Chocolate Cinnamon Cupcake Smoothie

Yesterday was National Chocolate Cupcake Day. I decided to whip up a healthy chocolate treat to get me through my busy morning of workouts. I used Organic Cacao Powder with Maca by Himaiania  and Veggie Protein by MRM but please feel free to use your favorites. I also keep batches of oatmeal premixed with cinnamon, ground flax seed and chia seed for quick breakfasts. I added a 1/4 cup of my ready to go mix but just plain oatmeal and cinnamon will work just fine here. The stevia packet can be eliminated if you don’t want your smoothie as sweet or monk fruit, maple syrup, any natural sweetener will do the trick. This smoothie is full of superfoods for energy, cinnamon to help stabilize blood sugar, fiber to keep you full and cut your net carbs to a low absorption rate and 25 grams of protein (your protein powder and mix-ins can change this number). I hope the next time you are craving a chocolate cupcake for breakfast, this smoothie hits the spot.
