Diabetic Drink Recipes, Indian Diabetic Drinks. Chilled juices and drinks are a welcome addition for most of us! But diabetics are usually advised not to include sugary, fat laden drinks as well as canned juice in their diet. This is just for the reason that most drinks and juices turn out to be a concentrated source of energy and carbs which may cause alteration in blood sugar levels. This isn’t a good sign for diabetes.

Plus, being a good source of potassium , Karela Juice is beneficial for those with high blood pressure too.

Vegetables are a must for diabetes – this is a known fact. The fiber in them aids in controlling blood sugar levels. Of course, the starchy ones need to be avoided. Veggies are used in many ways to make sumptuous traditional subzis, but here we have used some of them to whip up quick nutritious drinks. Minty Cucumber Cooler is one such example. Water-filled and low glycemic index cucumber has been paired with low-fat curd and perked up with mint to make this delicately flavoured drink.

Neem Juice for Diabetes

Chewing on neem leaves as well Neem Juice both can help control the elevated blood sugar levels which is the topmost goal of diabetes. The flavonoids in the Neem Juice bags the credit for this effect. This Neem juice should be consumed after consulting your doctor and depending on the dosage of medicine. Excess of Neem Juice may cause a reverse effect viz. hypoglycemia (low blood sugar levels) in some cases. So include it in small amounts twice a week and check for side effects if any. If it doesn’t suit, discontinue it.
