A beverage is any type of drink. It’s something you might offer a guest in your house; it’s also the favorite moniker of companies that manufacture both soda and juice—they call themselves beverage companies.

Without doubt, the best beverage for a diabetic is pure water! However, we do have recipes for other beverages.

Here is a Nutrition Information chart for Beverages:

Creamer

The best coffee creamer, in my opinion and experience, is pure, unsweetened heavy cream, ideally, with NO additives like carrageenan or guar gum.

“HEALTHIFIED” PUMPKIN PIE CREAMER

  • 1 vanilla bean (OR 1 T. pure vanilla extract)
  • 1 c. unsweetened almond milk (or coconut milk)
  • ½ c. pumpkin puree (not pumpkin filling)
  • 2 T. Swerve (or 1 drop stevia glycerite) to desired sweetness
  • ½ t. pumpkin pie spice
  • ½ t. cinnamon

Cut and split open the vanilla bean (if using). Heat almond milk, pumpkin, natural sweetener and vanilla bean over medium heat until bubbling vanilla beans are extracted from pod. Remove from heat. Wisk in spices until well blended. Makes 12 servings.
