Smoothies

Tim’s diet is being changed yet again. His having high blood pressure and type 2 diabetes and high cholesterol it makes meal planning a real challenge here lately. Tim has a sweet tooth that is hard to tame but this is one recipe that I came up with that is healthy and sweet but doesn’t effect his diet to much as I can do exchanges in other areas of his diet.
