    I have always loved having a smoothie for breakfast, it is easy to take on my commute to work. I have stopped because I read those with PCOS should avoid smoothies because the process of blending breaks down the sugars. When ingested sugar levels spike rapidly instead of slowly absorbing when they are in there whole state. Is this true?

    Hi Stephanie, It really depends on what you put in your smoothie that will impact your sugar levels. For example, having skim milk and fruit will definitely spike it. Adding fat and protein like peanut butter and protein powder will lower the glycemic index and thus the rise in blood sugar. Hope that makes sense!
