Substitution for orange juice in diabetic recipe?

laredo | Jan 9, 2008 07:04 AM

I am hoping to convert an orange cranberry bread to one that diabetics can eat. The recipe calls for one cup orange juice. Can I substitute water for the orange juice? I want to cut both the carbs and the potassium of the orange juice.

I am planning to add 1/2 cup powdered milk and 1/2 teaspoon baking soda as suggested on the Spenda container.

Other ingredients: 1 cup Splenda subbing for 1 cup sugar, egg, flour, baking powder, cranberries, pecans, and orange peel.

All advice greatly appreciated!
