Helpful hints

  • Due to the high carbohydrate content, a half portion is recommended if you have diabetes. Sugar substitutes can be used to replace sugar in many recipes. Check with your dietitian for adjustments to recipes or serving size based on your individual carbohydrate requirements.
  • If sugar substitute is used instead of sugar, carbohydrate is reduced to 20 grams, carbohydrate choices are reduced to one.
