Cinnaberry-Rific Green Smoothie

Cinnaberry-Rific Green Smoothie from simplegreensmoothies.com

This yummy Cinnaberry-Rific Smoothie uses ingredients that have a low glycemic index, which is great if you’re watching your sugar intake. Cinnamon may even help lower blood glucose levels. Health benefits aside, I love this smoothie! It’s sweet with a little hint of cinnamon, and creamy from the almond milk. I totally dig it. Plus, it’s hard for me to resist any smoothie full of berries.

Berries are a popular smoothie ingredient because they pack a punch in the flavor and antioxidant department. I like use a mix of frozen berries which I buy in bulk specifically for smoothies. Any berry will work hereβ€” use your favorite! You may notice that this smoothie isn’t green – gasp! Yep. Berries will definitely take your green smoothies from a vibrant green to many shades of brown. But don’t worry, you’ll still be enjoying all the benefits of those leafy greens!

We use chard in this Cinnaberry-Rific Green Smoothie. It’s important to rotate your greens every so often when you’re blending frequently. Chard, also called Silver Beet, has many health properties and a mild flavor. If you can’t find chard (or you just don’t care for it), spinach is a great substitute.

Happy blending, friends!

    Which almonds would be the best to buy? There is an article out now saying even blanched almonds are sprayed with chemicals, particularly “Kirkland” brand from Costco. Please advise.

    My boyfriend LOVES green smoothies and askes me every morning where his smoothie is. So it actually encourages me to stick with it and have one every morning, so I don’t mind if he nags me a little bit for a green smoothie. πŸ™‚

    Hi Retta,

    That’s awesome! He sounds like a great support + partner in reaching your health goals! It took my husband some convincing to enjoy green smoothies, before we started dating he considered any leafy green rabbit food.

    He sounds like he doesn’t need any convincing, but here is our blog post on why men should drink green smoothies…

    I was about to make the chocolate covered cherry smoothie for like… the 3rd day in a row (having major cravings) when I thought to myself “I really should try something else. I need to use these blueberries and strawberries I have.” WOW! This is so delicious! I added a little more cinnamon because I am using dandelion greens.
