Incredibly smoothly recipe Pat! Thanks so much.. this is actually my first time having a peach smoothly and it was fantastic. It's hard to eat right with diabetes, but when you have tasty recipes to choose from it makes things so much easier!!! 12 years ago when I was diagnosed with diabetes I didn't know how much of an impact it would have on my life... I'd pay over $5000/year in supply costs.. I was worried sick my children may not develop normally, I'd always be worrying about the possible future complications.. I'd find it hard to stay motivated to continue treatment. My friend told me about a Doctor she saw on Oprah.. she said the Doctor created a program on how to reverse diabetes, I found it at http://goawaydiabetes.org I'm frickin tired of worrying about syringes, pens, lancets, pump sets, blood work, IV's so I've been giving it a try... Results so far: My fasting blood sugars were 230-250 range, three weeks after following the program I'm in the 120s.. I'm hoping to get into the 70s and stay there for good. Everything is coming into normal ranges but I think I'll always be diabetic for life. If I don't follow the protocol I'll go back to my old numbers right? Has anyone else tried the program? If so how did it work for you I'd really like to hear.. Thanks so much!
I replaced the soy milk with coconut milk, reduced the banana to 1/2 of one and added a pinch of freshly ground nutmeg and a little bit of vanilla paste. This was a good use of too many peaches and too many bananas! Made for the Beverage Tag.
Thank you for sharing your recipe Im Pat, I enjoyed it very much. I used 1 banana, 1 peach and some almond milk (what I had in the house) it was very tasty. I did find the cinnamon to be a little strong. Next time I would personally leave it out. Made for Beverage Anyone Tag Game.
