This Chocolate Cinnamon Protein Smoothie adds a tsp of cinnamon to a plain Chocolate Protein Smoothie for a dash of added health benefits!
Cinnamon is made from the inner bark of trees called Cinnamomum and comes in two varieties – ceylon cinnamon, and the more common cassia cinnamon. Cinnamon is made by cutting the stems of the cinnamomum tree, extracting the inner bark and removing wood parts. When it dries, it forms strips that curl into rolls (cinnamon sticks) and that can be ground to form cinnamon powder.
Some of the health benefits of cinnamon include:
- source of antioxidants (more than garlic or oregano)
- anti-inflammatory properties
- promotes heart health
- lowers blood sugar
- helps fight diabetes
- protects brain function
- may help lower cancer risk
- fights infections & viruses
- protects dental health
Add to that the health benefits you get from Boomer Nutrition ENERGY Chocolate Whey Protein Powder which include a healthy dose of B Vitamins for energy and added leucine for muscle preservation (an important part of slowing age-related muscle loss).
This Chocolate Cinnamon Protein Smoothie can also be made with our NEW Organic Vegan Boomer Nutrition Chocolate Protein Powder and Chocolate Almond milk for a vegan option.
