Green Bean Lemonade (Diabetes)

Green  Bean Lemonade 



1 large cucumber

1-2 cups fresh green beans

1/2 apple

1 lemon or lime, peeled

Optional: Add in a handful of leafy greens, like spinach, or a shake of cinnamon



Juice the cucumber, green beans, apple and lemon together.  If you really need more sweetness, add the other half of the apple.  Adding full fat coconut milk will also slow down the juice entering your blood stream as fast.  


Serve immediately.


This makes one small glass of juice or 8-10 ounces.

Green beans, a type of non-starchy vegetable, are low in calories and carbohydrates yet high in fiber. As Diabetes World states: “Their high fiber content slows the breakdown of carbohydrates into sugars in your bloodstream, assists your body’s insulin response to glucose, and helps you burn fat faster. They limit the spikes in glucose levels after meals”.


It also helps your pancreas.
