the receipe sounds wonderful. but aren't we suppose to watching our sugars also.
This has 14 grams of sugar, isn't that a lot and how could we cut that done? Using unsweetened OJ?
Thanks

14 g of sugar does not mean its table sugar, but the sugar in the fruit. This is important for diabetics to know, but not those with normal sugar metabolism, unless they have elected to eat a diet low in all sugars, regardless of source. Of course it’s unsweetened OJ, no added sugar. OJ with added sugar is not really considered OJ, but a fruit drink like Sunny Delight. Depending on the type of berries used, sugars vary as well.
