I don't see how this could be a diabetic recipe when it is practically nothing but sugar. Dietitian comment: It's because one serving provides 15 grams of carbohydrate which can be worked into a diabetes diet meal plan. I would recommend a serving of fruit over[INVALID]s but it's still possible to include these[INVALID]s. Portion control is important.
