Triple Berry Protein Parfait

If it has blackberries and is a protein shake, how can it be so low in potassium? Moderator: Because berries are one of the lower potassium fruits.The blackberries contribute 58 mg potassium to the recipe.

reenie765 says:

the "nutrients per serving" doesn't show the grams of sugar... is this recipe safe for diabetics who are controlling their blood sugar WITH diet only? Moderator comment: Yes, one serving contains 6 grams of sugar--most of it is from the natural sugar in the fruit. According to the American Diabetes Association, the total amount of carbohydrate is more important than the the source (sugar or starch) in a food. As a matter of fact, some starch-containing foods are absorbed more rapidly than sugar-containing foods. We provide the total carbohydrate and the Carbohydrate Choices to help people with diabetes incorporate the recipes into their meal plan.
