Red and green holiday smoothies for Day 5 of the Type Happy Holiday Challenge! I woke up with my blood sugar at 70 mg/dL so I was in need of something to get me going this morning. Of course I wanted to make it festive to go with my winter holiday theme, so I naturally wanted to create something reflecting the Christmas colors. I even named them appropriate names. The Merry Berry Red smoothie consists of strawberries, blueberries, banana, and unsweetened vanilla almond milk. The Green Holly smoothie has banana, spinach, blueberries, unsweetened vanilla almond milk, and chia seeds. Add a scoop of protein for extra nutrition too! My blood sugars after the smoothie were at a good level of 97 mg/dL.
Try making one of these colors!
