When you only have a couple of minutes to spare before rushing out of the front door, smoothies will always come to your breakfast rescue. They are quick, effortless, versatile, and can easily fit within your keto macros if you use the right ingredients.
The key to creating the perfect breakfast smoothie that will sustain you all morning long is adding the proper ratio of protein, healthy fats, and fiber. In this smoothie, we’re doing just that and also adding a health-boosting spice: cinnamon.
The main ingredients in this smoothie include:
- Perfect Keto Collagen Powder
- Cold brewed coffee
- Ceylon cinnamon
- Chia seeds
To many people, cinnamon may seem like an everyday seasoning for recipes, but this spice actually provides a wide array of health benefits — in fact, it has been used for its medicinal properties in different cultures.
3 Benefits of Cinnamon
#1: Protects Your Cells From Damage
Cinnamon is packed with antioxidants, including polyphenols, phenolic acid, and flavonoids. These unique compounds help fight diseases, reduce free radical damage, slow down the aging process, and protect your brain function.
#2: Fights Diabetes
This sweet and warming spice has anti-diabetic effects. Studies have shown cinnamon can help lower blood sugar and improve insulin sensitivity by blocking enzymes that usually allow glucose to be quickly released in your bloodstream.
#3: Heart Healthy
Cinnamon can help protect your heart by reducing total cholesterol, “bad” cholesterol
(LDL), and triglycerides. The special compounds in this spice can also increase blood circulation and help with tissue repair.
When you combine cinnamon with MCTs, collagen, and the fiber from the chia seeds in this decadent smoothie, you’ll feel satiated and energized to crush your morning.
