Perhaps I did not see it, but cannot find the nutritional guide for this item. I'm especially interested in carbs, sodium, and phosphorous, as I have insulin-dependent diabetes (type 2) and kidney disease. If someone can include nutritional info for the recipes, I would be eternally grateful! Thanks!
Using USDA's FoodData Central database, the nutrition facts label for this recipe would be approximately 360 Calories, 79gm Carbohydrates (~5 "carb choices"), 6.5gm Protein, 140mg Phosphorus, and 1020mg Potassium. Depending on your individual lab work and renal dietitian's advice, this would be a recipe to divide into at least 4 servings due to the simple carbohydrates (juice & fruit's natural sugars) and high potassium ingredients (orange juice, banana, and mango). Also, since it would melt at room temperature, it would be counted towards fluid intake for the day (if you are on a fluid restriction). You may be able to reduce the potassium content by substituting pineapple juice instead of orange juice.
