Notes

For the sweetener, I like to use ½ cup low carb sweetener plus ¼ tsp stevia powder extract. This reduces the amount of erythritol. However, you can use about 1 ¼ to 1 ½ cups low carb sweetener instead of the two different sweeteners.
Avoid using a sweetener with too much erythritol in it as it can crystallize in the refrigerator. If the erythritol does crystallize, add a bit of heavy cream and reheat in the microwave. The crystals should dissolve with the added cream and heating.
Each serving is about 2 tablespoons.
