Fruit is known as "nature's sugar" - it's healthy, sweet and delicious - but it's also a simple sugar.
Since many fruits metabolize quickly, they cause blood sugar levels to spike (some more than others).
So it's best to pair fruit with complex carbs and protein - to lessen the impact on your metabolism and blood sugar levels.
So be sure to pair your fruit with our delicious diabetic friendly fruit dip...talk about a sweet way to enjoy nature's finest.
-8 oz fat free cream cheese, softened
-6 oz sugar free low fat vanilla yogurt
-1 tsp vanilla extract
-1 packet Vanilla Extend Shake mix
In a med/large mixing bowl, beat cream cheese on medium speed using an electric mixer.
Gradually add in the remaining ingredients, and continue beating until light and fluffy (or desired consistency).
Pick your favorite fruits from the colors of the rainbow, and slide bite size pieces onto a wooden skewer.
TIP: Go for low glycemic fruits to make your fruit tray even gentler on blood sugar levels.
