The Eyes Have It - Smoothies For The Eyes

I came across a recipe for a smoothie that has benefits for the eyes. Again I have a Vita Mixer and would not trade it for anything on the market, however you can use a high speed blender for this one.

  • 1 Banana
  • 1 cup frozen or fresh blueberries (they are expensive now as the season is over, so go ahead and use frozen if you wish)
  • 1 handful green grapes
  • 1 small fennel / greens and bulb
  • 1 handful spinach
  • Water and ice to blend
Both the banana and the blueberries have nutrients for your retina and protection from glaucoma. Grapes and spinach can help prevent macular degeneration. Fennel was used by the Romans and believed to help night vision, and prevent cataracts.

As diabetics we need to be taking in nutrients each and every day to help protect our eyes. See my PREVIOUS POST on lutein, bilberry, asaxanthin and pycnogenol for eye health. Visit your local health food store, or try Swanson or Puritan Pride to obtain these supplements.


James 1:5
If any of you lacks wisdom, he should ask God, who gives generously to all without finding fault, and it will be given to him.

Galatians 6:9
Let us not become weary in doing good, for at the proper time we will reap a harvest if we do not give up.
