Diabetic-Friendly Recipes: Smoothies

14 Delicious Diabetic-Friendly Recipes for Smoothies

Making sure your daily nutritional needs are met can be hard, especially if you suffer from type 2 diabetes. Those familiar with diabetes know that a diet consisting of healthy foods is crucial. You want to eat foods that will stabilize your blood sugar, stave off any unhealthy cravings (kudos if you crave raw green vegetables!), and help keep you slim and trim. 

The Importance of Healthy Eating and Diabetes

We understand that constantly having to watch what you eat can be frustrating — especially when you just want something that tastes good. More often than not, diabetic-friendly recipes can be bland and anything but appetizing. This can make your many attempts at living a healthy lifestyle fall short. 

Meal replacements and protein powders are a popular option for diabetics as they provide a quick dose of nutrients when blood sugar levels are dropping. However, not all of these products are made equally. 

Be sure to opt for a meal product that tastes good, has everything you need to manage your health, and is already made for you. Swee2ooth products can be used in a variety of ways, but one of our favorite diabetic-friendly recipes is smoothies. They’re an easy way to get all of your nutritional needs met in one drink. Plus, there’s no cooking involved, so you enjoy the health benefits of added raw fruits and vegetables. 

Your health is always our priority, and Swee2ooth Super Blends have been designed with your health and taste buds in mind. Try these tasty diabetic-friendly recipes the next time you’re in the mood for a smoothie!

Choosing the Right Protein for Smoothies

Lucky for you, each Swee2ooth Super Blend is packed with top of the line ingredients that are proven to keep your type 2 diabetes in check. In our chocolate, vanilla, and cinnamon flavors you will find fast-absorbing whey and slow-absorbing casein proteins to lower blood glucose levels and encourage the pancreas to produce insulin before you eat a meal. As you can imagine, these antioxidant-rich proteins are the meal replacement of choice within the diabetic and pre-diabetic communities. 

In addition, our blends contain essential vitamins and minerals for managing a range of health conditions. In managing diabetes, the combination of biotin and chromium picolinate work together to improve blood sugar levels and insulin resistance. Magnesium is added to ensure proper levels in the body, as well as the purest form of cinnamon extract, Cinnulin PF®, which increases the body’s response to insulin and is used for its superior flavor. The fiber and healthy fats from organic flaxseed, chia seed, and konjac root included in the formula have been proven to reduce insulin spikes in diabetic patients, and provide tons of polyunsaturated omega-3s for heart health. 

All you have to do is mix up your favorite Swee2ooth flavor and enjoy all of the health benefits you get from just one serving!
