      This looks great! We were spending $4 a week on this at the store. Anyone know if Stevia or non-calorie sweetener can be substituted, and if so, in what quantity? Thanks!

      If you do the math - 5.5 cups of liquid = 88 tablespoons so it all depends on the amount of concentrate you use for each serving.
