4 Must-Try Juice Recipes for Diabetics

Diabetes shouldn’t hold you back from the power of fresh juice. That’s why today we’re sharing our favorite diabetic juice recipes! 

Since common juices include high amounts of fruit – which contain sugar – they’re not ideal for someone with diabetes who needs to maintain steady blood glucose levels. As a result, diabetics should  stay away from fruit juices with a high glycemic index or high sugar content.

Fresh veggies, on the other hand, tend to have a low glycemic index. This means that fresh veggie juices are perfect for those with type 1 and type 2 diabetes. 

We always recommend consulting with your doctor and keeping a close eye on your blood sugar levels when changing your diet. If you’re clear to start juicing, you’re in for a bunch of amazing benefits. Juicing makes it easy to increase your daily vitamin intake and improve your overall health.

Before diving in to the recipes, let’s talk about the “no-go” fruits.
