Peanut butter smoothies are a tasty and healthy way to consume essential vitamins and minerals. These smoothies are rich in protein, thanks to the addition of peanut butter, providing a creamy texture and energy boost without added sugar.

However, excess consumption may lead to hyperglycemia due to the presence of milk sugar and added sugars. Avoid using sweetened peanut butter to prevent the recipe from becoming too high in sugar and leading to a blood sugar spike.

Optimise Your Peanut Butter Smoothie to Make it More Healthy
• Try limiting your portion control to 100 ml.
• You may add a scoop of protein to lower glucose absorption.
• Consider adding alternate nut milk, such as almond milk (unsweetened).
• Avoid additives like sugar to stabilise the sugar spike.

Peanut butter smoothie has a high sugar component. Eating too much sugar can cause the body to produce too much insulin, leading to blood sugar levels becoming too high. It can cause various symptoms, including fatigue, headaches, blurred vision, increased thirst, and frequent urination. Optimise your peanut butter smoothie with a few moderations, and you are good to go.
