Fact: cinnamon lowers blood glucose levels, lowers cholesterol, is anti-inflammatory, improves brain funtion and memory

Ingredients (+/- 850ml smoothie):

  • +/- 400ml almond milk
  • 2 tbsp chia seeds
  • 1 tbsp cinnamon
  • 1 tbsp turmeric
  • 2 tbsp peanut butter
  • 2 bananas (optional: frozen)
  • optional: 2 tbsp maca powder

Preparation:

  1. Make sure you have a good blender to make smoothies, you don’t want to chew on pieces of food that didn’t mix. I use NutriBullet to make smoothies.
  2. Put all the ingredients in your blender, I put everything together at the same time and blend until smooth and runny.
  3. If your smoothie is too thick, add more milk, but make sure you don’t cross the maximum on your blender.
