Gail Butler adds: The changes I have made are that
I use 3 or 4 packages of Splenda instead of the Stevia.
Also tonight I had run out of the unflavored gelatin
so I tried using a box of SF orange jello and mixed it with 1/3 cup of boiling
water and then added it to the blender as the recipe suggests.
I also added a capful of orange extract just to be sure
that it was really orange-y. Oh my goodness! It was
terrific. So good in fact that I ended up eating two
cups before it had a chance to jell. It tasted like creamscicles.
