Spice Infused Quinoa Smoothie

Did you know that most smoothies are loaded with sugar? I just looked up Jamba Juice and saw a small size smoothie contains +50grams of sugar (Large size contains 92grams!). That's 3x the Daily Recommended Intake!!! Whoa!

Good news - I've been playing around with different spices, and in the process created this nourishing and protein rich smoothie, without the glucose spike that satisfies your sweet cravings and is ideal during Ovulation Phase.

By adding spices like cinnamon, nutmeg and allspice you can reduce the glucose spike and naturally support healthy hormones.

This smoothie is perfect as a breakfast on-the-go or as a nourishing snack throughout the day. It's safe for those with PCOS or anyone looking for stable energy throughout the day. Cheers to nourishing your body and naturally balancing hormones. Enjoy!
