MY REVIEW

"sugar content is too high, I like the previous suggestion from the diabetic person in using diet 7 up! Sugar is a large concern -- why are all your recipes not showing the grams of sugar in the Nutrition Facts?"

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Jul. 15, 2010

"I am a diabetic and this would not be a good choice for me... 41 g of carbs. too many. I do make a granita though. I use 2 cups of frozen blueberries, 2 cans of sugar free 7 up, 2 T lime juice and 1/2 cup Spenda. No cooking only processing in the food processor...freeze...break into chunks and process again...serve. This does sound great for people that can eat a lot of carbs."
