Helpful hints

  • Plain or flavored nondairy creamer may be used instead or rice milk. Susan says her patients and teammates prefer coconut cream flavor.
  • Vanilla or coconut extract may be used in place of almond extract.
  • For diabetics use Splenda® granular sweetener instead of sugar to reduce carbohydrate to 44 grams and calories to 364 per serving or serve a half portion.
