For diabetics, drinks can be one of the trickiest things because there are an unknowing amount of sugars and carbs. That is why I wanted to create a drink that would be both delicious and diabetic friendly. We all need to have good drinks that are low enough in sugars that both diabetics and non-diabetics can enjoy.
