The Fall Intermittent Fasting Challenge starts on MONDAY!!🍁🎃
If you haven't already joined the Challenge yet, it's not too late! Head over HERE to get started.
To celebrate, I'm sharing a brand new, protein-packed smoothie recipe that you can sip on all challenge long ~ my Cinnamon Roll Protein Smoothie 😋
Scroll down for the recipe!
This smoothie is loaded with high quality ingredients to help support weight loss and wellness goals... and tastes DELICIOUS, of course!😋
The key ingredients include:
My Zero Sugar Protein Powder
This smoothie gets 20 grams of complete protein from my zero sugar, pasture-raised protein powder.
Protein is a key nutrient needed to help support a body recomposition goal (where you lose body fat without losing muscle mass). (1)
Plus, it uses monk fruit extract (without sugar alcohols!) to make it naturally zero sugar.
Pssst - don't have my zero sugar protein powder? You can find it HERE.
1/2 cup of Greek yogurt adds another 10 grams of complete protein to this smoothie, bringing it in at a total of 30 grams.
Unsweetened, full fat dairy products (like Greek yogurt!) are linked to less obesity and weight gain.(2)
Fermented pasture-raised dairy products naturally contain vitamin K2 which promotes bone and heart health.
Brazil nuts are *loaded* with selenium, which plays an important role in liver detoxification.
Flax seeds contain the plant-based form of anti-inflammatory omega-3 fatty acids (called ALA).
Maca has been found to help reduce fatigue in young women. (3)
Studies have also found that it might help to improve mood and energy. (4)
