Diabetic Smoothies - How To Make Smoothies Diabetic Safe?

by Casey

I am just learning about smoothies but the few that I have tried always make my sugar levels go sky high. I especially like the fruit smoothies and wonder if there is such a thing as a sugar free smoothie.


Any tips you can give me are apprecciated. I think you are doing a great job especially after reading about your family's health and up bringing. You've all done well so keep it up.

Casey,

Here are some ways to create a smoothie safer for a diabetic:

1 - Use water instead of juice as the liquid of the smoothie.

2 - Sweeten the smoothie with stevia rather than other natural sugar sweeteners. If you are trying to get a fruit flavor, try using the the berry flavored stevia. It will add a lot of flavor with no sugar spikes. That will get you closer to a sugar-free smoothie.

Try using berries as well. They are lower in sugar content than other types of fruit.

3 - Some find that adding some kind of fiber and protein like hemp seed powder helps slow down the absorption of the sugars.

I hope this helps!

Happy Blending!
