How to Make A Green Smoothie That Won’t Raise Your Blood Sugar

Smoothies are a HUGE part of my day.

A good smoothie to me always includes a fresh avocado to make it creamy. If you don’t like avocado, skip it.

You can add

  • 1/2 avocado
  • 2 Tbs Almond butter
  • Add fresh or frozen berries (strawberries, blueberries, etc.) and dark green leafy greens.
  • In the beginning if your taste buds need more sweet, you can add SweetLeaf Liquid Stevia or even 1/2 banana.
  • To use Liquid Stevia, start with a few drops, taste and adjust.
  • Add 1/2 – 1 cup Native Forest whole coconut milk
  • 1 cup + of pure water.
  • I add 1 tsp Nutrex Hawaiian Spirulina powder per serving because it is pure, raw, and powerful. Buy only spirulina from Hawaii to avoid heavy metal contamination from junk spirulina coming out of Asia and other places.

This smoothie will give you energy, antioxidants and nutrients galore!

For protein, I add quality collagen from grass-fed cattle, collagen powder.

Other great mix-ins

If you have a powerful blender, like the VitaMix, then you can add any other vegetables that you like. I usually add carrot, celery, and cucumber.
