Just in time for the summer heat – a simple fruit smoothie recipe

June 13, 2013

Once again my good friend Nancy Heinrich, the Healthy Diabetes Coach, has come to the rescue with a timely recipe. Perfect for the season! Check out the easy prep for a tasty and nutritious fruit smoothie. INGREDIENTS:

  • 1 cup frozen fruit (such as bananas, blueberries, peaches, strawberries—I like to
  • use a combination of 2 fruits)
  • 4-5 ice cubes
  • 1 cup milk (almond or rice)
  • Dash of cinnamon
  • 2 scoops protein powder (I use Visalys as an energy booster)

DIRECTIONS:  (it does not get any easier) Blend and serve. Serves 1.

NOTES FROM NANCY: This makes a great breakfast along with a slice of toast* with almond butter. A fruit smoothie also makes a great afternoon pick-me-up. Using frozen fruit makes it taste just like a milkshake!

Up to ½ teaspoon a day of cinnamon can lower blood pressure AND lower LDL cholesterol (the “bad” cholesterol).
