Raspberries and cinnamon might seem like an odd combination, but combine them in a smoothie, and they taste amazing! One of the best things about smoothies is how convenient they are. A good smoothie works well for a great breakfast or snack, and they’re well-loved by kids and adults.
The almond milk, heavy cream, and almond butter make this smoothie extra creamy, while the frozen raspberries add a little zesty kick for a refreshing aftertaste. Add a handful of spinach, and you’ve got yourself a nutritious, delicious smoothie ready to be enjoyed anytime, anywhere.
While all berries, like raspberries, are low in sugar, the tart and subtle sweetness make them a popular fruit choice for the keto diet. Raspberries are also low in calories, but this doesn’t take away from their fantastic health benefits! They’re high in fiber, vitamins, and minerals, with tons of antioxidants that help fight anti-aging.
The raspberries and spinach add a good punch of fiber which can help keep your digestive system regular, promote a healthy digestive tract, and feed your good gut bacteria to improve your mood and metabolism!
This smoothie recipe calls for the use of both almond milk and almond butter. Almonds are packed full of healthy fats, protein, and fiber alongside essential vitamins and minerals like vitamin E and magnesium. What a powerhouse! Because of their nutrient-packed profile, almonds are incredibly satiating (highly satisfying, allowing you to feel fuller, faster!). They are great to incorporate into your diet if weight loss is your goal.
If almond milk or almond butter is not a taste you enjoy, feel free to substitute them with a milk alternative like oat or plain milk. Other types of nut butters would work, too, like peanut or cashew. Keep in mind that the nutritional profile will slightly change with every substitution, so if you’re counting your macros, keep that in mind!
Bonus: The subtle spiced taste of cinnamon is not only delicious, but cinnamon is also packed full of antioxidants and has potent anti-bacterial and anti-inflammatory effects!
