Apple and cinnamon smoothie – you can’t go wrong with this simple but tasty smoothie made with apples, cinnamon, coconut milk, walnuts and cinnamon.
I‘m sure we are all familiar with the old proverb “an apple a day keeps the doctor away”. This mantra is never a truer word for health conscious individuals and that is exactly the same sentiment with this apple and cinnamon smoothie recipe
Apples are sweet, tasty and loaded with an abundance of vitamin C – antioxidants which help to fight free radicals that cause damage to the cells.
Aside from their ability to tackle the nasties, that try to infiltrate our cells, apples are extremely filling and packed with fibre – assist with keeping blood sugar levels and bad cholesterol (low density lipoprotein is a good example) in moderation. Cinnamon works perfectly with this recipe as it too stablises blood sugar levels.
The insoluble fibre also regulates bowel movement, promoting healthy bowel activity and is particularly useful for anyone suffering from constipation.
** For this recipe I namely used frozen ingredients (apples, ice cubes) as I found this yields a thicker consistency**
** Suitable as a meal replacement**
