Fruit, milk and even yoghurt (who knew?) count as carbs when you have gestational diabetes, but not all carbs are created equal, and the nuts are somewhat balancing. If you drink it with a protein-rich cooked breakfast, you're all set. It'll certainly go further than a sugary breakfast cereal with a glass of sweetened juice, and it makes a worthwhile snack at any time of day.

1 orange
1 banana
150ml milk
150g plain natural or greek-style yoghurt
25g walnut bits
1tsp clear honey

Blend. Drink.

Tip: make it before bedtime, and get your husband to bring it to you in bed the next morning along with your injection.
