I'm sorry, I don't have any suggestions for you. I'm diabetic too and have to be very careful with what I have. When I found out that my diabetes was getting worse I cut out all the sugar I could. I only drink water. I do have milk on my cereal but no sweet tea, soda, kool-aid or anything else. I get tired of water too but I deal with it. Good luck finding what you want. AT PEACE WITHIN
