A sweet smoothie for people with diabetes

Are you craving something sweet? If you’re stay away from all unhealthy foods that will just spike your blood sugar. When you have diabetes, it’s bad enough when you eat healthy and your blood sugar is still high. Ask any individual that has Type 1 diabetes and they know exactly what I’m talking about.

If you would like a sweet smoothie that will not spike your blood sugar you should try adding cacao nibs. Divine Organics Cacao Nibs are mechanically split whole beans. To benefit fully from chocolate’s nutrients, always eat chocolate that is as close to its natural state as possible. Sorry, that milk chocolate candy bar does not count. Theobroma Cacao is rich in essential minerals, including magnesium, sulfur, calcium, iron, zinc, copper, potassium and manganese. In addition, Divine Organics Cacao Nibs are vegan, gluten-free, dairy-free, GMO-free and USDA Organic. If you have any food allergies, please check the allergen information listed on the actual food package. Also, Divine Organics Cacao Nibs are available from Transition Nutrition.

Since zinc is involved in the actual synthesis, storage and release of insulin it is vital that you have adequate amounts of this mineral. Did you know that zinc deficiency is associated with insulin resistance and obesity? Yes, and now scientists even believe a zinc deficiency is linked to serious infections and cancers. Zinc is the mineral that can assist you with a healthier immune system, faster wound healing, and lower blood sugar levels.

Here’s the “Sweet Smoothie” recipe ~

In a blender add 2 cups of unsweetened vanilla almond milk, ½ cup of coffee, a handful of Divine Organic Cacao Nibs, and 1 frozen banana. Blend until thick and creamy and serve. Enjoy!

In a blink you can get your zinc by drinking a “Sweet Smoothie!”
