the sugar and it could be my "drink" instead of tea etc.

    Happy days!!!

    There must be something in the binding agent they use for the tablet version.

    This one says you can do it with just water and as I love iced coffees .. :D

    whoops I thought you could use tablet sweetener, I bought some specially for CD.

    I have been using this for my cups of tea
    (I have splenda tablet sweetener)

    I do have granulated splenda in the cupboard but I didn't think we were allowed to use that?? It wasn't very clear to me I hope it hasn't affected my weightloss :confused:

    Miss r - I've just looked it up. It says you can use the tablet version not the granulated :-( I'll just have to crush a tablet!

    Rumbly - us single girls have to resort to such measures :p

    A frappe is normally a cold blended coffee usually made with milk; the "recipes" that came with my Aerolate said you make a "delicious" one with water instead of milk and some sugar. I made it with sweetener.... it was vile!
