Wondering why we need to peel the fruit as that would just be added fiber. These are some of my favorite ingredients and wonderful for this time of the year when we can get fresh cranberries. Thank you

It sure does sound yummy. unfortunately I dont see as to how this is in any way diabetic friendly. It doesnt mention the sugar content from the cranberries or apples and it already carries a carb tag of 15g. If I was to eat this my blood sugar would explode. Sigh…it really does sound yummy though.
