    This recipe sounds terrific, but how can there be no carbohydrates when there is a banana in the mix?


  • Maverick

    This recipe sounds great…however, this recipe has about 18 carbs per serving if my calculations are correct and not 0 carbs. This is certainly not a low- or no-carb recipe for those who are counting carbs.

    Bananas and pineapples are big red flags…


  • Michael Thomson

    Wow! Sounds terrific, but pineapple and bananas spell carbohydrates in my book…

    Great observation. HOWEVER,, Carbs are not altogether a BAD thing. It is not wheat which has greater side effects, and you need the energy.

    This is a great recipe for those on Weight Watchers because it would be 0 points so long as the pineapple is fresh not canned.
