Testing this pomegranate kiwi strawberry smoothie gave a blood sugar reading of 4.4 mmol/l (79 mg/dl). Great value for a silk smoothie.
Let me just say though that when having this smoothie, you might taste some finer bits of the pomegranate seeds. They are not really a bother unless you are a very picky eater. Don’t forget the phytonutritional value of pomegranates is all too alluring to go without. It didn’t bother me…hopefully it shouldn’t be a spot of bother for you too.
