Actually, I usually eat two bowls and then have another two bowls the next day. We get it in 500 ml boxes. The stuff ain't cheap: ~$8 for that 500 ml container, but it is soooo good. It's pretty much the only stuff I can find that isn't full of weird stuff and guar gum/xanthum gum/carageenan.

Yeah, I know those gums and carageenan are natural ingredients. But, they are usually added to stuff so they can put less of the good stuff, like real cream. I tend to avoid them because they are a way of cheating and the flavour of stuff without is usually better.
