Plums have been in season here.
So, this morning I made Plum Smoothies for breakfast.
Low-carb, Sugar-free, Diabetic-friendly
Nutrient- and protein-rich, this smoothie is packed with flavor.
Made with sweetly ripened plums and Greek yogurt, this breakfast provides a powerhouse of nutrients and enough protein to keep you satisfied for hours. Plums are high in fiber and antioxidants, as well as an excellent source of many vitamins and minerals.
Try some of this delicious goodness:
For one serving*:
2 ripe plums
1/2 cup skim or almond milk
1/2 cup low-fat or 2% Greek yogurt
2 ice cubes
1/8 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp Just Like Sugar *(or your preferred sweetener)
Remove pits and cut plums into quarters.
Place all ingredients into a blender. Select “Crush Ice” for a moment, then puree until smooth.
Pour smoothie into a glass. Garnish with a slice of plum and mint leaves if you like.
- *You can easily double the recipe. The blender will hold two servings. If you need more, make two batches.
- **Just Like Sugar is a natural sugar, the healthiest sweetener you could use. It is plant-based, made from Chicory Root and is low on the glycemic index. Just Like Sugar does not spike blood glucose and does not have the unhealthy attributes of artificial sweeteners.
- The recipe will work fine if you use other sweeteners as well (Splenda or Stevia).
