“Added a little nutmeg. So warm and comforting while staying keto strong!”~ Kim K.
Keto Cinnamon Roll, a fat-burning Keto smoothie recipe, is a delectable and comforting drink that captures the essence of a cinnamon roll in a low-carb, high-fat beverage. This smoothie is perfect for a cozy breakfast or a satisfying dessert.
Cinnamon is known for its anti-inflammatory properties and may help regulate blood sugar levels. The almond butter, heavy cream, and protein powder provide healthy fats and protein to support satiety, muscle recovery, and ketosis.
Everything You Need
The Keto Cinnamon Roll Keto smoothie ingredients are:
- almond milk
- heavy cream
- almond butter
- vanilla protein powder (keto-friendly)
Almond Milk – Almond milk is a popular nut-based milk replacement that is naturally lactose-free, dairy-free, and completely vegan. It has a surprisingly diverse set of nutrients, including significant amounts of vitamin D, vitamin E, and calcium. Almond milk is also a heart-healthy beverage for those interested in lowering their cholesterol.
Milk – Milk, mainly from cows, sheep, and goats, has been consumed through out the world for thousands of years. It is protein-rich and packed with important nutrients including, vitamin B2, vitamin B12, vitamin D, calcium, phosphorous, potassium, and selenium. Milk is known to benefit bone health and may prevent osteoporosis.
Almond Butter – Almond butter is made from roasted, ground almonds and is often used as a substitute for peanut butter. It is high in monounsaturated fats, omega-3 fatty acids, and vitamin E. Almond butter can help lower cholesterol, reduce the risk of heart disease, and improve the health of artery walls.
Cinnamon – Cinnamon is an ancient spice that has been used medicinally for thousands of years. It is high in powerful antioxidants, such as polyphenols, and is loaded with cinnamaldehyde, which also provides significant health benefits. Cinnamon is a known anti-inflammatory, helps reduce cholesterol, improves sensitivity to insulin, and aids in the prevention of neurodegenerative diseases such as Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s.
Stevia – Stevia is a sugar substitute made from the leaves of the stevia plant. It is about 200 times sweeter than traditional refined table sugar, but contains no carbohydrates, calories, or artificial ingredients. However, many users find the aftertaste bitter and displeasing.
Whey Protein Powder – Whey protein powder is the most highly studied nutritional supplement readily available, providing great nutritional value and numerous health benefits. In addition to high quality protein, it also contains bioactive peptides called lactokinins. Whey protein powder promotes muscle growth and maintenance, helps lower blood pressure, can lessen the effects of Type 2 diabetes, and reduces inflammation.
A standard blender is all that is required to make these delicious smoothies. If you are making it for just one person, we recommend using the truly amazing personal NutriBullet Ultra as it is super-quick to set up and very easy to clean.
If you are making them for more than one person, we recommend a higher-end Vitamix blender that can process larger loads more efficiently.
For overnight storage, we recommend using a glass or BPA-free airtight container with a resealable lid.
