5 Great Smoothies For Diabetics To Drink

5 Great Smoothies For Diabetics To Drink

If you have decided to take part in the Full Body Cleanse in the New Year and you have diabetes, there are a few things to take into consideration. You don’t have to deprive yourself of certain foods, but you do want to make sure that you are eating a balanced diet. You are also going to have to focus a little more on vegetables than fruit, but that doesn’t mean you have to avoid fruit altogether.

Certain fruits have a lower glycemic index than others do, which means that your blood sugar won’t spike when you consume them. A great way to consume fruit while cleansing is to blend them into smoothies. To help make your life a little easier, here are five delicious smoothie recipes that are beneficial for diabetics.

Note: When making smoothies, it is important to not add any sweeteners like agave syrup or grade A maple syrup. You don’t need the added sugar on top of the natural sugars in the fruit.

For all of the smoothies, blend all of the ingredients in a blender until you get a smooth consistency. You can add more or less liquid depending on how thick you want the smoothie to be.
