Question: Are the recipes in the free Smoothie Handbook ebook diabetic safe smoothie recipes?
Answer: The answer to that question can vary depending on what type of diabetes and which smoothie recipe that you picked.
I do not have diabetes. So I not have first hand experience with it.
But I do have friends that have both Type 1 and 2 diabetes. They have given mostly feedback on the green smoothies that they drink. It was interesting that they could drink green smoothies, even though there was fruit in the smoothie. Adding some type of fiber does help slow down the absorption of sugar into the body.
