My Favorite Breakfast Smoothie

When you are a diabetic, you start every morning with the best intentions and for the most part I succeed.  My routine calls for testing my blood sugar first thing and since the downfall with my control is my morning fasting numbers, (too high because of how my pancreas processes glucose when I wake up) I try to wait a bit before I eat to let things even out with my meds.

This smoothie is just the thing after I have a cup of coffee and want something to get me through the morning.  It has limited carb servings (3-4), protein to balance the carbs, is adaptable for flavor variety and most important, quick and delicious.

I always have the ingredients in my pantry and fridge and keep a variety of frozen fruit on hand.  When I have a too ripe banana, I slice it into 2 servings, place in a baggie and freeze.  I use a Magic Bullet and all the parts can go in the dishwasher.  Today a Mango Smoothie - tomorrow I might change to to blueberry.  Sometimes I add spinach for added health benefits.

 Endless flavor possibilities.

  1. That sounds yummy! I cannot have dairy so i use coconut milk or almond milk and i include ground flax seed and chia seeds for extra fiber and protein. I love smoothies.

  2. Well that sounds delicious and I love the presentation:) Enjoy your day dear friend, I am on my 2nd cup of coffee and then I will get my day started. HUGS!

    1. Hope your beach trip was good and you found it’s not all doom and gloom in FL. Most being smart and lots of space, fresh air and sunshine on the beach.
