Loved, loved this...it is mouth puckering good! Just the right amount of yummy refreshing coolness needed for a hot summer day. I used splenda for my sugar and it turned out excellent. You just need to know that sugar and splenda do not weigh the same. I cut the recipe down to serve 2 and my splenda came out to 1/3 cup...so if you make the full recipe I would use 1 cup of Splenda. The photo doesn't do justice to the green color of this dish. The basil add a nice herby flavor. It's a keeper! Thanks for posting :)

Love the basil and lime combo in this tart yet sweet treat. A great palate cleanser that will cool off those hot summer nights. The only change I made was to use Splenda For Baking (different from regular Splenda) instead of regular sugar. Will make again. Thanks for the post.

Tart and sweet and so good and refreshing! I halved the recipe and used 2 limes and 1 big lemon and used basil from the garden. Yum! Thanks! Made for PRMR game.

This lovely ice really does look like snow, but it tastes like summer. An excellent palate cleanser, neither too tart nor too sweet. Thanks, Noo!
