1. Water.

Water is, no doubt, the number one health drink perfect for all people with or without diabetes. To give it a light and refreshing flavor, you can squeeze some fresh lime or lemon juice to your glass of water. Drink as many glasses of water daily. Do not settle with eight glasses of water a day.

2. Milk.

You can try low-fat milk if you began to be tired of water. It is a good source of vitamins and minerals. Just do not forget to control your portion size when consuming low-fat milk, otherwise the calories and carbohydrates will add up if you drink too much. Drink skim milk or 1% fat milk and see to it that you count it in your daily meal plan. A single cup of skim milk gives 12 grams of carbohydrates and about 80 calories.

3. Juice.

It does not mean that when you are diabetic, you cannot enjoy other nice drinks like juices. You absolutely can. But, you should see to it that it is 100% natural and with no added sugar. You have a lot of choices: all-natural pomegranate juice, pineapple juice, orange juice, coconut juice, and a whole lot more. In fact you can have any kind of juice as long as it is all-natural and sugar-free. Juice can give you a high level of carbohydrates in just a small portion, so be sure that you count it in your every-day meal plan. Normally, 4-6 ounces or approximately less than one cup contains about 50 calories and 15 grams of carbohydrates already. Another great alternative is low-sodium vegetable juice since in one cup it has 10 grams of carbohydrates and 50 calories.

Beverages You Should Avoid:

Naturally, you need to avoid sugary drinks like sweet tea, energy drinks, fruit drinks, soda, and other beverages with high concentration of sugar. Just a single serving of these types of beverages can increase your calorie and blood glucose level. In fact, a 12-ounce can of soda contains about 40 grams of carbohydrate and 150 calories. This is equivalent to 10 teaspoons of sugar. One cup of fruit drink can give you up to 100 calories and about 30 grams of carbohydrates.
