*For BLENDTEC, we like to use the SOUP button which blends for 90 seconds, making for a finer consistency than when using the WHOLE JUICE button. Be sure to add lots of ice to both the Blendtec and Vitamix so as not to begin to heat the smoothie.
HEALTH BENEFITS OF CINNAMON
1 tbsp of cinnamon has the same amount of antioxidants as 1 cup of pomegranate juice, which has even more than red wine, green tea, blueberries, and asparagus. Antioxidants help keep us youthful, rejuvenated, & alive. Cinnamon is an extremely powerful blood cleanser, as it has some of the best anti-bacterial properties ever seen in such a common spice. In addition, new research results are showing the great benefits cinnamon has on the liver, which too is vital for cleansing the blood.
Cinnamon’s scent alone offers empowering effects in concentration /alertness / focus. In one study, researchers found that a loaf of bread that had significant amounts of cinnamon was far slower to mold (as in days) than non-cinnamon counterparts. Cinnamon is one of the most powerful spices in terms of health and is likely sitting in your pantry this very moment. Give your body the royal treatment by enjoying the protective, cleansing, and rejuvenating health benefits that cinnamon, the Queen of Spices, has to offer.
