Smoothies are a great way to add in some fruits and veggies to your diet. They are fantastic post-workout. However, when you are diabetic, you have to be careful. Most smoothies have a lot of sugar and carbs.

A small Strawberries Wild from Jamba Juice has 63 carbs, 56 of which are sugar!

To make a diabetic friendly strawberry smoothie at home, you can eliminate most of the sugar and carbs.

In your blender combine:
1 cup lowfat yogurt like Yoplait Greek 100 Vanilla or Chobani Plain
1/4 cup skim milk
10 packets of Equal
1 160z bag of frozen, unsweetened strawberries
1 cup ice
