About five years ago one of my family members was diagnosed with Type 2 Diabetes.  The doctor had mentioned that he should not drink milk.  This includes ice cream and many other milk products. The recent contest "Raw Food recipes"  inspired me to come up with a solution.  A diabetic can eat bananas,  however the doctor recommended green bananas.  We have a pecan tree in our yard and have plenty of pecans. This recipe is a Banana Pecan Smoothie.  

Step 1: Recipe

  • 1 green banana.
  • 1 Cup raw  pecan milk, or raw almond milk.
  • Sweeten according to taste ( using Agave Nectar.)
  • Several ice cubes from filtered water.
  • 2 Pecan halves.
The next time I make this I will cut up the banana and put it in the freezer until it is frozen.

Thanks for stopping by and have a great day! Sunshiine
Very tasty treat. I love it. <br> <br>The dcotor was wrong, BTW. Milk and sugar are no different than any other carbohydrate. If consumed moderately, they have no adverse effects in diabetics. <br> <br>Trust me, I'm a diabetologist who has diabetes. Get another face to face opinion.
I will check that out! My guy sure misses his cereal. Thanks for commenting. Have a super day!<br>Sunshiine
