I tried some but had to throw them out. I found some sf syrup at a local store that was very similar to davinci syrups (had not tried any yet) I was leary of the ingredients but tried it. I a immediatly got a headache, and felt ill. Woke up the next day and my chest is covered in little red bumps. I just threw them out. I was hoping I could do some artifical sweetners but it is looking like I can't.
I only used 1tsp in the whole batch.
They tasted great!

As a cream cheese lover I looked up the recipe link and was astounded to see
"3/4 cup of granulated splenda"
Can that be right? It seems like an awful lot of splenda for just one 8 oz. pack of cream cheese?

I only use 1/2 cup of splenda and I find that is sweet enough.
I just made a batch of eggnog flavor clouds dusted with freshly ground nutmeg.
Absolutely decadent!
I also make banana, pumpkin, and raspberry.
I am thinking of trying coffee or peppermint next time.

Sounds interesting.....what is the sweetener in that?
Does it add any additional carbs?

According to my food tracker, they are 1.3g each. I don't know what the sweetener is, but I figured it would have minimal impact considering the original recipe called for much more Splenda. I don't like things super sweet, though, so keep that in mind.

They work great. I use both the McCormick brand and the Watkins.

I use about 10 drops of Ez-Sweetz

I also tried a half a pouch of that new flavor pouch that you add to frosting.
I used chocolate marshmallow last time. It doesn't have a sweetener in it do you have to still add something sweet.

They are hard and can be a little difficult to bite down on.
I guess you could leave them out for a few minutes. I make my clouds small so that they don't require much biting.

I have never tried these. This thread is giving me inspiration! I like the SF pudding idea. Would Davinci syrups work as well?

Yup, that is what I use, as long as they are SF.

I take them out of the freezer after about 30 min and store them in the fridge.
I think they even taste better from the fridge.

I forgot to mention that I also halve the butter in my version because I like a stronger cream cheese flavor. The white chocolate pudding mix really enhances the "cheesecake" similarity!

Cream cheese clouds

I found these Duncan Hines frosting creations. They are little packs of flavor with no sugar and only 2 carbs per package (in the frosting isle)
I added the cinnamon roll flavor to my cream cheese clouds and WOW!!! They were incredible!

I also bought chocolate mint, and chocolate almond.

They also have cotton candy, white choc raspberry, bubble gum, cherry vanilla, strawberry shortcake, caramel, chocolate marshmellow, orange creme, and mocha

These frosting mixes were discussed on another thread. They sound really interesting. CaliOkieGal4now added them to brownies and some other desserts.

How much do you use, or do you add unsweetened flavoring?
I could try that.
They are not frozen yet, perhaps the will taste stronger when they are.
I added some green and blue food coloring to them and they look great.
