  2. Hmmmm, I must have done something wrong because this did not turn out right. I couldn't figure out what 1/4 Stevia meant. Is it 1/4 cup? If so, that was my problem as I only used about 5 packets.

  3. Ahh yes, 1/4 cup (4 Tbsp) Stevia. Each packet contains 2 tsp I believe, so you used 10 tsp which is 3 1/3 Tbsp....so just a little bit more?

  4. I love your recipes but I have problem with portioning. If its 1 serving then it must be very huge -almost 4 cups or is it 2 servings?

  6. Nope, not huge, but it will keep you satisfied -- 1 serving. When it's blended, the carrots and ice cubes reduce down to much less than the original measurement.
