Dietitian Notes / Recipe Tips

This recipe is an excellent sweet treat but remember it is easy to get carried away. Share with a friend or half the recipe so you are only making enough for one serve. This reduces any temptation.

Variation:
Try a combination of different unsweetened juices blended with fresh and frozen fruits including raspberries, blueberries, mango, canned or peeled fresh peach and watermelon.
