Blood Sugar Balancing Smoothie

Updated: Sep 27, 2022

This smoothie contains 7 superfoods that have individually been studied and proven to regulate blood sugar. I recommend this smoothie in the morning before your breakfast which will allow all of the nutrients to streamline throughout your body before crowding it with foods that are harder to digest. However, feel free to enjoy this smoothie as a snack between lunch and dinner for midday blood sugar balancing.

Blood Sugar Balancing Superfoods:

  1. Nut Butter: A study showed that diets emphasizing the consumption of tree nuts at an average of 2 oz a day significantly reduced fasting blood sugar and hemoglobin A1c.

  2. Flax Seeds/Meal: This powerful seed is packed with fiber which not improves gut health, but helps get things moving in our digestive system which aids in the detoxification process. Coupled with their healthy fat content, studies have shown that consumption of just 1oz a day of flax significantly reduced hemoglobin A1c and improved blood sugar control.

  3. Chia Seeds: Studies have shown that 1 oz a day of chia seeds improves insulin sensitivity and blood sugar control. They are also packing with soluble fiber and omega-3 fatty acid chains.

  4. Kale: Packed with compounds that help control blood sugar levels with their diverse nutrient profile. Kale contains fiber and the flavonoid antioxidants that have been shown to decrease post-meal blood sugar levels. Two flavonoids quercetin and kaempferol have potent blood-sugar lowering properties.

  5. Blueberries: Berry intake has been proven to improve blood sugar control. Berries are jam packed with vital nutrients. Fiber, vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants. All of these work in tandem to balance blood sugar and cleanse the body.

  6. Avocado: Another superfood, avocados are amongst the most nutrient dense fruits in the world. With healthy fats, fiber, vitamins, and minerals avocados have been proven to improve blood sugar levels. Studies show they protect against the development of most metabolic syndromes.

  7. Oats: Oats are another food packed with soluble fiber. 16 studies have proven that oat intake reduced hemoglobin A1c and fasting blood sugar levels.

 

Recipe

Ingredients:

  1. Combine all of the ingredients in a high-speed blender. Blend until consistency is smooth. Add more liquid if it is too thick, or less if you want it thicker. Serve and enjoy.

 

For those suffering with prediabetes, diabetes, or other metabolic syndromes that affect blood sugar, diet is at the cornerstone of healing your body naturally and maintaining healthy blood sugar levels.

Following a healthy diet rich in fruits and vegetables when you are fighting a chronic disease is one way you can support your body's natural processes and sustain long-term health results.

For pre, or current diabetics, weight loss is recommended in order to relieve strain on your filtration systems and allow your body to rid toxins more efficiently.

This goal can be easily achieved by removing foods with added sugars, refined carbs, and other additives.

Switching to a plant-based, whole foods, diet can be the lifestyle you adopt that will not only contribute to feeling better, but looking better as well.
