Cinnamon is my favorite thing to add to a smoothie. Not only delicious but it adds a subtle, spicy balance to the sweet fruit. I have three reasons as to why cinnamon is a good addition.
- Helps Control Blood Sugars: When paired with high-carb foods such as fruits it can actually counter-balance any spikes in blood sugar. As a result, your energy levels will remain stable and you won’t experience that post-meal crash.
- Boosts brain power
- Rich in antioxidants
I use cinnamon in a few of my other favorite smoothie recipes like Apple Peanut Butter Smoothie, Peanut Butter Banana Oatmeal Smoothie, and Gingerbread Cookie Smoothie.
Kale and Blueberries in smoothies
Kale is an amazing superfood and is regarded as a nutrition powerhouse. This leafy vegetable contains high amounts of vitamins A, K, and C along with numerous other benefits such as preventing heart disease, lowering cholesterol, and providing bone health.
Blueberries are packed with antioxidants and phytoflavinoids. Phytonutrients are not essential but may help reduce disease and cancer. Blueberries are also high in potassium and vitamin C, making them anti-inflammatory as well.
