Smoothies are truly universal. They can be your breakfast and lunch and can even substitute your entire dinner. In other words, depending on the ingredients your smoothie is made of, it can replace any of your daily meals.

Smoothies can be extremely healthy. They can provide you a great way of getting all the vitamins and minerals that fruits and vegetables have to offer, but not all ingredients are good for you, especially if you have diabetes.

You really have to be smart about what goes into your smoothies as some fruits and vegetables are more beneficial for your health than others. To avoid unwanted blood sugar spikes, make sure your smoothie ingredients have low glycemic index. To maximize the nutritional value of your smoothies, the ingredients you chose have to provide a balanced combination of protein, fiber, and fat. So next time you decide to treat yourself to a delicious healthy beverage, make sure to include some of the following produce: avocado, spinach, red beets, carrots, celery, cucumber, squash, zucchini, cauliflower, nuts, chia seeds, hemp seeds, ground flaxseed, yogurt, kefir, apples, blueberries, bananas, mangoes, oranges, pineapples, peaches, kiwis, raspberries, grapes, blackberries, pears, and strawberries.

Here are some of our favorite smoothie recipes for your enjoyment:
