Reversing type 2 diabetes [easy to make shakes]

Sometimes it seems like the foods we have to eat will never be good for us, but in reality, there are good foods that can help us to lose weight and maybe even reverse our type 2 diabetes.

It is harder to find them, but today I shared in my video about what my granddaughter calls my “vomit drinks.” She calls them that because when I first started consuming them, I was using a lot of really nasty ingredients—well, they were nasty to me, anyway. Things like turmeric, curcumin, carrot juice, and ginger. These are a few of my unfavorite things!

After about a week of choking those nasty things down 3x a day, I started using more fruits like blueberries, strawberries, mango, pineapple, and the like. I started mixing those with almond milk, chia seeds, etc and it was a lot better.

We still refer to the shakes as “vomit” drinks, but they are a lot better than that. In fact, a lot of days I look forward to making them and eating them. As promised in the video, here is one of the recipes. I said in the video that it was a link, but I realized that I had never shared it before. So here are the basics. I use almond milk because I don’t care for the creamier cashew milk, but otherwise, you can add different fruits. Sometimes I even add baby spinach leaves or kale.

It really is up to you and what your tastes are.

• 1 cup unsweetened cashew milk (more creamy than almond milk or other plant milk)

• 25g frozen wild blueberries

• 25g frozen strawberries

• 4 ounces low fat Greek yogurt

• 1 tbsp chia seeds

I hope you enjoy the video.

  1. Vomit drinks, no! I do understand what you mean though 🙂 I’ve never tried cashew milk although I love eating cashew nuts as a snack. I like to try but am not sure if I can find them at our local stores. Probably I wasn’t paying attention to them. Anyway, thanks for sharing the recipe. If can’t get the cashew milk, I will go with what you had, almond milk.

    1. LOL, Sharon! Yeah, I agree, “vomit” drinks are disgusting, but they really are healthy. I just wouldn’t want to eat them all the time!

      I prefer almond milk over cashew milk. I don’t like my drinks to be frothy.

      I will be sharing a bunch more recipes I have found that are healthy but don’t taste bad!

      Here is a short video of my granddaughters NOT enjoying one of the “healthy” drinks.

      To our health,

  2. Hi Karin. Thank you for interesting article. I do have a feeling that we still not talk enough about diabetes and how to deal with it. Your recipe for healthy drinks looks really good and with adding some fruits it can be tasty part of daily diet. Looking forward to use your advices and test this shake in practice.

    1. Thank you for visiting our site, Cogito. I apologize for the delay in responding to your comment.

      We don’t talk enough about how to prevent type 2 diabetes, that is for sure. I believe it is totally preventable but people have to want to make the changes to their eating habits and exercise to make prevention possible. I watched my grandfather die from diabetic complications. First, he had to have dialysis. Then came the amputations, finally he said enough and quit taking dialysis. He died within a week. He didn’t want any more body parts cut off of him and his other leg was next.

      I see him in my mind and I don’t want to go down that way. Therefore, change is necessary! I will “preach” this until someone can prove me wrong!

      Thanks again for visiting our site! I hope you will stop in again soon.

      To our health,
      Karin 🙂
