Very few people eat enough green vegetables, so fit them into almost any fruit smoothie, and although the color may not always be the most appealing, the taste is amazing.

Blood Sugar Balancing Smoothie

Blood Sugar Balancing Smoothie Recipe

Protein keeps blood sugar steady by slowing down digestion and absorption of sugar. This blood sugar balancing effect makes you feel satisfied longer, while a high carbohydrate meal or snack can cause a rapid rise in blood sugar and then a reactionary drop later. When blood sugar drops, you crave carbohydrates again. So break this cycle by drinking this blood sugar balancing smoothie. Cinnamon may contribute to lower fasting blood sugar, lower cholesterol levels, and it also may prevent inflammation. Spinach and carrots are very low in carbohydrates and add a negligible amount of natural sugar to this smoothie recipe.
