Very yummy. Almost taste like there's a spice in it. Nice to have the sauce on the side to add to the fruit as needed.

I am reading exchanges from Lilly diabetes planning guide that I received from my dietician. 1 fruit exchange is "3/4 cup blackberries or blueberries; or 1 cup rasberries; or 1 1/4 cup strawberries" This recipe only uses 1/2 cup berries per serving. I don't think the exchanges are correct as listed. I would be healthier with a cup of berries 60 calories and 1/2 cup sugar free pudding 65 calories.
