Just this much of the recipe gives me enough to have a few of these every night for the whole week.
***Note*** I originally wrote this article in 2009. Today it is 2016 and since initially writing this I have learned and discovered much more about the HCG diet. Today I make this recipe with coconut sugar and not artificial sweeteners so I updated this recipe as well. The reason is that it has less of an affect on our glucose levels and it is a safer option for diabetics. So in other words it won't cause my weight to rise like regular processed white sugars would. At the same time I am trying to lose and maintain my weight and not blow up like a balloon I also want to live free of cancer so I have completely removed all artificial sweeteners from my diet and I now use raw organic honey very sparingly because it is obnoxiously sweet and coconut sugar when needed. I like this version so much better than the previous version of artificial ingredients. I hope you enjoy it too.
