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 β€œfuel,” 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!

Fat Burning Chocolate Smoothie

Yes, I just said fat burning and chocolate in the same sentence πŸ™‚

In fact, this smoothie isn’t just gonna help you become a more efficient fat burner, it will even give you more energy, mental clarity and focus. Who doesn’t need that?

As a women-preneur who spends much of her time writing and creating (and easily distracted by shiny objects!), I always need help in the focus department. 

Enter this smoothie. It’s become my new go-to for fueling my mornings, turning my brain on and helping me become more efficient at burning fat.

How can a smoothie do all of that you ask?

Well, that’s thanks to the superfood ingredients! 

Let’s take a look at what’s in this delicious concoction:

First up coconut milk – (the high fat kind FYI) contains beneficial fat called lauric acid, a medium-chain fatty acid that’s easily absorbed and used by the body for energy. This fat is good for you! In fact, it can help lower cholesterol levels and improve blood pressure. 

Secondly we’ve got collagen powder. From skin health, to protecting your joints, to fueling your muscles, boosting metabolism, and supporting leaky gut, what does collagen NOT do! (Oh, I should also mention that it’s great for cellulite too!). Brands I personally like are Great Lakes or Bulletproof. 

Third up we’ve got some sunflower lecithin which is super rich in choline. Choline is amazing for liver detoxification, helps with normal brain development, supports nerve function, energy levels and helps in maintaining a healthy metabolism. I order my sunflower lecithin from this site here. 

Fourth on the superfood ingredient list is cacao powder. Cacao is the raw unprocessed form of chocolate. Like, it’s the real stuff. It’s loaded with magnesium which an important mineral for detoxification and hormonal health. Brands I like are Navitas Naturals, Organic Traditions or Giddy YoYo. 

Fifth up are exogenous ketones. This is where the real fat burning happens. Ketones are essentially an alternative fuel source for the body (vs. glucose) that leaves you feeling energized and focused. Most of us are sugar burners (mainly because we eat too much sugar), whereas taking exogenous ketones helps you become more efficient at being a fat burner vs. a sugar burner. 

When you take exogenous ketones, you now have ketones available in your blood, which means you have fat available as a fuel source vs. glucose (ie. sugar!). 

So what the heck is a ketone you ask? When eating a low carbohydrate diet, the liver converts fatty acids to ketones, which serve as an alternative to glucose for energy for the brain, heart and muscle. Cool right?

Ketogenic diets were developed to help improve symptoms of epilepsy, but were also found to help with many other chronic health problems, like inflammation and alzheimers. 

Weight loss is a huge benefit of ketogenic diets due to lowered insulin levels and the body’s ability to burn stored fat. This is why my clients do incredibly well losing weight on my metabolic program. It is not a ketogenic diet, but it is a lower carb diet, helping my clients to become more efficient at burning fat.

Research is even showing that a ketogenic diet can help prevent and even kill cancer cells.

So let’s get to this delicious, fat burning, energizing smoothie! Hope you enjoy it as much as I do. 

And if you’re looking to get your hands on some exogenous ketones, send me an email at – samantha@holisticwellness.ca 

P.S. For anyone that wants to purchase ketones and give them a try, I will personally send you my 21-Day Clean, Lean and Green program. This incredible meal plan is loaded with over 30+ recipes, 3 weeks of meal plans and a complete grocery shopping list.
