Do you love indulging in a scoop of chocolate ice cream but worry about its impact on your blood sugar levels? Chocolate ice creams are often high in free sugars, which can quickly convert to glucose in the body and cause sudden spikes followed by crashes. This can increase glucose variability, harming prediabetics, diabetics, and anyone looking to maintain stable blood sugar levels.

Optimise your Chocolate Ice Cream Intake
• Opt for dark chocolate with a high cocoa content (70-80%), which is rich in antioxidants.
• When consuming, pair it with nuts and seeds to slow down the release of glucose into your bloodstream and prevent sudden spikes.
• Remember to control your portion sizes and savour each bite slowly. A good rule of thumb is to consume only 1/4th portion of what you would typically have.
• Homemade ice cream can also benefit from adding nuts and seeds to increase the fat content and slow down glucose release.

Now you can enjoy chocolate ice creams without compromising your glucose control. When it comes to chocolate ice cream, moderation is key! Try choosing dark chocolate varieties with nuts and seeds to enjoy the flavour and benefits without risking your health.
