Strawberry pineapple smoothie

smoothie3

For a long time, I was under the impression that you cannot have most of the fruits if you have diabetes. So I was surprised to see many fruit based smoothie recipes for diabetes. A bit of digging in the net tells me that it’s about choosing your portions wisely and you don’t have to avoid fruits on the whole.

It was news for me. But as I am not diabetic, I wouldn’t preach much about the topic. I would rather trust my doctor than the internet on matters of health. This is a good after workout smoothie. After an hour of sweating in the gym, you really would have earned this. A full cup if you are not diabetic, half a cup if you are.

Shhh…..I drank mine without working out :D, but that’s a secret between you, me and the Internet- OK?

    Awesome looking smoothie Rajani. Recently I learnt from a doctor cousin that most of the fruits are safe for diabetics but they need to eat them in moderation and never on full stomach.
