Smoothies can be good sources of vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, fiber and protein and can also help people achieve health goals, including managing their blood sugar. But while these drinks are generally considered nutritious, standard versions can be high in calories and carbohydrates. That’s why we pored over our recipe database and found healthy smoothie recipes for diabetics.
(It’s a good idea to check with your dietitian or doctor before making any decisions regarding your diabetes care. Also, checking your blood sugar before and after drinking a smoothie is important so you can see how it affects your diabetes control.)
With warmer weather underway, you'll want to try this easy and refreshing smoothie — it takes just 10 minutes to throw together and has only 10 grams of carbohydrate per serving!
