Can you made simple syrup with Splenda?

  1. You shouldn't need to, as Splenda easily dissolves.

    1. With all due respect, why would you want to?

      1. It'll basically be sweetened water but not anywhere close to syrupy.

          I think that was my question. It's not even a true simple syrup. 2 tsp lemon zest 2 cups sugar, 1/2 cup water ,1 cup lemon juice boiled for 30 seconds. It's a lemon aid concentrate. I can have/ don't need that much sugar. Jerry

            I hate splenda, but it dissolves easily so no boiling necessary. but I have simply learned to enjoy lemonade with just a little honey or sugar. try it!
