Beets contain an antioxidant called alpha-lipoic acid. This compound may help lower glucose levels and increase insulin sensitivity.
How To Make Diabetes-Friendly Smoothie Bowl:
What’s in this sugar-free smoothie bowl:
1.Raw Beetroot – as we mentioned above, beetroots are the superfood for people with diabetes.
2.Spinach – is low in starch. Filling up with leafy greens like spinach is a great way to keep your blood sugar levels in check.
3.Frozen Avocado – is packed full of vitamins, nutrients, and fiber. The low-carb, high-fiber ratio is great for blood sugar stability.
4.Unsweetened Coconut Milk – is light on calories, sugar, and carbs, making it a good choice of drink for diabetics.
5.Chia Seeds – are packed with fiber, protein and do not spike the blood sugar.
Once you have peeled and diced your raw beetroot – add all the ingredients to a high-speed blender. If you have a Vitamix blender, it will be quick and easy to make it thick. However, if you have a regular blender, if your blender struggles to blend, you may need to add more liquid, which may lead the smoothie to be a bit looser for a smoothie bowl.
Blend everything until completely smooth.
Pour to a serving bowl and enjoy!
