If you’re following a clean eating diet, then you know how important it is to have protein for breakfast and after your workouts. I find that when I don’t eat protein first thing in the morning I end up snacking all day long.
This Cinnamon Burst Smoothie recipe is a delicious creamy blend of organic almond butter, banana and cinnamon with just the perfect amount of sweetness. The organic almond butter offers a combination of healthy fats and protein and the banana and dates offer the perfect amount of sweetness while the cinnamon packs a powerful punch of flavor.
Adding in the maca is completely optional. I enjoy it in the morning as it acts as a caffeine free energizer and since I am trying really hard not to drink any caffeine I really enjoy this. Enjoy!
