I found this in a Cooking Light magazine. It says it only has 46.6 carbs and 2.5 g fiber. it tastes heavenly and I need all the fiber I can get...lol. But it is worth making. Sometimes,. I use marion berries since I live in Oregon and they are really good in it too. It is a little time conseuming but so worth it. The total time from start to finish is 3 hours 34 minutes.
