How To Make Diabetes-Friendly Green Smoothie:

What’s in this diabetic-friendly smoothie:

1. Green Apple –  contain a compound called pectin, a fiber source that works as a prebiotic to promote the growth of healthy bacteria in your gut. The pectin found in green apples can help you break down foods more efficiently.
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. Avocado – is packed full of vitamins, nutrients, and fiber. The low-carb, high-fiber ratio is great for blood sugar stability.
4. Celery – contains vitamin C, beta carotene, and flavonoids, but there are at least 12 additional kinds of antioxidant nutrients found in a single stalk.
5. Cucumber- are high in nutrients. Cucumbers are low in calories but high in many important vitamins and minerals. They also pack an incredible amount of water.
6. Fresh Ginger – may drastically lower blood sugars and improve heart disease risk factors. Helps indigestion and has anti-inflammatory detox properties.

Wash the fresh veggies, then dice them. Add all the ingredients to a high-speed blender with some water and blitz until smooth.
That’s it! Easy peasy, lemon squeezy.
