Additional Information - -
You can use any combination of berries you like, and you can also use
frozen (unsweetened) berries. Agave nectar is a sweetener with a
slightly thinner consistency than honey. It generally has a reduced
impact on blood sugar. Look for it in the aisle where you find honey
and syrups.
