Nutritional information

Per 1 tbsp serving:

  • Cho 2g | pro 1g | fat 0g | fiber 0.1g | sodium 25mg | chol 0mg
  • Food exchanges: up to 2 tbsp may be considered "free". If ¼ cup is used - count as 1 vegetable exchange or ½ fruit exchange.
  • Low sodium diets: omit salt from recipe.


  1. Also found that substitute to equal ½ cup sugar was not quite sweet enough for me - so adjust to your own taste.
  2. Original recipe did not call for chocolate extract but I find that it does help the flavor.
