I used some lighter alternatives to make this recipe a little healthier. Instead of butter I used I Can't Believe It's Not Butter and I used 1% milk. You could also use fat-free milk, but I just used what I had. I used Stevia in the mixture, but I prefer regular sugar for sprinkling. I liked it warmed up a little, but it's just as good served at room temperature.
