Three diabetes-friendly drinks to keep your summer cool

Summer is upon us, and with it comes great ways to beat the heat that are also diabetes-friendly! Here are three delicious and super-easy drinks that you can make, to give this summer a cool and healthy spin!

  1. Chocolate-Banana Shake

    The sweetness of chocolates and bananas combined! Blend two cups of fat-free milk, one sliced frozen banana and three tablespoons of unsweetened cocoa powder with two tablespoons of honey and a teaspoon of vanilla. This delightfully thick shake comes at just 23 grams of carbs!

  2. Berry Smoothie

    The goodness of berries, served in a tall glass! Grab a cup of frozen unsweetened raspberries, fresh blackberries or blueberries, a cup of fresh baby spinach leaves and a cup of pomegranate juice. Combine them with 2 cups of frozen unsweetened strawberries and 3 tablespoons of nonfat dry milk powder, and voila- your berry smoothie is ready

  3. Carrot-Mango Green Tea Smoothie

    Take healthy three ingredients forward! Add a cup of sliced carrots to 3 cups of boiling water. Cook for 10-15 minutes (throw in an inch of sliced ginger two minutes before you stop). Cut the heat and soak in 4 green tea teabags. Then, take out the teabags and ginger, and blend the cooled brew with 2 cups of frozen mangoes and a teaspoon of honey- triple flavour at just 17 grams of carbs!
