Smoothies are an easy, cool, no-cook option, but many juice-bar smoothies are big calorie and carbohydrate bombs, which can be a problem for people with diabetes. That’s why we asked Jackie Mills, MS, RD, author of 1,000 Diabetes Recipes, The Big Book of Diabetic Desserts, and other cookbooks, to develop these seven weight loss smoothie recipes for us.

“The portion sizes of these drinks are smaller than you’ll get at your neighborhood smoothie shop, but they easily fit into a diabetic meal plan as part of a healthy breakfast or a revitalizing snack,” Mills says.

These weight loss smoothies also take advantage of seasonal produce — along with Greek yogurt, nut butters, tofu, or even cottage cheese — to add some protein, which helps your body digest them more slowly. This, in turn, is good for your blood sugar and keeps you satisfied.

Blueberry-Almond Weight Loss Smoothie

Packed with protein from yogurt, almonds, and milk, plus fiber from blueberries and wheat germ, this is a satisfying weight loss smoothie. 

1-1/2 cups fresh blueberries
1/2 cup plain fat-free Greek yogurt
1/4 cup slivered almonds
2 tablespoons wheat germ
Two tablespoons unsweetened almond milk or skim milk
2 teaspoons honey
1 cup of ice cubes

Combine all ingredients in a blender. Purée until smooth.
