My food processor holds 5 cups and I did exactly as the directions called. This was my first time making it so maybe there were too many nuts in comparison to everything else....but it's still very good. I happen to like the crunch.
I would think with a larger capacity I would add extra nuts and cream cheese [especially if it's a 20 cup capacity.
I'm so new when it comes to food processors that I had no idea they come in different sizes till this post. LOL!!!
I have a 5 cup Ninja blender. I follow the recipe and love it. I don't know if this is more of a family recipe thing or not, but if anybody likes Pretzel Jello we take this recipe and add a couple shakes of salt. It sort of makes you think it has pretzels in it because of the crunch and salt. We call it Pretzel Jello Ice Cream which is an interesting name considering it has no pretzels in it, no Jello, and no Ice Cream! GOOD STUFF!!
Ok....I just have to give this two thumbs up. I took this to a Super Bowl party tonight. I also made the cheescake because of delightx8's post.
Every one loved it and wanted to know what it had in it.
One of my friends was lamenting about how she couldn't have any of the desserts because they had sugar in them. I was so happy to tell her mine had Truvia and she quickly went and had a helping. I told her about the THM book and the great recipes and she wants me to send her the link.
JennyMomof8: varneygang6 I think the assumption is that you don't eat past full which is a learned skill for most of us. I don't remember much being said in the book about it but I'm sure S & P would advise you to practice portion control. Hope that helps! : )

joyfulmomof6: JennyMomof8, are you drinking almond milk at all? It has way more calcium than milk. Yes, it is a huge shift in thinking.

shariannamarie: Hi! Does anyone know why the book says not to eat oatmeal, sprouted breads right away when starting? When can I start to include these?? Thank you!

JennyMomof8: Thank you, joyfulmomof6, I do have almond milk in smoothies quite a bit but not everyday. Do you drink it straight up? I haven't tried it but I do know it has lots of calcium.

smithfarm: I'm also new to this forum thing. I guess I can ask a question in the Shoutbox. Why is soy milk frowned upon? We have been drinking it for years. Hope I can figure out how to view any answers I get.
