I made this yesterday, and it's surprisingly filling.

I'm going to add some more Splenda to mine since I used the unsweetened baking cocoa to make it, and it seemed a tiny bit bitter.

Thanks for trying it! No one believes that this is actually pretty good. And, someone else made the same comment to me about an extra pack of splenda. It's true if you haven't been totally sugar free for any length of time. Love it that you like it, though! I will be reviewing a book soon called Sugar Shock, and it is amazing. I am eating more protein and finding out I don't need as much sweet. It's crazy.

I really liked this!!! It would be better with cool whip on top, but I'm a volume eater and LOVED how much you get for 100 calories!!! And it's SuperFood friendly (especially with a little added cinnamon!)
