  1. As a type 2 diabetic I am always looking for ways to lower and manage glucose and blood pressure. I clearly was not getting enough greens in my diet. I got sidetracked for awhile, picked up some old bad eating habits and was “rewarded with high glucose and high blood pressure. My A1c soared to 8.2 and BP to 160/90. I felt like I was out of control.

    I decided that at 68 I was limiting my years on earth with my family and that was enough motivation for me to take matters into hand. I had heard about green smoothies and their beneficial effects on diabetes so I found this “Incredible Smoothies “diabetic friendly smoothie website” and began trying out the various recipes.

    I’ve tried most of them and they are all winners in terms of taste. the one I find as my favorite is Joann’s Green Smoothie to which I also add celery and kale as well as a few ice cubes. I use a Ninja Blender/food processor get about 32 oz of milkshake thick, smoothie from this and it is beyond delicious. In fact due to it’s wonderful taste I found myself wondering if this would help me. “How could anything this delicious be good for me?” Most things that taste really good are generally bad for you or at least that’s what I thought.

    These smoothies coupled with a low calorie healthy diet have in one short month brought all my levels back to normal and my glucose average is103 blood pressure average 120/71 (I take readings on both three times daily. My recent blood work from my doctor showed an A1c of 6.9.

    Thank you for this website. It is a life changer for me. I encourage my fellow diabetics and normally healthy people as well to try these drinks. I am a true believer in the benefits of green smoothies.
