    Be careful with the apple juice... its commonly mistaken as a health food because its made of fruit, but is very high in sugar. I'd bypass that alltogether, or boil apples in with it for the flavour. Same goes for flavoured milks, they're packed with sugar, just a heads up for those that watch carbs - 8/7/11

    The information for the crasins is WRONG! If you go to recipe makeover, and select the crasins - check the nutritional info - the one selected says 1.5 c only has 150 calories and NO carbs. Change it to cranberries, dried sweeten and you get an extra 400 calories and 150 carb (per recipe). - 4/11/13

    Be careful the nutritional info is WRONG. Just take two cups of apple juice and 1 1/2 cups of craisins, divide by six and you get over 36 grams of sugar per serving. The nutritional chart says less than 5 grams of sugar, that's not true. Doesn't matter organic or regular. Both the same. - 3/10/14

    Very yummy! I had it for breakfast but think it would also make a nice dessert treat. I'm allergic to soy but used vanilla almond milk which was delicious! - 9/1/10
