Reviews for Strawberry-Raspberry Ice
"This is a special summer treat I'd like everyone to try out."
"Going to try this - but use Stevia - Dietician in my cardiologist's office convinced me of the hazards of all chemical sweeteners, including Splenda. Wife and I both gave up all artificially sweetened foods/soda. Have lost more than 50# each in last 14 months with this the primary change in our diet."
"I would like to make this with Splenda in place of the sugar - I will post to say how it turned out. I will also try using unsweetened strawberries."
"Absolutely delicious! Especially nice treat for summertime. Note that I have made this with 2 cups of unsweetened frozen strawberries from our garden (instead of sweetened frozen ones), and it tasted just great! I have made this recipe quite a few times, and my husband (a big chocolate fan) is suprised by how much he enjoys it."
