KOURTNEY KARDASHIAN’S “LOSE THE BABY WEIGHT” SMOOTHIE RECIPE
Kourtney Kardashian made this smoothie EVERY DAY for breakfast after she had her last baby! 🙂 She looked forward to it after her early morning workout, and drank it out of a wineglass with a straw to make it feel fancy while she was still breastfeeding (this little trick is also recommended by several in the Blender Babes community!) For lunch she would have a piece of fish or salad with healthy fats such as avocado, and for dinner she would also make a fresh soup in her high powered Vitamix blender, such as butternut squash or tomato and zucchini!

Okay, so as Blender Babes flipped through the pages of our favorite gossip mag, we saw a gorgeous Kourtney K on the cover looking FABULOUS so soon after her baby! We weren’t at all surprised when we saw her weight loss tricks included a Vitamix blender! For all the mom’s out there who know how tough it can be to drop the baby weight, make sure to follow Kourtney’s routine and replace one meal per day with a protein packed smoothie and/or a healthy soup made in your Blendtec or Vitamix blender and exercise, or you can try our FREE 21 day Green Smoothie Challenge! xoxo ~ Blender Babes.

HEALTH BENEFITS OF CINNAMON
Cinnamon helps regulate blood sugar and helps your metabolism which is also great news for anyone who wants stable moods and energy levels. It can also reduce pain linked to arthritis. Studies have shown it effectively balances hormones due to a natural chemical called cinnamaldehyde, which is effective for menstrual pain and infertility. Cinnamon also contains fiber, calcium, iron, and manganese, and improves HDL cholesterol levels, reducing the risk of cardiovascular disease.
