Default Diabetic friendly fruit smoothies

I am looking for recipes or ideas on some diabetic friendly (low carb) fruit smoothie drinks or other healthy blended drinks. I would want to use these drinks for a snack or as part of a breakfast. Thank you for any ideas or suggestions.

Okay, the coffee smoothies, I will be trying for sure especially on one of those hot mornings when a hot coffee doesn't fit the job. We haven't had instant coffee in the house for years. Maybe some really thick perked will suffice instead. Worth a try. They look Good for an occasional quick pick-me-up/meal. I always check to see what new foods/beverages do to my blood sugar also. Thanks John.
