Diabetic Smoothie Recipes

Almost everyone has a sweet tooth – and that includes diabetics. How can a diabetic satisfy that urge for sweets without overloading your diet with high glycemic index foods that are full of processed sugars and raise your blood glucose? The short answer is: try a diabetic smoothie. A diabetic smoothie can be as varied as your taste and imagination. Made with the right ingredients, a diabetic smoothie can replace a meal or make a great snack that is filling without adding empty calories.

Diabetic Smoothie Recipes
