If you have diabetes that doesn’t mean you have to give up good foods. Vegetables and fruits are highly recommended because they are jam-packed with essential nutrients and they usually don’t contain that many calories.
Those with diabetes also need to ingest lots of dairy foods because of their rich content of probiotics and calcium. Such foods include Greek yogurt, kefir, and low-fat milk.
Diabetes-friendly smoothies are a fun and delicious way of eating all these foods. You just need to keep it healthy and avoid the extra sweeteners.
