Fat Burning Cinnamon Cookie Smoothie

With the overwhelming response from my Fat Burning Chocolate Smoothie, I figured I had to create another delicious concoction to get your taste buds excited. 

Well, I gotta admit… I think this recipe is gonna add a skip to your step, a big smile to your face and light some serious energy under your a$$! 

If there’s one thing you know about me, you know I like FLAVOUR! I like things to be sweet (although, NOT loaded with sugar), I like things to taste damn good, I like foods to be insanely delicious and I want my meals and smoothies to be something I actually look forward to eating. 

Many times I whip together smoothies or juices and blend together some pretty interesting ingredients just because I know they’re good for me and in a rush, I chug it down. But let’s face it, that’s not very enticing and not something I want to do everyday with my smoothies or meals in general. 

Spirulina with water (gross!), wheat grass (need I say more), BCAAs with apple cider vinegar (UGH! It’s gross. Never do that concoction! Like never!). I like to try all kinds of superfoods and supplements and more than anything, I like to get creative making something that doesn’t taste so good, taste amazing! 

Cuz let’s face it, if it tastes good AND it’s good for you, theres a good chance you’ll end up eating it more. Am I riiiight?

This Cinnamon Cookie Smoothie is dee-lish. And best part is, there is zero sugar. It is literally a fat burning bomb of creaminess that literally taste like you’re eating a cookie. 

This is an amazing smoothie to start your day with as it’s loaded with protein and fat – two macronutrients that will fuel your metabolism, boost your energy and keep you satiated all morning so you can ditch the sugar-loaded bagel on your way to work. There is NO need for bagels people; no need! 

There is one amazing ingredient in this smoothie that truly gives it a fat burning boost; and that’s the Keto Kreme. 

Keto Kreme contains powdered MCT oil, ceylon cinnamon (amazing for controlling blood sugar) and it’s sweetened with a bit of stevia. What’s so good about Keto Kreme? It’s the MCT – a medium train triglyceride that is used as a fuel source in your body.

“Medium-chain fats are digested easily and sent directly to your liver, where they have a thermogenic effect and the ability to positively alter your metabolism. This is one reason why many people claim that MCTs, including coconut oil, are burned by the body for energy, or “fuel,” instead of being stored as fat.” – Dr. Josh Axe

But MCT’s don’t just help with fat burning. They are also incredible for supporting the brain, increasing energy, balancing hormones, improving mood and are great for fighting bacteria and viruses in the body. 

I suggest you try this smoothie without adding ANY fruit to it. If you find you need that little bit of sweetness (remember, you will get some sweetness from the stevia in the Keto Kreme), then go ahead and add in 1/4 of a frozen banana or 1 date. 

Additionally, you can also swap out the vanilla protein powder for chocolate and you can add in extra spices such as nutmeg or ginger. 

So, let’s get this recipe! Hope you enjoy it as much as I do!
