This is (West) Indian but quite a bit like Italian ice, except better, I think. Berries or any colorful food is important for one's daily nutrition, remember. Blueberries are beneficial for every blood type.You'll want to have a sweet tooth, this is a veritable ambrosia slushy! I wouldn't quite recommend this for anybody with recurrent yeast issues, of course. (The asterisks mark which ingredients are 'infrequent neutrals' for my type A, according to the Health Series Books. These 'infrequent neutrals', have a detrimental effect on me knowing what my food allergies are!).
