This recipe includes a touch of cinnamon, but it’s more than a tasty spice. Cinnamon is high in antioxidants, specifically polyphenols, which have been studied for their ability to improve digestion, brain health, and even protect against heart disease. Polyphenols can also be found in other foods like cacao, berries, beans, and nuts. All the good stuff.
Smoothies are notorious for being high in fiber but, this recipe packs in even more thanks to one ingredient: pears. Pears are a great source of fiber with roughly 6g per piece of fruit.
Fiber is important for maintaining bowel health and “keeping things moving” if you know what we mean. It also helps you to feel full and satiated for longer so there’s no need to worry about a mid-morning snack after this nutrient-packed breakfast shake.
