Drinking the same old Chocolate and Vanilla Protein shakes every can become boring. One way to add some variety to your shakes is right in your kitchen pantry. All you have to do is use a little imagination and sort through the many spices you have which are probably collecting dust. One of our favorite spices to add to our protein shakes and meal replacement powders is cinnamon. Added to either vanilla or chocolate shakes, cinnamon gives the shakes a great new flavor. We usually add about a 1/2 teaspoon to each shake before blending. We recommend you too start with this amount and then add more or less to suit your own tastes.
Another benefit of adding cinnamon is that it is shown to have many health benefits. Studies show it can lower LDL cholesterol levels and balance your insulin and glucose levels, which can help keep your energy consistent and minimize fat storage.
One of our favorite meal replacement powders to add cinammon to is chocolate and vanilla BSN Syntha 6.
