Sugar Free Vanilla Spread for Toast or Crackers

Almost 9 years ago I discovered and started to use Splenda - the sugar alternative. It was part of discovering the low-carb lifestyles and the effects of sugar and flour in our systems.

Although we don't regularly follow any low-carb way of life, we do do a detox version about twice a year and I keep a huge file of low-carb, sugar free recipes on hand as well as two cookbooks I wouldn't be without.

During this time I also signed up for the Splenda email newsletter and once in a while you'll find a real gem. This recipe is one that has been around forever... and used to use a different sugar-free alternative LONG before Splenda hit the American markets. I know of people who were making similar versions 20-30 years ago. (There is one that uses cinnamon that people seems to absolutely love!)

This is just a simple sugar free vanilla spread - great on graham crackers, fruit or delicious on toast.
